Pentair Südmo’s TankTop assembly offers a proven simple and reliable compact tank top system that allows the addition and removal of gases and CIP cleaning fluid using one process connection.
Operating a tank in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries requires adherence to process, safety and hygiene standards. One of the process related challenges comes when adding or removing carbon dioxide, fermentation gases or nitrogen blanketing while ensuring optimal cleaning. The tank must also be protected from damage caused by overpressure or vacuum. Pentair Südmo’s TankTop fitting offers a proven simple and reliable compact system that allows the addition and removal of gases and CIP cleaning fluid using one process connection. TankTop fittings, up to a certain diameter, can have the safety valve directly connected to the unit to protect against overpressure and the vacuum valve directly connected to protect against vacuum. This option, in many applications, eliminates the expense of a tank domeplate. In addition, optimal cleaning of the complete system and the additional safety fittings is assured. Correctly designing the process for the air cleaning combination depends on many factors that must be calculated for each tank or application. Information such as diameter, compressive strength and process parameters must be clearly specified in advance. Customers can use the detailed form on page four to provide the needed information.
