3 Way 120° CIP Ball Valve - Pig Launcher

Function

HPS 3 Way 120º Pig Launchers negate the need for a traditional two valve ‘T’ launch arrangement. This single valve arrangement can be attached to the outlet port of the pump and allow product to pass through a full bore path, whilst in the “Transfer Position” (see section view).

When transfer is complete the valve will rotate to the “Pig Launch Position”, opening a path for the Pig to enter the transfer line, whilst blocking the path from the pump outlet port.

The Pig is Isolated in an offline housing when not in use, allowing access for Pig inspection or replacement during normal product transfer.

These Pig Launchers can be mounted in the horizontal orientation (pictured above left) or the vertical orientation (pictured below right).

 

Fully Cleanable

A unique feature of this range of ball valves is the incorporation of inflatable silicone seals instead of traditional rigid Teflon seals. Deflation of the seals enable the valve cavity, seal face, seal to ball contact point, pig & pig launch chamber to be fully cleaned as part of any normal CIP or SIP process.
