Flush-entry satellite valve with all of ASEPCO’s great innovations!

The ASEPCO Sterillite™(1) valve is a result of our dedication to our customers needs. It was developed to eliminate the dead leg associated with steam ports on closed valves. The ASEPCO Sterillite valve combines a satellite valve that seats on the wall of a larger “host” flush-mounted tank outlet valve. Wherever steam or small volumes of flushing liquids must enter a process system, the Sterillite valve creates a flush entry without a dead leg.

Features & Benefits

  • 1/2 inch in size, and can be machined into the wall of any “host” valve of 1 inch or greater
  • Flush-mounted to the tank, no dead legs or dead spaces
  • Easy to clean and self-draining by design
  • Satellite valve provides steam inlet
  • Satellite valve diaphragm seals flush to ID of main valve body
  • Assembles with a clamp, enabling diaphragm change-outs in under a minute
  • Integral travel stops that never need adjusting
  • Enables quick flush or CIP/SIP while the valve is closed, allowing for down stream sterility prior to product introduction, as well as speeding product changeover
