The RotaSafe retrofit kit enables the company's proprietary RotaSafe valve rotor safety system to be applied to Gericke rotary valves currently in operation.


Developed to help food, dairy, chemical, pharmaceutical, and other processors upgrade their contamination control capabilities, the retrofit kit adds an automated monitoring device to rotary valves in service that detects any metal-to-metal contact between the valve rotor and housing and, if detected, instantly shuts down power to the drive motor.

The potential for fine, metal particles to contaminate the products and ingredients is virtually eliminated while the rotor, seals, bearings, and other components are protected from damage.
