เพรสเชอร์เกจ has designed the VARIVENT MX with components that keep products from mixing with the cleaning liquid, even under distinctive loads. The cavity chamber is fitted with a vacuum self-drainage system and balancers on both valve discs. For maximum bodily security, GEA makes use of the Venturi impact which is created by the particular form of the move channels, inflicting a vacuum on the alternative seal throughout lifting, preventing pressure will increase. As a end result, no cleansing liquid can enter the opposite pipe carrying the product whereas a valve seat is being lifted or cleaned, even when a seal is defective.
