Cashco introduces new sanitary vent

As an enhancement to its VCI Model 1088 sanitary blanketing valve, industrial product manufacturer Cashco has introduced a new Model 1100 sanitary vent.

The new sanitary vent is well-suited for applications in the pharmaceutical industry in the production of health care products for both human and animal consumption, as well as the production of processed foods, cosmetics, and specialty chemicals.

Dimity Ankerholz, VP of sales and marketing at Cashco, explains: “The Model 1100 is a stainless steel sanitary vent designed to operate at multiple set points as a breather valve to avoid vacuum or over-pressurisation inside a tank or piping system.”

The unit comes with a true sanitary blanketing connection and is designed so that it can be used with the model 1088 sanitary blanketing valve.

Available in 2”, 3”, 4”, and 6” sizes, the Model 1100 is offered in 316 stainless steel or 304 stainless steel.

The weather screen, which prevents debris from entering the tank, is also constructed of stainless steel.

Pressure set points can range from a minimum of 0.43psi to a maximum of 3.42psi, while the vacuum can range from a minimum set point of 0.069psi to a maximum of 0.385psi, depending on the size of the unit.
