Evoguard GmbH, a subsidiary of Krones AG, has manufactured 250,000 valves since 2010.

“The high quality assured by the production process, the energy savings achievable, and the rigorous compliance with safety requirements in the development stage and in the process, have proved thoroughly persuasive to the decision-makers responsible in the food and beverage industries, and at dairy firms as well,” says Martin Zierer, Managing Director of Evoguard GmbH. “The more than 1,000 users in 100 different countries is also evidence of the widespread acceptance of these valves on the market.”

Evoguard’s valve technology constitutes a modularized array of components that enable the right model to be selected for each point in the production line. For both the hygienic valves and its aseptic counterparts, high-performance seal systems that are developed in-house are used to comply with all the requisite stipulations. In addition, the parts can be precisely traced and identified. The Evoguard range of aseptic valves is ideal for the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors, the company says.

In 2010, Krones AG premiered its own valves that were manufactured in-house. In 2014, the Valve Technology Division was hived off to form Evoguard GmbH, located at Nittenau in the Upper Palatinate in Germany. Now, the company produces valves and pumps, and has recently started manufacturing tank safeguarding and cleaning systems.
