Sanitary valves are necessary for manufacturing processes where maintaining a clean, sterile environment is critical. Sanitary valves feature an absence of crevices or cavities where bacteria other contaminants can otherwise build up. The design and construction of a sanitary valve must facilitate easy clean-in-place and circulate clean-in-place solutions. Some industries and applications where sanitary valves are standard include Dairy, Food and Beverage, Brewing, Wine and Spirits, Sterilizing Equipment, Pharmaceuticals, Medical Equipment and Supplies, Biochemical Processing, Fragrance and Cosmetics. These industries' common valve types are not limited to butterfly valves, sample valves, check valves, air relief, and pressure relief valves.
