Coperion diverter valve wins innovation award

Coperion, with offices in North and South America, was awarded the Food Safety Innovations Award for its CIP design WYK diverter valve at the 2015 International Dairy Show.

The patent-pending design of the WYK diverter valve incorporates a retractable rotor assembly and is completely designed in accordance with European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) guidelines. This design permits the automatic cleaning of pneumatic conveying pipes.

The valve is the first and only one of its kind available on the market.
The WYK Two-Way diverter valve is ideally suited for inline material handling of hygienic and difficult-to-handle powders, such as whey powder, lactose, dried milk powders, and infant formula. This valve can be used in pneumatic conveying systems, in order to divert transfer of the powder to different locations, and it is often used in return lines in spray drying applications. The fully automatic CIP cleaning design permits complete purging of all product residues after the automatic cleaning process.
