Advantages of the Matcon manual cone valve over a butterfly valve
Four reasons not to use a butterfly valve for manufacturing spice mixes. Disadvantages of the Butterfly Valve; Advantages of the manual cone valve. In the food industry, quality control is paramount. This is particularly relevant in manufacturing dry spices, herbs, and seasoning products. Such dry mixes can have varying bulk densities and particle sizes, and therefore be prone to mix segregation after blending if they are not handled correctly. With the added complications of cleaning, cross-contamination, and the need to meet food hygiene standards such as FDA requirements, spice and seasoning mixing is a complex process that needs the right methods and equipment. What is a Butterfly Valve? Often used in food manufacture, the butterfly valve is used to control the flow of materials. The valve functions by completely opening or shutting as the disc rotates up to 90 degrees. In the case of spice and seasoning blends, it is commonly used to regulate the flow of dry materials, often from one process to another, such as after blending into a packing machine. Disadvantages of the Butterfly Valve # Not designed
