The Müller Containment Split Butterfly Valve MCV is in two halves: the active and passive disks. The active disk incorporates the mechanical system for locking both halves together and a manual lever or actuator for opening and closing the valve. The active half of the valve is fitted to the vessel filling or emptying nozzle, and the passive half to the intermediate bulk container. The two halves of the butterfly valve (active and passive disks) must be docked together in order to open the valve. The ruggedly constructed and GMP-compliant locking device ensures accurate location and the safe docking when the two halves are connected. When both halves of the valves are locked together, the system is closed to the atmosphere and the valve can then be opened – manually or automatically, whichever way you prefer.
The valve system can be cleaned quickly and simply, thus reducing production line downtime. A valve disk can be replaced in less than two minutes.
