The Homogenising Pressure Control Valve or Nanovalve

pipes and pressure valves

Ever wondered how dairy products are machine homogenised? The homogenising pressure control valve or nanovalve can homogenise dairy products, as well as food, beverages, and even chemical emulsion processes. Nanovalves use pressure to get the best of and improve product viscosity and stability. It also minimises running costs.

Generally, nanovalves are high-efficiency homogenising pressure control valves designed for high flow rates and pressures that can measure up to 240 bar. 

The designs of nanovalves

Nanovalves have been developed to achieve optimised performance at very low working pressures when compared to conventional pressure control valves and other pneumatic valves. The concept for nanovalves is based on specific homogenising valve profiles. The valve contains an optimised working gap with a sharp edge for minimal travel distance between the high-pressure zone and high-velocity zone. This, therefore, releases product particles with the most effective fluid-dynamic energy generated by high turbulence, localised cavitation, and shear wall impacts.

Thus, the technology of nanovalves makes it suitable for different kinds of homogenising applications for food and beverages, and most especially dairy products such as milk, yoghurt, cream, and milk with flavours.

Reimagining liquids with improved nanovalves

Many people do not realise the large number of food products that need homogenisation as part of the manufacturing process to make these foods more compatible with daily life consumption. Stabilisation and longer shelf life have always been part of the highest priorities in many different processing industries. In the modern world today, as lifestyles continue to rapidly change, improving the technology behind nanovalves is becoming more valued as food becomes more complex to manufacture.

The use of high pressure

High-pressure homogenisation is popularly known in dairy, liquid food, and beverage applications. This is the critical process for reducing particles to the required size to achieve the same standard dimension and, eventually, the even distribution of particles.

So, when nanovalves utilise improved high-pressure in its technology, this creates a stable emulsion with enhanced shelf life, viscosity, colour, and taste in the final product, and provides a starting point for further processes for other production. 

Nanovalves can even use particle micronisation as an essential role for pharmaceutical applications for the production of personal care products, biotech industries, biological cell lysis, intravenous emulsions, and inhalation products.
