Explore our different tank-bottom valves on this page.
Tank-bottom valves: Optimal emptying, cleaning and sterilization Tank bottom valves are often displayed as drain valves at the bottom of the tank (at the lowest point of the tank bottom). This allows the tank to be emptied, cleaned and sterilized optimally. They can also be used in many different types of filling equipment in both the pharmaceutical and food industries to ensure aseptic conditions from storage tank to packaging.
A tank bottom valve is used in WFI and PW systems, biotechnological processes, food production, beverage production, pharmaceutical manufacturing, cosmetic manufacturing, vaccine production facilities, fermentation applications, and injection solution manufacturing, among others.
The tank bottom valves can be combined with the most high-tech equipment for handling delicate pharmaceutical products and innovative biotechnological products. They are versatile and suitable for handling several types of media and handle both clear thin liquids but also liquids with high viscosity. From liquid to semi-solid cosmetics, from pastes to powders that are difficult to spread, from waxes to flammable substances. For example, they are compatible with:
- Fats and oil
- Fruit and vegetable juices
- Beer and cider
- Tea and coffee
- Wine and spirits
- Soft drinks
- Milk and cream
- Cleaning agents

For demanding tasks and aggressive media, it is important that your equipment is in perfect working order. That is why all tank bottom valves from Alflow are type approved. In addition, they meet industrial requirements in relation to use, hygiene, environment and serviceability. In this way, we ensure that it is easy to service our tank equipment. This means that you are guaranteed an investment in a product that will last far into the future.
You can choose to have the tank-bottom valve supplied with the applicable certificates suitable for several industries. Among other things, you can experience certificates such as:
- USP Class VI
At Alflow, we also want to supply the best valves on the market. You can see this, among other things, in the fact that our models are extremely durable since they are produced in the most suitable material with regard to the possible uses. If you buy valves from Alflow, you get a long-lasting solution.
We have a wide selection of tank-bottom valves – including membrane tank-bottom valves, aseptic tank-bottom membrane valves, single-seat tank-bottom valves, mixproof bottom valves and more.
Our tank-bottom valves are available as aseptic tank-bottom diaphragm seat valves in high sanitary standards designed for sanitary processes. They are manufactured in a 100% drainable design, and there are thus no dead zones in the bottom of the tank. They are also available in a design for mounting on the tank wall for sampling.
When the valve is welded in place, it becomes an integral part of the tank bottom and can be equipped with different outlets and plugs. A CIP/SIP valve can also be welded to the tank-outlet valve to ensure clean/sterile downstream piping before emptying the tank begins.
We also have sanitary single-seat valves and mixproof valves for installation in the tank bottom. The valves are of a modern and compact design and machined from bar steel and always in stainless-steel quality. They are designed for the strictest hygiene requirements, and maintenance is easy without the use of special tools.
The valves are also available with steam barrier, which is recommended for applications with very high hygiene, such as sterile, aseptic treatment or sterilization at high temperature. With its location between the valve body and the pneumatic actuator, the steam barrier enables a safe separation between the product inside the valve and the external environment.
Did you know that we also offer a thorough service on valves? With a tank bottom valve from our range, your pipe systems are therefore guaranteed reliable operation and tightness in both directions – both at high and low temperatures.
