The newly released Global Hygienic Blow-Through Airlock (GHB) is a USDA Dairy Certified dismountable airlock that is ideal for applications where dry raw or finished products are being handled in the process and where inspection or system clean-out are required.
Because the GHB is designed for high process rates it possesses a number of features suited for processes that have a higher sanitary requirement.
The GHB is a dismountable round inlet, blow through, convey line outlet rotary valve that incorporates seals and product contact surfaces that meet food safety requirements. Endplates and rotor can be disassembled and removed from the valve housing for cleaning. The endplates have specifically been designed for access to the seal area for cleaning or seal replacement. Rotor removal and reassembly is completed with a few simple steps in minutes.
Each GHB is equipped with a range of features that include a design for NFPA 69 blocking valve requirement, 32 Ra surface finish on all wetted and primary food contact surfaces, and a casting exterior surface that is free of all pits and porosity, providing an easy to wipe and washdown valve exterior.
With a number of features designed to meet hygienic process requirements the new GHB serves as an integral component to systems designed for sanitary applications.
