Butterfly Sanitary Valve

Unique design & 3-A approved valve for manual or clean-in-place (CIP) method of cleaning, no tools required for dissasembly.

The Minidisc valve is a disc shutoff 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 Lumaco Minidisc 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.

Minidisc valves regulate and control food, drink, and dairy applications. Minidisc valves are available in various seats and O-ring materials, ensuring the right fit for your application. O-ring materials offered are silicone, FKM, EPDM, and buna. Minidisc seat materials offered are silicone, FKM, EPDM, buna, and PTFE.

Minidisc valves are available with manual and digital electro-pneumatic controls to optimize and maximize flow and efficiency. Although designed for dairy tanks, Minidiscs are perfect for any liquid or slurry, and valve performance can be monitored from a control room connected by a field bus interface.

The Minidisc is a low-maintenance component that provides many benefits and features, including:

  • Stainless steel type 316: The Minidisc is made of corrosion-resistant 316 stainless steel, making it ideal for applications involving corrosive substances.
  • Sanitary: For sanitation purposes, the Minidisc is designed to ensure that your product does not stagnate inside the valve.
  • Easy to clean and repair: The valve quickly dismantles without tools when opened by its standard heavy-duty clamp. O-rings prevent the product from entering the stem housing, and two leak detector holes will notify the operator when the O-rings need to be replaced.
  • Adaptable: A clamp connection on both ends makes it easy to use the Minidisc Valve for a variety of purposes. By adding a locking handle, the Minidisc transforms into a regulating valve that can be locked into any position.
  • Cost-effective: The Minidisc is easy to maintain with only two low-cost elements that require occasional replacement: the seat and two stem O-rings. These parts are readily available, inexpensive to replace, and easy to switch out.
  • Easy to use: A half turn of the handle provides quick, positive, leak-free shutoff. The “open-close” label indicates the status at a glance.
