Dixon exhibiting at PPMA Show
Dixon has announced that it will exhibiting again at this year’s PPMA Show (26-28 September) at The National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, UK.
Dixon offers FDA and 3A approved stainless steel fittings, unions, tube, pumps and valves for the food, dairy, beverage and brewery industries. The company will be showcasing its range of hygienic fittings and actuated valves along with a carousel of hygienic hoses assemblies offering odourless and taste free properties suitable for liquid foodstuffs.
Dixon’s extensive hygienic hose range now includes Heat Traced, Hot Water Thermal and Duplex hose assemblies as part of the standard range, along with a range of rubber, silicone, PVC and PTFE hose assemblies which can be custom made to exact requirements with accessories including wash down guns and steam lances.
The new compact impact resistant sight glass is also going to be available to see. This new sight glass is used widely in the food, dairy and beverage hygienic processes to view products and fluids. This design is ideal for hoses and high traffic areas.
Also on the stand will be the Dixon Breakaway Check Valve which is an innovative solution that is designed to eliminate product loss too. It incorporates the Breakaway Coupling and a Hygienic Check Valve. It acts as a single unit that has a diverted breaking point which will break at a determined break-load. The check valve will then close, protecting the loading bay pipe system and avoiding product spillage.
With an on-site valve actuation shop, 3D design, full technical and sales back-up and BSI approved manufacturing and engineering department, Dixon can design and produce individual bespoke valves and fabricated configurations to quickly and efficiently solve customer problems. This has included pump carts, bespoke valve configurations and innovative display sight glasses used on beer pumps to infuse product.
Dixon’s hygienic product manager will also be available on the stand each day to talk about correct valve selection, eliminating contamination risk, new innovations in valve technology and the hose management programme Dixon-Hose Connect.
Dixon-Hose Connect is a secure, user friendly web based app. The source allows customers to access their Hose Maintenance documentation, including Service History reports, Hose Asset Register via unique tag references and hose identifiers, as well as training videos for their site.
