KSB at BRAU Beviale 2012 in Nuremberg

From 13 to 15 November, KSB Aktiengesellschaft will showcase its comprehensive range of pumps and valves for hygienic food transport at the BRAU Beviale exhibition 2012 in Nuremberg.

The focal point of KSB’s presentation will be the five hygienic pump series Vitachrom, Vitacast, Vitastage, Vitalobe and Vitaprime. Thanks to their almost complete lack of dead volumes, the pumps are very easy to clean. They meet every requirement in respect of absolutely sterile processes. The pumps’ excellent cleaning and steaming in place (CIP/SIP) capabilities are also promoted by electropolished wetted components made of high-grade stainless steel. Whether it be for handling mash and wort or products in the hygienic production area of breweries: thanks to the wide range of variants, these pumps can be employed for almost all tasks related to the transport of liquid or viscous food. All pumps belonging to the Vita series have been awarded the certificates common to the industry, and their elastomer components conform to FDA standards.

As a novelty at this year’s BRAU Beviale in Nuremburg KSB will exhibit a new generation of multi-functional valve control units and positioners for pneumatic quarter-turn and linear actuators. Thanks to their modular design, the units are ideally suited for use in the beer and beverage industry. The new AMTRONIC and SMARTRONIC incorporate functions ranging from simple open/close control of a pneumatic valve with open/closed position signalling to control tasks which are completed independently of a higher-level control station. Operators will enjoy the comforts of an all-in package consisting of valve, actuator and intelligent control unit or positioner, supplied fully parameterised and tested.

As well as the various pump series, KSB will exhibit several models from its impressive range of valves. The SISTO-C diaphragm valves on display alongside shut-off butterfly valves and gate valves are ideal for hygienic and sterile applications in the food and beverage industry. Their components are made exclusively of high-alloy, austenitic materials. The bodies have no dead volumes and can be cleaned without leaving any residues. By using multi-port valves, it is possible to install very complex systems without dead end pipe runs.
