Hygienic Design and Valve Manifolds

Sponsored by: Burkert

Focused on:

  • Design
  • Innovation
  • Valve
  • Yield

Date: 11 December


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Valve manifolds following hygienic design guidelines result in higher process yields.

In a modern processing plant, higher yield is important for today and in preparation for the future.

The minimum foot print, the maximum clean ability and the optimum process flexibility are important topics to get a higher process yield.

Finding new and efficient solutions to answer the above challenges is ever more an issue, as process plant professionals are tasked to increase output whilst reducing waste, energy and down-time.
Manifold solutions improve higher yield but different levels of manifolds can be made, demanding a higher level of attention regarding the individual needs of a particular application, plant standards and operators. In today’s modern hygienic plants recommendations and guidelines have more and more influence, due to the number of options available to a user.

This Webinar reviews these options in combination with the above statements and explores how the choices and applications will affect overall plant efficiency.
