Application of Globe Valve in Food Industry
Reducing environmental pollution has become an important task for enterprises and their leaders.
A food company mainly produces rice crackers such as snow crackers, senbei, and rice crackers. Due to the needs of the production process, steam is one of the main energy sources of the factory. Almost all production processes such as steaming, forming, primary drying, secondary drying and various heat exchangers of the first and second projects use steam. There are many sub-cylinders in the process of steam transportation from the boiler room to the production equipment. The performance of the shut-off valve on the sub-cylinders plays a very important role in the entire steam transmission and energy saving.
Before 2008, many valves were filled with stop valves. Such vacuum valves had poor sealing performance, inflexible switching and short service life. It is often necessary to maintain the shut-off valve, especially the shut-off valve with a high switching frequency on the sub-cylinder. Steam leaks soon after the packing is changed, which affects the working environment of the workshop and wastes a lot of steam. After technical exchanges with factory engineers, Rick’s GCV-1R1 bellows-sealed shut-off valve was used, and the shut-off valve on the sub-cylinder was gradually replaced. Now the service life is more than 5 years, and the valve is still flexible. , And more importantly, there has never been a failure of steam leakage, and there is no need for frequent maintenance and replacement of packing.
Therefore, in the long run, it is very economical to use high-quality steam valves because:
- Zero leakage operation
Avoid the waste of “running dripping” that is often overlooked.
Maintenance and replacement of packing firstly wastes a lot of manpower cost, and secondly also consumes a lot of packing.
- Stable operation, no downtime trouble
The stop valve that needs to replace the packing will leak steam again soon after being repaired. If the production line is continuous production, it can only be dealt with when it is shut down. Moreover, serious leakage may cause the production line to stop, and the loss will be difficult to estimate.
As a result, saving 1t of steam is equivalent to reducing 2.7t of carbon dioxide emissions. Make a great contribution to protecting the environment and reducing pollution!
