Mucon Oyster Hygienic Butterfly Valve – Bolted Body

The Mucon Oyster™ Hygienic Butterfly Valve – Bolted Body is the preferred solution for mounting between flanges and when frequent strip down for cleaning is not required.

Overview

The Mucon range of stainless steel hygienic Butterfly valves offers an outstanding technological solution to the handling and control of powders, granules, and liquids. The Mucon range is manufactured to exacting tolerances and finished to the highest, most stringent hygienic requirements.

Mucon stainless steel hygienic Butterfly valves have been specifically designed for use in the Pharmaceutical, Food and Dairy sectors, where the utmost level of hygiene is paramount.

Its crevice-free, smooth bore design allows the end user to maintain high levels of hygiene reducing the risks of product contamination or microbiological growth.

In this version, the valve body is assembled using stainless steel fasteners that ensure a rigid and robust construction. Fasteners are kept to a minimum to ease disassembly for cleaning, but for applications requiring regular cleaning we recommend the Mucon Oyster™ Compact series fitted with the patented clamshell body clamp.
