Initially created and intended for dairy tanks, the Minidisc® valve is a disc shut-off valve that can be used for any liquids, powders, slurries, and in aggressive environments. The design of the disc valve is simple: the disc meets the shaft at a 45° angle, leaving the seat unpierced and preserving product integrity.
The Minidisc® Valves offers 180° rotation which angles the disc precisely for product flow, allowing the valve to open without resistance and remain in its intended position. The valve can be quickly and completely shut off with a half turn of the valve handle. The valve status is clearly indicated with an “OPEN – CLOSE” label. The Minidisc® features an optional locking handle which locks it into the desired position and converts it into a regulating valve.
The Minidisc® is a low-maintenance component that provides many benefits and features, including:
