Food & Beverage

For more than 75 years, DFT® has been manufacturing check valves for a wide range of applications, including sanitary applications, within the food and beverage industry. Due to the stringent regulatory compliance required for food processing, every component within the process must be carefully evaluated to ensure it is safe to use in the production of items for human consumption. The safest valves have contaminant-resistant properties that meet or exceed 3A standards designed to guide manufacturers in hygienic production of food-safe components that conform to the USDA, FDA, and state regulations. One of DFT®’s product lines is the DSV® Sanitary Check Valve that meets 3A Sanitary Standard 58-02.

Industry Challenges

In the U.S., what is purchased for consumption is highly regulated for safety. Food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and the ingredients must be safe for consumption, and every part of the production process that has any chance of coming in contact with the food must also be FDA compliant.

Finding the proper valve for each application of an already complex industry can be challenging. Elements that could be exposed to the food or drink, the temperature and humidity that must be maintained, the pressure used, the viscosity of the product, and materials that could cause corrosion are all key factors in choosing the correct valve for your particular application. Picking a supplier who can guide your choices for safe, reliable, and hygienic components can save you time and money by streamlining production processes and avoiding ruined batches.
