Flexibility and No Cross-contamination

Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof Valves provide maximum flexibility in hygienic flow processing by making it possible to handle two different fluids at the same time, with no risk of cross-contamination. Using two independent plugs and seals means a single mixproof valve can often replace two or more valves of other types.



Alfa Laval supplies several different designs of mixproof valves, all with leakage detection, that help boost reliability and safety levels. They enable you to design versatile set-ups that are both cost-effective and easy to maintain, as well as providing you with important new processing opportunities.

The Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof Valves give you a modular solution that is easily tailored to your specific requirements. This also means you only pay for the exact features and capabilities you really need. Here s an example:
As part of the range, Alfa Laval offers the Unique Mixproof Large Particle Valve with features ideal for handling fluids with high viscosity or large particles such as lotions, soups and yoghurts. This valve is specially designed with large openings handling particles up to 45 mm in diameter to minimize pressure loss and securing product integrity by eliminating the risk of product damage or blockage.

The Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof Valves provide:

  • Low cost of ownership and no risk of cross-contamination
  • Efficiency gains by greater flexibility
  • Reliable operation and easy validation of plant performance
  • Substantial water-, chemical- and heating savings during Cleaning-in-Place
