SOTRALENTZ Packaging launches its first 3’’ conductive butterfly valve PACKAGING

12:36 2011

For the Interpack trade fair, held in Düsseldorf from May 12th to 18th, SOTRALENTZ Packaging launched its first 3’’ conductive butterfly valve. This valve, designed for the storage, transport and handling of viscous or pasty flammable products, completes the existing range of screw-on and weldable 2’’ conductive valves.
These patented valves possess a system connecting the contents of the container to the ground lead using a PEHD conductive gate. They allow the safe handling of flammable products with a flash point lower than 61°C.
With an 80 mm port size, the DN80 3» conductive valve was specifically designed to allow the flow of viscous flammable products, such as paint for the motor industry. The existing 2» conductive valves are only suitable for liquid flammable products.
The DN80 3’’ conductive valve has been approved by:
•the BVT (Bureau de Vérifications Techniques), for the transport of hazardous materials
•the Dekra certification body, for the conductive connection between the product, container and valve.
By launching this new valve, SOTRALENTZ confirms its mastery of conductive industrial packaging manufacturing techniques. Already acknowledged for its conductive IBCs, the Packaging subsidiary is now able to address niche markets by proposing adapted storage, handling and transport solutions for all types of flammable products, whether liquid or viscous.
