Dairy Show 2015 - Hygienic material handling equipment for the dairy industry

International Dairy Show 2015 - Coperion and Coperion K-Tron present components in sanitary design

At this year’s International Dairy Show, Coperion and Coperion K-Tron will exhibit in booth 8355 at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. Guests of the booth will see a WYK Two-Way Diverter Valve, a ZRD Hygienic Rotary Valve and a P30 Sanitary Vacuum Sequencing Central Receiver.

Coperion and Coperion K-Tron are proud to be finalists in food safety and packaging categories for the International Dairy Association’s Innovations Award. The WYK Diverter Valve, known for its innovative design, has been nominated for its substantial achievements in performance and having shown significant advancement in its application.

WYK Two-Way Diverter Valve

The WYK Two-Way Diverter Valve is ideally suited for inline material handling of hygienic and difficult to handle powders, such as whey powder, lactose, dried milk powders and infant formula. This valve can be used in pneumatic conveying systems, in order to divert transfer of the powder to different locations. The fully automatic CIP cleaning design permits complete purging of all product residues after the automatic cleaning process. Due to a unique retractable rotor assembly, the rotor can be pulled slightly out of the housing towards the rear of the valve, thus allowing the cleaning solution to rinse all product contact surfaces within the valve. In addition, specialty purge openings in the actuator plate enable an intense rinsing flow and complete discharge of the rinsing effluent.

Beside the WYK Two-Way Diverter Valve we will exhibit a hygienic ZRD Rotary Valve and a P30 Vacuum Sequencing Central Receiver for sanitary pneumatic conveying.
