Valve housings, flanges & fittings

Valve housings

Our valve housings meet the highest standards for hygienic processes. The height of our dead-zone-free housings exactly corresponds to the diameter of the connection pipeline. This avoids domes and sumps with their negative effects such as oxidization damage or cleaning problems. The special ball shape of the housing offers the best flow profiles without flow separation. Optionally, numerous housing combinations are available with either clamped or welded seats.
