The MH shutter valve is suitable in products with large particles, high viscous products or for strict requirements minimizing pressure loss.
MH Koltek valve is a manually or pneumatically operated valve, designed for use in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical and other industries where valves of sanitary design are needed.
The valve consist of a rigid body with an internal cylindrical bore and 2 or 3 ports for pipe connection. The two lids have guide rings for an internal shaft which supports and positions the shutter.
The stainless steel handle or the actuator is fitted to turn the shaft.
The actuator consists a system of cylinders and one or two main pistons interconnected with a toothed bar which interacts with a gear wheel on the valve shaft. The system is insensitive to pressure shocks in the valve.
The valve has welding ends as standard.

How it works
The Alfa Laval Koltek Valve is manually or pneumatically operated valve. The air-actuated valve can be fitted with an Alfa Laval ThinkTop® V50 or V70 control unit, or an indication unit installed laterally for remote indication of the valve position.
The manually operated valve can be fitted with indication units (used for Alfa Laval LKLA actuators) installed laterally. The valve actuator is available in two versions: a single-acting actuator or a double-acting actuator. The single-acting actuator operates with one main piston, whereas the double-acting actuator operates with two main pistons.
