EvoGuard

Valve line for the food & beverage industry

Excellent valve technology throughout the line

Only strong and reliable components are good enough for your line. A decision in favour of the high-performance EvoGuard valves is a farsighted decision on the direction you are taking. With this valve series, you benefit from the vast experience of the KronEs development team that knows all the details of the demands placed on the components in the beverage and food industry. With the consistent development of the EvoGuard valve series, all requirements concerning seal quality and service life, as well as hygiene have been brought together. The EvoGuard valve series comprises a components kit that contributes to high performance at every point in the production line. The disc, seat and double seat valves have been designed with modern methods and up-to-date materials. They include various clever details of decisive importance in daily operation.

The most important part of any valve or shut-off device is the seal. A safe, reliable production flow is only guaranteed if the product path can be connected and blocked again. To ensure that this is the case, EvoGuard valves are subjected to extensive testing. FEM analysis is run on all valves to evaluate the structural performance of the seal and simulate the maximum load. From the user perspective, this means that the seal is as safe and reliable as possible, and material wear is kept to a minimum. Extensive testing is carried out on all of the components to verify the design. For example, the engineers assess the interaction between the seal and the housing or the valve disc, and they also look at the connection to the pneumatic actuator. They pay special attention to safetyrelated features to ensure that production personnel are able to safely handle the valves.

Zahlen, Daten, Fakten Seat valves

Flow control is a major aspect of beverage production. Durable, high-grade valves are needed for typical operations such as redirection, shutting off of product flows and tank discharge. Once again, careful attention must be paid to the seal, because the seal configuration and clearance have a major impact on the safety and reliability of the production process. Long service life and ease of replacement are other important factors to take into consideration during seal selection.

EvoGuard single seat valves are de-

signed to deliver high performance during day-to-day operation. The configuration of the valve disc with balancer minimises damage caused by pressure surges to valves that close in the direction of flow. The metal stop on the valve disc and the positioning of the seal prevent excessive stress on the seal. Optimal compliance with hygienic design is another outstanding feature of the valves.

Double seal valve

The EvoGuard double seal valve provides safe isolation of product chambers as well as seal monitoring. This seat valve has a threaded valve disc, built-in safety chamber and two seals. The safety chamber can be monitored and cleaned using two flush valves.

Any seal defect causes leakage which can be detected at the flush valve. The seal can then be quickly replaced. All of the other design details are the same as on the single seat valve. The valves are suitable for safe separation of media and they have a monitoring function.

Double seat valves

Double seat valves are needed to help manage the flow of product or cleaning fluids in highly automated systems. Pre-programmed routings can be used to control the production sequence. Parallel flows in a tank farm can be reliably kept separate, increasing the efficiency of production operations. The design configuration and seal geometry are the essential features of this valve technology.

Two factors play a crucial role in design for maximum reliability and durability: axial and radial sealing in the valve housing using an identical seal and static fixing point decoupled from the dynamically loaded sealing point The actuator has a built-in timing function which supports fast, short cycle times and keeps air consumption to an absolute minimum. This gives machine designers great flexibility to deploy double seat valve nodes.
