Alfa Laval Butterfly Valves: LKB-F Valve
Full range, full spectrum
The Alfa Laval LKB butterfly valve range consists of modular units designed to meet the full spectrum of requirements at working pressures from full vacuum to 10 bar. All valves are FDA-compliant, designed for use in a wide range of stainless steel pipe systems, and can be built to comply with virtually any installation standard. Alfa Laval LKB-F for flange connections to easily remove the valve body without dismantling piping setups. For both ISO and DIN.
LKB-F butterfly valves come with several features that ensure reliability performance. A highly polished stainless steel disc with surface smoothness down to Ra<0.8 µm and bearing bushes clipped onto the disc stems prevent metal-to-metal abrasion and ensure smoother disc movement.
The stem diameter provides particularly low flow resistance, ensuring gentle product treatment for low and medium-viscosity products. In addition, Alfa Laval seal technology provides greater thermal stability, better chemical resistance and improved tensile strength.
Alfa Laval LKB-F butterfly valves can be complemented with lockable handle for manual operation of with an actuator and in combination with either a valve indication unit or Alfa Laval ThinkTop valve sensing and control units.
- For manual operation: Alfa Laval provides a complete range of handles, including a multi-position lockable handle.
- For automated operation: A selection of different actuators is available; special double-spring design enables application of maximum torque to the valve disc at breakaway and seal positions. This makes it easy to integrate these valve units into larger systems operated from a central point, and/or to operate them automatically for maximum efficiency.

"I received the cart yesterday, thanks for the fast delivery! It feels sturdy. I sat on it. It does not bounce. It is also easy to clean and wipe or wash down."
Vice President, Analytical Development and Manufacturing
"Thanks again for reacting so quickly and meeting me halfway with the element. We will be able to get installed and have things keep moving overnight with the night crew. The little things like this are always greatly appreciated when working with Liquidyne."
“This pump cut our processing time from 3 days to 1 shift. I’m not giving this pump back. You will have to come and get it if you want it... and that won’t likely happen.”
