TrueClean® CIP'able Air Blow Check Valve

Increase cleaning efficiency with an air blow check valve that doesn't need to be disassembled to clean. Central States Industrial (CSI) offers the TrueClean® clean-in-place capable (CIP'able) air blow check valvethe first and only sanitary air blow check valve that can be cleaned in place with a process line.

The TrueClean® CIP'able air blow check valve acts as a traditional air blow check valve by allowing air to flow into a process line while preventing product from flowing into the air line. Unlike traditional air blow check valves, the TrueClean® CIP'able air blow check valve can open without performing an air blow. With the valve open, CIP fluid is able to clean the valve along with the process line. The simple, compact valve easily fits in place of an existing standard air blow check valve. 

The TrueClean® valve has been authorized to carry the 3-A symbol under Standard 58-01 of the 3-A Sanitary Standard for vacuum breakers and check valves for milk and milk products.

The TrueClean CIP'able air blow check valve is available in 1.5 and 2 inch sizes.

Applications

The TrueClean® CIP'able air blow check valve features a compact design that can easily replace an existing standard air blow check valve. Typical uses include air agitation, air-drying lines, and product recovery.

Working Principle

While product is flowing, the primary valve stem is closed, preventing backflow into the air line. A secondary o-ring seal also seals the air line. When air pressure is applied to the primary air inlet, both the primary and secondary seals open to allow air to flow into the process line.

During CIP, air is applied to the actuator inlet. This opens the primary valve stem, but leaves the air line closed. CIP fluid is able to flow around the primary valve stem and within the valve internals, thoroughly cleaning the unit.

Features

The TrueClean CIP'able air blow check valve can be cleaned in place with a process line. It fits in place of an existing standard air blow check valve. It is compact and easy to install, with minimal replacement parts. The valve is crafted from corrosion resistant 316L stainless steel and comes with either a 1.5 inch or 2 inch Tri-Clamp® connection and Viton or EPDM seals. A hose kit and a 3-A filter disk kit are available for installation.
