The NanoValve™ range of homogenizing valves is specifically developed for milk, yogurt, ice cream, and juice applications – in other words, high volume (flow) applications which are homogenized at lower pressures.
We are proud to introduce the NanoValve™ XS which is based on the proven NanoValve™ technology. The NanoValve™ XS has a special valve profile which has been engineered to match the requirements of the US fresh milk producers:
- large flow-rates, in the range of 5,000 to 12,000 gph
- low operating pressure, below 1,500 psi
- extended shelf life
Compared to a traditional homogenizing valve the NanoValve™ XS achieves the same homogenization effect at a much lower pressures. Typically it would require 2,200 psi with a standard homogenizing valve to reach 0.750÷0.800 microns. The same result can be obtained with NanoValve™ XS at pressure below 1,500 psi, achieving a 30% energy saving on normal operations.
