Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof Large Particle Valve (Unique LP-F)
For applications with very large particles or highly viscous fluids, this valve offers the same basic advantages as Unique mixproof valves but are specially designed with large openings up to 45 mm in diameter.
This Unique Mixproof LP-F valve is based on the well proven and exceptionally flexible design of the Unique Mixproof valves. The valves are designed for gentle handling of the product containing large particulates up to 1¾” (45 mm) or products with high viscosity. Additional to the Unique Mixproof Large Particle valve (LP) the LP-F is equipped with a lower flush to enable 100% cleanability of the lip seal in the lower sealing element through seat-lift cleaning alone. This an improved performance compared to Spiral clean on the lower plug and reduces the need for additional utility installations for external CIP
Unique Mixproof LP-F is remote-controlled by means of compressed air. The valve is a normally closed (NC) valve. It is as standard supplied seat lift, which enables handling of two different products at the same time, or safe handling of one product while seat-lift cleaning operations are being conducted in the other portion of the valve – all without any risk of cross-contamination. The 6” valve is as standard also equipped with balanced lower plug to protect against the effects of high pressure and water hammer. The 4” valve is, in order to accommodate 1½” (45mm) particles, not supplied with balanced lower plug. The 4” is however as standard equipped with a boost actuator to accommodate a product pressure of up to 10 bar. When seat lift of the lower plug is performed the valve will simultaneously clean the lower plug seal as well as the lover sealing element lip seal.

"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.”
