SPX Flow, Charlotte, N.C., opened a new facility in central Europe, fitted with advanced manufacturing equipment and a highly trained workforce to ensure components are made to the highest quality standards with streamlined inventory processes.
Hygienic valves manufactured in the new Poland plant include automatic and manual versions for shut off, flow diversion, throttling control, aseptic and mix proof applications. All are designed to be lightweight, and include the DA3+ double seat mix proof with seat lifting, the MS4/MSP4 aseptic series, the SWcip4 and SD4 double seal configurations, the highly versatile SW4 single seat series and advanced CU4 control units.
The new plant will also manufacture a wide range of sanitary plate heat exchangers, including gasketed, semi-welded and welded configurations in a variety of plate materials, corrugation patterns, plate heights, gasket types and connection options. The plant will produce SPX FLOW’s homogenizer machinery with a selection of materials and homogenization valve types for a wide range of applications and processing conditions, including abrasive, sterile and highly viscous fluids.
The European plant represents a multi-million dollar investment for SPX FLOW. Every product that is produced at the new 28,000 m2 facility undergoes multiple quality checks prior to shipment.
The new center also offers dedicated spares and aftermarket support operations. Furthermore, the new plant is located close to major transportation hubs with easy connection to primary carriers to ensure accurate shipping and enable overnight deliveries.
