How to maintain the fermenter valve?

With the development process of biotechnology, fermenters are becoming more and more important. The fermenter valve is an integral part of the fermenter equipment and is a key part of the equipment.

Maintenance precautions for fermenter valves
1. Sealing surface: Check the sealing surface for cracks, scars and other problems.
2. Surface: check whether the surface of the valve body is broken, if there is damage should be repaired in time.
3. Packing: check whether the packing is pressed, if there is loose application of raw materials to adjust to the pressure.
4. Lubrication system: check whether the lubricant is normal, if it is not normal, it should be added or replaced in time.
