Valve Indication Unit

The Alfa Laval ThinkTop V20 hygienic valve indication unit provides automation, digitalization, and real-time communication.

Alfa Laval Think Top V20

The Alfa ThinkTop V20 hygienic valve indication unit is maintenance-free and does not require manual adjustment or programming. It enables 360-degree LED visual status indication from all directions and also provides control room monitoring of the real-time status of Alfa Laval hygienic valves used across the dairy, food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and other industries.

The ThinkTop V20 is commissioned by simply installing, activating, and deactivating the unit. Sensors automatically recognize the valve type and size, calibrate and record valve opening and closing distances, and complete setup without requiring manual interaction. Replacing or hot swapping the valve top does not disrupt production.

The ThinkTop V20 has a compact, robust design that makes it suitable for tight installations. It is hermetically sealed to ensure reliable readings of the valve position and prevent the risk of water, dust, and other unauthorized access into the unit. Using the point-to-point IO-Link communication protocol allows the connection of sensors to automation systems. IO-Link also makes access to meaningful real-time data easier, improving diagnostics and simplifying configurability and control while supporting Industry 4.0.

“The intuitive ThinkTop V20 is a faster, more intelligent valve indication unit than what is available today,” says Ebbe Bundesen, portfolio manager, valves and automation, Alfa Laval. “It brings reliable process control to a higher level with fast, accurate, intuitive live setup, the convenience of real-time valve position monitoring, and access to real-time and historical data from the control room. Overall, it is an invaluable time- and money-saver considering the efficiency demand factories are facing.”
