DMN-Westinghouse introduces a new rotary valve for the food processing industry that is intended for dosing dry products and ingredients.

With the new MZC-II rotary valve, DMN-Westinghouse is setting a new standard in terms of functionality, hygiene, safety, and maintenance. The company introduced the current MZC rotary valve 25 years ago, which has played an important role in increasing food safety in production processes of companies in the food and dairy segment, among others. With the introduction of this new rotary valve--which can be opened on two sides and thus creates optimal conditions for hygiene, safety, functionality, and maintenance—the company continues a tradition of products that are characterized by high-quality engineering, durability, and continuity.

Due to increasingly strict requirements in the field of hygiene and efficiency, DMN-Westinghouse decided to improve the MZC rotary valve.

Risks of Downtime Significantly Reduced

Due to its double-sided opening, the new rotary valve is so intuitive to use, every professional on the workplace can use, open, clean, and maintain it without detailed knowledge. No specific instruction or knowledge is required to operate the rotary valve, and optimal access to the drive end also allows extra thorough user-friendly cleaning.

“The MZC-II rotary valve not only contributes to improving hygiene conditions, but also improves efficiency,” said Wim Korndorffer, CEO of DMN-Westinghouse. “This significantly reduces the risk of downtime due to damage and adjustment problems. Because we have taken significant steps in the field of hygiene, safety, and efficiency during the periodic cleaning and maintenance activities, we can make an important contribution to the further improvement of productivity, safety, and quality for our customers in the dry bulk industry, from pharmaceuticals to dairy and from paint to cosmetics. Long-term tests under various conditions in a professional and critical production environment--including a pilot with an important customer--have proven this. Therefore, we are very excited that we can now launch this product.”
