Mixproof Valve Manifolds

We offer multi-function automated mixproof valve manifold systems and auxiliary components which allow you to simultaneously route multiple ingredients, and or cleaning streams to multiple destinations through a single assembly. This high-performance technology eliminates the risk of cross-contamination and protects against harmful microorganisms, while maximizing plant production time, safety, and flexibility, making them ideal for large-scale food and beverage production and other aseptic facilities.

  • Applications
  • Benefits
  • Safety

Mixproof valves are an optimal fit for many applications such as:

  • Fluid tanker receiving and cleaning
  • Transfer to storage
  • Raw and pasteurized product routing
  • Fluid-based to sugar-based liquids routing
  • Product types from wine to baby food
  • High-temperature, short-time systems
  • Extended shelf life systems
  • Hygienic, ultra-clean and aseptic systems
  • Tank and line Clean-In-Place (CIP) systems

This Technology:

  • Reduces plant energy consumption
  • Allows for shorter fluid paths and smaller equipment footprints
  • Requires fewer connections between pipes which reduces the risk of leaks
  • Reduces installation costs due to simpler layouts
  • Offer spillage-free operation
  • Allows product to be flushed to the destination thereby reducing waste

Maximizing Production

Widely billed as the “traffic cops” of the processing industry, mixproof valve manifolds efficiently route multiple ingredients/products and cleaning streams through the process lines without the risk of cross contamination. These computer-controlled automated routing systems allow processors to move from batch production to continuous processing by providing the ability to simultaneously fill one tank while emptying another, and cleaning a third. Dozens of valves can be operated through a single valve manifold, maximizing production time and preventing downtime.

Cost Savings

Mixproof valve technology can replace two or more valves of other types. This reduces maintenance costs and space requirements. Mixproof valves increase production time without the need for adding additional processing or filling equipment.


This technology offers the ultimate in flexibility. Each system is custom-designed for your unique requirements. Our automated skidded systems can be designed to fit into small footprints and integrated into existing systems.


Mixproof valves are valued for their long product life span, availability of spare parts and ease of maintenance. Total cost of ownership is lower than traditional valves and the systems are easy to access and maintain.

Unlike traditional valves, mixproof valves have two independent plug seals which enable fluid separation. If there is a leak, the valves force the liquid into a separate leakage chamber allowing for easy detection and preventing cross contamination. The automated routing ensures incompatible “enemy” fluids do not come into contact during changeovers and there is no risk of mixing fluids in the event of a pressure shock.

Automated valves eliminate the need for swing connections and facilitate faster changeovers, easier product to product transition, and faster product to CIP transitions. Eliminating swing connections also eliminates drip points and minimizes product waste. Correspondingly, automation reduces production accidents, safety hazards and human error, improving the safety of the plant and the product. Automated mixproof valve manifolds protect product integrity and allow you to track and record your regulatory compliance.
