The latest tank covers from Alfa Laval aim to provide ease and convenience in a hygienic manner when it comes to visual inspection or entry to tank interiors.

The covers meet most requirements in the dairy, food and beverage industries, and securely fit the opening of high, low or non-pressure tanks, both above and below the liquid level.

Alfa Laval offers a range of 3A approved inspection and personnel entry ports with a variety of surface finishes and seal materials.

Two tank cover models are available – the LKD and LKDC tanks covers. The LKD is an oval-shaped, stainless steel cover that can be turned into the tank for inspection purposes, and can also be removed at the double hinge or swung out of the tank for personnel entry. It is not affected by positive or negative pressure in the tank.

The LKDC tank cover is circular and also stainless steel, and is supplied with a replaceable, self-sealing double lip seal to prevent fluids from spraying out, such as during CIP cleaning and similar processes.

The Alfa Laval tank covers are supplied through the company’s Australian-based site in Huntingwood, Victoria.
