March 1, 2012 -- GEA Nu-Con rotary valves have been available to US customers for over 25 years. Our rotary valves are specifically designed to comply with USDA requirements and offer several distinctive features to meet the demanding requirements of the dairy industry.

Tools-free demounting affords the customer a convenient method to remove the rotor from the valve body and features precise rotor alignment to enable easy re-assembly after cleaning or inspection.

To enhance this further, an optional easy-slide system can be supplied which virtually eliminates rotor "droop" and allows unaided operation for maintenance personnel.

An optional 2nd generation Rotor Detection System (RDS Gen2) now features full operation during wet (CIP) cleaning. With the RDS Gen2 system customers can conveniently configure and monitor up to 25 valves via their site SCADA system.

GEA Nu-Con now has a full time product development team who will continue to introduce new features for their entire range of components and this ensures the future support for our customers.
