Broad Selection of Stainless Steel Valves & Actuators
Sanitary valves control process flow during production and heat transfer. Steel & O’Brien carries a vast assortment of stainless steel valve and actuator types to meet sanitary and high purity applications. We offer numerous styles of valves available with a range of connection and seal types. They can be built from 304 or 316L stainless steel in sizes from 1/2” up to 6”. Our actuators, valves and accessories feature quality surface finishes.
Steel & O’Brien offers the following types of sanitary valves:
Ball valves utilize a ball to restrict flow by sealing around matching seats; they are ideal for use in situations where complete shut-off is required.
Butterfly valves, ideal for food and beverage applications, reliably handle high-viscous products, high temperatures and corrosive environments.
Check valves are fully automatic, and allow product flow in one direction, while preventing flow in the other.
Vacuum breaker vent valves prevent the formation of a vacuum in the process line.
Sample valves allow a sample of product to be taken directly from process lines.
Pressure relief valves permit manual pressure control with a metal-to-metal seat.
TOP-FLO® plug valves are excellent sanitary devices with minimal pressure drops. The valve features a tapered core assembly, which allows easy cleaning while eliminating crevices that can lead to contamination.
Flow control valves are normally fitted with actuators and are used to regulate the flow rate and pressure of liquids or gases through a pipeline. Flow control valves are essential for optimizing system performance, relying on a flow passage or port with a variable flow area.
