The food and pharmaceutical industries attach special importance to product purity and cleanliness. That requires accordingly cleaning-friendly components in the process chain. RITAG has designed valve type solutions that have been developed for Clean-In-Place (CIP) cleaning approaches. The EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group) standards were followed. This group of experts has been setting standards in design consultation verification and certification of cleanable components since 1989.
Our RITAG Type HYPOS 100 check valve was the first product developed by our team of engineers for the Clean Service industry sector. The former EHEDG certificate verifieed the proper CIP functionality of the valve.
Based on this experience with the prototype we designed check valves, sampling valves and bottom valves; their distinguishing characteristics are no-dead-space and nearly no gaps, which makes them especially secure and reliable during cleaning.
