Food / Dairy / Beverage industries
Corrosion challenges are often demanding for manufacturers of products containing high chloride concentration or low pH-levels. Here are some examples:
- Food: Soy sauce, ketchup or citrus acid extraction
- Dairy: Lactic acid, whey and brine from cheese manufacturing
- Beverage: Isotonic drinks, minerals dosing and hot water systems
Meeting the demand for higher corrosion resistance, Alfa Laval's newly launched high alloy versions of its well-known Unique Mixproof valve secure superior product safety and longer equipment lifetime. The new Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof High Alloy version comes in two optional materials: Hastelloy C22 and AL6XN.
Home & Personal Care industries
When producing anti-perspirant deodorants, fabric softeners and bleach type products there may be a need for equipment with high corrosion resistance in certain parts of the process.
Products containing quats with high chloride content and aluminium chlorohydrate tend to increase pitting or crevice corrosion leading to possible equipment failure and systems leakages. The new Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof High Alloy, manufactured in either Hastelloy C22 or AL6XN, provides two solutions for higher corrosion resistance, longer equipment life and reduced production downtime.
Biotech & Pharmaceutical industries
The UltraPure version of Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof valve was launched to meet the high standards needed in the growing pharmaceutical industry.
Like all UltraPure equipment, the new Unique Mixproof UltraPure comes with the Alfa Laval Q-doc package ensuring full traceability (3.1 certification) and seals with FDA, USP class VI and TSE/ADI certificates. Furthermore, the new Unique Mixproof UltraPure version will be available in high alloy materials: Hastelloy C22 and AL6XN. These alloys meet the demands for higher corrosion resistance from aggressive applications including, buffer solutions, cleaning liquids, high salt solution etc.
