Baby Food Giant Turns to RENCOR for Tough Valve

steam control valve
The second largest baby food producer in the US needed a tough control valve to cook baby food. The valve was to be installed in a clean area where it would be washed with high-pressure hot water and harsh detergents several times a day.

The application was to accurately control steam so that precise temperature control could be maintained to properly cook the baby food. Accuracy is critical because of food safety and product quality.

RENCOR chose a Samson all 316 stainless steel globe control valve, with 316 stainless steel actuator and 316 stainless steel positioner as the solution. Samson control valves are known for their accurate steam control, are available in all-stainless construction, and are well suited for these types of applications.

RENCOR delivered the valve and all components just two weeks after receipt of order.
