Inflatable Seal

Segment Ball Valves are the most sanitary valves on the market.
Due to their design, there are no cavities or hidden areas,  either when the valve is opened
or closed where product can collect or build.

A Segment Ball Valve can be used both as an inlet and an outlet valve and van be used to shut off a stream of flowing product. The most
commonly used applications in which the Segment Ball Valves are applied are: conical blenders, mixers and dryers, reactors, double conical
dryers, horizontal blenders and dryers, agitator vessels, sluices and in piping. Segment ball valves can also be a part of a new installation
or can replace out-dated valves in the overhaul - revamp market.

AGP GmbH´s Segment Ball Valve is a sanitary, simple design and low in maintenance. This valve can be used in a wide range of industries.
It is a vacuum and pressure tight, pneumatic or manually operated valve that is capable of multiple cycles, even in abrasive, hazardous or
toxic applications.

A residue scraper is positioned tenths of millimeters above the segment which removes excess product collected on top the segment to
prevent product from damaging or shortening the seal's lifetime.

An inflatable seal provides a pressure tight closure, against the segments surface when in the closes position. When the valve is opened,
a unique feature implemented in the valves Control Unit not only deflates the seal but also completely retracts it from the segments surface.
The main advantage of this feature is that there is minimum drag caused during the valve's operation, which avoids excess wear and tear
to the valve's moving components.

Maintenance and stand still times are reduced to a minimum, not only to the choice of high-grade materials for the inflatable seal but also
because of the special maintenance-free type of bearings that are used to support the valves Segment.
