How does a sampling valves work?
Alfa Laval sampling valves enable the operator to extract a representative portion of the process liquid for analysis to ensure quality control. The valves are operated either by manual handle, by pneumatic actuator, or by a combination of manual handle and pneumatic actuator. For sterile sampling, a hypodermic needle is inserted into a rubber membrane plug to draw the process liquid for evaluation.
