In the food and beverage industry, all process and automation components must be built to withstand continuous use and stress in a variety of conditions. This is especially true for Valves. Typically, valves are needed to control the flow of media. Without proper control, an entire batch of product could be lost, costing the user thousands of dollars in lost product and time.

Typically, the two most common control valve types you see in food and beverage industry applications are a plastic or metal check valves, or ball valves. Both check and ball valves work to prevent backflow from occurring. With check valves, they rely on pressure in the line to activate valve open or close functions.  A check valve will open or crack as line pressure increases. It will close and seal when the pressure drops preventing backwards media flow.  The ball valve is manually opened or closed to control flow. Specialty manufacturing makes Ball and Check valves with a vast array of materials, end, spring and size options.
