Valve optimization

Valve optimization influences a process line’s cleanability, performance and maintenance. Evaluate our range of hygienic valves under your production and cleaning-in-place (CIP) conditions. We can also work with you to optimize CIP performance for mixproof valve clusters.

Let experts at the Alfa Laval Fluid Handling Application & Innovation Centre solve the challenges you face. That’s what a leading global brewery did to determine the best way to reduce water costs when cleaning mixproof valves.

No matter the industry or the challenge, our experts can come up with an innovative, fit-for-purpose solution for you.


What do customers say?


Simulating our production, Alfa Laval performed real trials to quantify possible water and energy savings. We’re now saving 1.2 million litres of water every year, and our investment in new automation had a payback of only 4 months!

- A European dairy customer


We asked Alfa Laval to perform a cleaning trial to replace our current spray heads. In performing about 20 CIP duties per month, we found that their Alfa Laval TJ20G had a payback of only 6 months - due to the water savings alone. Furthermore, cleaning was significantly improved.

- A leading global home-personal care manufacturer


Having conducted a trial with a HPM15 powder mixer at the Application & Innovation Centre, we were able to maximize the customer’s xanthan concentration formula and accurately predict production cost! Alfa Laval’s expertise helped us secure this important order.

- A German integrator


We have learned more about what it takes to clean our mixing tank. Alfa Laval demonstrated that we can clean the tank in just 17 minutes using an Alfa Laval TJ20G. That’s time savings of 60%. At the same time, we looked at minimizing waste, which the TJ20G proved capable of doing.

- A leading global colorant/paint producer
