V2B Gaskets

V2B Vent and Vacuum Breaker Gasket

The Vent and Vacuum Breaker Gasket

The SPS Canada V2B Gasket offers an additional answer for vacuum and pressure relief for pharmaceutical and food/beverage processing tank venting when airborne particulate removal is required. Using a 200 mesh screen combined with a 14 mesh screen of scintered construction, SPS Canada has created a cost effective alternative to expensive vacuum breakers and venting systems. The V2B System is connected using a standard sanitary clamp to a sanitary tank port, the same way a standard vacuum breaker in installed. Installation can be horizontal, vertical or in single or multiple port configurations (i.e. manifolds) without special fabrication or expensive tooling. The V2B screen will fit perfectly into the ID of a sanitary pipe and can be used for inflow fluid conditioning filtration.

Provide Air Flow Without Contamination

A key benefit of the V2B Gasket is it’s prevention from most atmospheric and environmental contamination customarily found with other venting systems. Because the V2B Gasket can provide unrestricted air flow with ultra fine filtration, you can feel secure in knowing the hygienic condition of the tank contents remain protected. With regular cleaning and maintenance, the V2B Gasket is a cost effective and incredibly simple way to provide contaminate free air flow to any tank system.

When the need to eliminate particulates are critical to the CGMP in sterile fill products, upstream or downstream particulate removal, or filtration, you can find additional benefits with the VB Gasket.

As an In-line pipe gasket, the VB Gasket offers the benefits of both a sock gasket and a fine mesh screen gasket, VB Gasket's sintered screen systemprovides the additional strength a fine mesh or micron screen can sometimes lack with the additional capacity for high quantity particulate removal.

Create Greater Air Flow with the V2B Gasket

The V2B Gasket creates the opportunity to increase the flow of air (or decrease if necessary). By using a concentric reducer as illustrated below, you can provide a 2 inch pipe flange 4 inches of air flow area. And by utilizing one or multiple 2-way and/or 4-way sanitary pipe adapters, you can exponentially increase the air flow in and out of your tank system while still protecting the system from atmospheric debris.

The V2B Gasket: An Excellent Addition to the Fluid Conditioning Program.

V2B Vent and Vacuum Breaker Gasket

Components available in electro polish finish.

Other mesh and micron sizes are available.

Consult SPS with special requirements.

NOTE: The V2B Gasket is not intended for use in every existing vacuum breaker and venting situation. SPS recommends testing to determ i ne the individual system's needs and requirements and its compatibility with the V2B Gasket. SPS suggests a regular cleaning cycle in order to maintain consistent water and air flow through the V2B Gasket. Due to the inherent risks in vertical silo and tank venting, SPS does not recommend the V2B Gasket without the use of traditional vacuum breakers.
