European Facility Improves Process Equipment Manufacturing Capability
SPX Flow’s new facility in central Europe manufactures hygienic valves, a range of sanitary plate heat exchangers and homogenizer machinery. The multi-million dollar center also offers dedicated spares and aftermarket support operations.
Hygienic valves manufactured at the approximately 301,000 ft2 (28,000 m2) plant in Bydgoszcz, Poland, include automatic and manual versions for shutoff, flow diversion, throttling control, aseptic and mixproof applications. All are designed to be lightweight, maintenance friendly and cost effective.
Sanitary plate heat exchangers produced at the facility include gasketed, semi-welded and welded configurations in several plate materials, corrugation patterns, plate heights, gasket types and connection options.
Homogenizer machinery is manufactured with a selection of materials and homogenization valve types available to ensure an even dispersion characteristic across a range of applications and processing conditions, including abrasive, sterile and highly viscous fluids.
