How Does CIP and SIP Influcence Regulator and Control Valve Selection?

It’s fairly straightforward to size and select a valve for dedicated WFI or clean steam applications, however it's not that simple for valves in process applications.

Why are Diaphragms so Important for Sanitary Regulators and Control Valves?

The major wearing component in a regulator or control valve is the diaphragm, and the cost of a diaphragm failure can be catastrophic.

What is the Best Way to Minimize Pariculate in a Clean Air or Gas Stream?

What is the Best Way to Minimize Pariculate in a Clean Air or Gas Stream?

First, do not specify NPT connections if you are worried about particulate.

Should I Specify a Diaphragm Seal or an O-Ring Seal for my Control Valve?

Should I Specify a Diaphragm Seal or an O-Ring Seal for my Control Valve?

The answer depends on the process media and the end user engineer preferences for that media.
