Test results – over 71% water savings
Upgrading all valve control tops on an anti-mixing valve group is not always the optimal approach to increase process performance, especially for industries with less frequent cleaning needs.
At least that’s what our experts at the Application and Innovation Center discovered when they researched a good upgrade strategy for the brewery. Our experts tested three scenarios with a configuration identical to that of the brewery.
The optimal solution? Upgrading one in four valve controllers was by far the most attractive solution to upgrading all of them.
“A complete upgrade is not always the best approach. Sometimes a little ingenuity goes a long way, ”explains Mario Kurilic, Technical Sales Director, Food & Water, Alfa Laval.
He continues, “Using a ThinkTop V70 to control four valve actuators resulted in 71% water savings and required less investment than changing all of the control tops. “

Faster valve cleaning, faster payback time
The ThinkTop V70 with Burst Seat Cleaning function effectively cleans the valve seat much faster and uses less water than the current brewery cleaning system.
This achieves a return on investment in less than a year, depending on cleaning requirements, frequency and cost structure.
