Ten top tips for Alfa Laval valves
Ten top tips to keep your Alfa Laval valve in tip top condition
- Make regular service and maintenance on your Alfa Laval valves for them to be able to perform optimally. The most cost-effective approach is following our simple preventive maintenance programme which will prolong the lifespan of your Alfa Laval valves.
- Use optimum air quality in operating the valves, i.e. avoiding dust, water and oil in the air system for a longer lifetime and service interval on the actuators.
- Only operate within temperature ranges specified in the instruction manual to ensure smooth operation.
- Follow the technical data during installation, operation and maintenance to ensure correct operation.
- Regularly inspect your Alfa Laval valve for leakage to ensure your process is running efficiently.
- Carefully monitor your cleaning process since the composition of the cleaning solution can over time affect the rubber.
- In order to ensure the longest possible lifetime for rubber seals it is essential to choose the right quality for the actual duty.
- Always use Alfa Laval genuine spare parts which are designed for durability and performance.
- For product wetted parts ensure lubrication with Paraliq GTE 703 or a similar approved grease which makes maintaining your Alfa Laval valve easier.
- Always keep Alfa Laval spare rubber seals in stock to avoid unplanned downtime.
