Alfa Laval valve matrix solutions

Processes in hygienic industries such as beverage, food, dairy, pharma and personal care are becoming increasingly complex. Some of the challenges include higher volumes, increased efficiency, and reduction in water and energy use. That is why it is essential to optimise flow management without compromising flexibility, plant safety, product quality or hygiene.

A valve matrix — also known as valve cluster — helps to maximise process efficiency through optimised flow management. Compared to traditional flow plates, a valve matrix is designed to allow simultaneous circulation of liquids — including CIP — on several levels, with the exact number of lines and rows to match the specific requirements of the process. The matrix ensures the flexibility to run multiple products to multiple destinations, while other lines are being cleaned.

Alfa Laval provide prebuilt valve matrices customised to meet specific, individual requirements, helping to ensure efficient flow management using as few components as possible and dealing effectively with key issues such as thermal cycling, cleanability, drainability and flow control.

Alfa Laval valve matrices can be supplied preassembled and pretested, as well as fully wired and with all the necessary pneumatic tubing, junction boxes and control panels preconnected. Complex installations can be brought online as quickly as possible, saving time and avoiding lost revenue associated with on-site assembly, troubleshooting and downtime.
