GEA Tuchenhagen PMO ValveGEA Tuchenhagen announces the release of the next generation of PMO valves: the 24/7 PMO Valve 2.0. With all of the benefits of the original 24/7 PMO Valve, the 2.0 version now comes in a smaller package, meaning superior technology that is lighter and provides even greater cost- and production-efficiencies.

When the 24/7 PMO Valve 2.0 is incorporated into a cheese process piping system there is no need to shut down the production system in order to clean the valve seats, leading to 24/7 production.

As proven by rigorous testing in a third party United States lab, regardless of whether there are seat seals in the valve or not, or if the seat seals are damaged, there is no chance of CIP ever contaminating the product. This is because the smart design of the PMO 2.0 valve generates a natural vacuum in the vent cavity, as well as ensures that no CIP liquid will ever impinge on the opposite seat during seat lift cleaning. In addition, ALL valve seats are position detectable — meaning it is able to be fully monitored for maximum safety.

The new, compact design of the PMO 2.0 valve provides superior value with an up to 45% reduction in CIP losses during seat lifting. It is safe with a proven design and performance, and, due to an uncluttered cavity, completely hygienic and easy to clean. In addition, because the valve is lighter with fewer gaskets, it is easy to maintain. And this valve is intelligent when paired with the fully automatic setup of our T.VIS A-8 control module, which never needs to be opened in order to calibrate the valve.

Advantages at a glance:

• Always safe: proven design and performance with all valve seats detectable
• Compact: 2.0 valves are lighter and smaller
• Hygienic: completely uncluttered cavity and easy to clean
• Intelligent: fully automated setup, no need to ever open out T.VIS A-8 control module
• Easy to maintain: lighter with fewer gaskets and no complex spare parts
• Superior value: faster ROI
