Unique SSV Pneumatic
Alfa Laval Unique Single Seat Valves (SSVs) are robust, reliable and versatile pneumatic single seat valves designed for uninterrupted production in a broad range of hygiene-critical applications. Valve bodies, plugs and actuators of these pneumatic control valves can be configured to meet virtually any requirement resulting in cost-effective solutions that meet high standards of hygiene and aseptic compatibility.
- Designed for ease of maintenance and low cost of ownership
- Few moving parts reduce service requirements and inventory costs
- Superior cleanability - smooth inner valve body (surface finish of Ra ² 0.8_m) eliminates crevices
- Extended seal life due to defined seal compression
- Static seal leak detection helps ensure product safety
- Double lip seal provides protection against bacterial contamination
Tried and tested valve safety: The Unique SSV range is built on a proven modular platform used on more than a million valves in service worldwide. Pressed from a single stainless steel disc, the valve body is extremely strong and durable, thus ensuring production safety. The enhanced performance of the actuator makes operation safe and efficient.
Exceptional valve hygiene
The Unique SSV range of food grade valves is engineered to provide excellent hygiene and cleanability. With a surface finish of Ra ² 0.8_m, the smooth, weld-free valve body eliminates crevices that can trap bacteria. The design of the plug supports enhanced cleaning-in-place (CIP) capabilities, and a double-acting lip seal that minimizes any risk of cross-contamination.
These single seat valves meet most hygienic standards requested in the dairy, food and beverage, and personal care industries. The Unique SSV range is EHEDG-certified and authorized to carry the 3-A symbol. The range of Alfa Laval valves also provides full traceability in compliance with the EU Food Regulation 1935/2004.
Greater valve durability
To ensure high sealing quality, this range of single seat valves features defined compression of the O-rings with metal-to-metal contact between plug and seat. This significantly reduces wear and extends valve service life. The standard Unique SSV is supplied with a semi-maintainable actuator that has a five-year warranty.
Low total cost of ownership
Thanks to its straightforward, reliable design, the Unique SSV range provides long service life, reduced product loss, greater product safety and more processing uptime. Few moving parts reduce service requirements and inventory costs. More effective CIP procedures with reduced cleaning cycles and, subsequently, the reduced use of cleaning fluids, water and utilities also contribute to the Unique SSV's low total cost of ownership.

"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.”
