We are thrilled to share the news of our new partnership with Jungmann Armaturen, a leading German manufacturer renowned for their high-quality stainless steel hygienic safety valves. Hygienic safety valves are specialised valves that are designed to prevent overpressure in tanks, pipelines, and other equipment in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. These valves are crucial in ensuring product safety and cleanliness by preventing product contamination and meeting strict industry standards.
Design & Materials
Hygienic safety valves are typically made with high-quality materials, such as stainless steel, that are resistant to corrosion and easy to clean and sanitise. The valves are designed with a smooth, crevice-free interior that prevents the build-up of harmful bacteria and contaminants, which can compromise the safety and quality of the final product. The valves are also designed to prevent contamination of the process media by the valve itself, ensuring that the final product is safe and of the highest quality. Design features of Jungmann hygienic safety valves include:
- Membrane seal
- High flow rate
- Clamp connections
- Finish of ≤ 0.4µm to ensure that the medium remains uncontaminated
CE & FDA Certified
These high-performance hygienic safety valves have been carefully designed and constructed with durable stainless steel to meet the rigorous demands of the food and drug processing industries. To further ensure their safety and reliability, they have been certified by two important regulatory agencies: the European Union’s (EU) CE and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The CE certification indicates that these valves have undergone thorough testing and conform to strict EU standards for safety, reliability, and environmental protection. The certification process involves an assessment of the valves’ design, materials, manufacturing processes, and testing procedures, as well as an evaluation of their safety and performance characteristics. This certification is mandatory for certain types of valves used in the European Economic Area (EEA), such as pressure equipment, and failure to comply with the relevant directives and standards can result in penalties or even the removal of the product from the market.
The FDA certification, on the other hand, indicates that these valves are suitable for use in the food and drug industry, as they have been tested and approved to meet the high standards set by the FDA for product safety and quality. This certification ensures that the valves are made from materials that are safe for use with food and drugs and that they do not contribute to product contamination. This certification is an important requirement for manufacturers and end-users in the food and drug industry, as it provides assurance that the product meets high standards for safety and reliability and is in compliance with FDA regulations.
Both providing end-users with the assurance that these high-performance hygienic safety valves have undergone extensive testing and meet the highest standards for safety, reliability, and environmental protection.
The primary function of hygienic safety valves is to prevent overpressure in tanks, pipelines, and other equipment. If pressure levels exceed the designated maximum, the safety valve will automatically open to release the excess pressure and prevent damage or potential safety hazards. This ensures that the equipment remains safe and operational, while also protecting the final product from contamination. In addition to providing reliable protection against overpressure, hygienic safety valves are designed to meet strict industry standards and regulations.
What types of applications are Jungmann hygienic safety valves used for?
Jungmann hygienic safety valves are used in a wide range of applications, including tanks, pipelines, and other equipment used in the pharmaceutical, medical, food and dairy, chemical and steam industries. They are typically used to prevent overpressure in these systems, which can be a safety hazard and cause damage to equipment.
Hygienic safety valves are available in a range of sizes and configurations to meet the needs of different applications. They can also be customised to meet specific requirements, such as pressure range, connection type, and materials of construction, to ensure optimal performance and reliability. Jungmann hygienic safety valves are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations:
- Available in sizes DN15 – DN40
- Temperature range: -50° – +300°
- Pressure range: 0.5 – 16bar
- Manufactured 316L as standard
- EPDM/ FFKM membrane seals
In conclusion, hygienic safety valves are a critical component in the food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries, where product safety and cleanliness are of utmost importance. These valves are designed with high-quality materials and a smooth, crevice-free interior to prevent the build-up of harmful bacteria and contaminants, while also providing reliable protection against overpressure. They are designed to meet strict industry standards and can be customised to meet specific requirements, ensuring optimal performance and safety.
