With over 30 years of experience and installed product base in the sugar industry, Bray has specifically designed unique and innovative solutions that provide dependable and continuous service in the harshest of sugar & ethanol processes.
High Performance Butterfly Valves
Butterfly valve solutions designed and optimized for sugar industry applications featuring ZERO leakage, ease of field maintainance, low cost automation and extended service life.
Continuous service and up-time are critical to the profitability of the sugar production and Sugar refining industry. Bray understands that these highly automated plants require uninterrupted service for as long as 365 days per year, placing enormous demands on valves, actuators and controls that must operate in the harshest conditions.
Trust Bray to deliver dependable high-cycle operation in the harshest of sugar processing operations.
With over 30+ years of experience and a global install base in the sugar industry, you can trust Bray for high performance valve and automation solutions.
Sugar processing conditions require valves capable of handling steam, caustic chemicals, dirty/viscous media, solid sugar crystals and erosive slurry found in sugar processing. Bray valve solutions for sugar processing are manufactured to ensure high
reliability, uptime, and long service life throughout the Sugar production season. Our valves are designed for the entire sugar production process starting with juice extraction, filtration, clarificaiton, evaporation, crystallization, centrifuge and
refining processes. Bray valves are optomized for the entire sugar production process.
Bray Butterfly valves for
Bray’s resilient seated butterfly valve are uniquely designed and suited for reliable performance in various parts of the sugar refinery requiring ZERO leakage at high cycle services such as juice heaters, vacuum pans and centrifuges.
performance valve are specially designed for the Sugar Industry. These valves are structured to handle a wide range of media from slurry mud, to high temperature condensate and steam isolation & control applications. Bray Butterfly Valves ensure ZERO
leakage performance, ease of field maintaince and low cost automation.
In addition to standard knife gate valve solutions Bray has designed unique solutions to enhance the service life of valves in tough sugar industry applications. Options include purge ports which can be used to flush media in applications such as receivers/crystallizers where the media tends to dewater, solidify or build up in the seat area. Deflection cones on Bray knife gate valves can be used to redirect flow of suspended solid sugar crystals away from the seat towards the center of the bore. This extends service life of the seat and gate, ensuring uninterrupted service for the sugar Industry production season.
Bray Series S19/S19L segmented control valves are an ideal solution for precise control and dependable on/off service in the abrasive slurry control and clean media applications in sugar procesing. Some of the key features include drive train protection to prevent ingress of media into the stem area to prevent jamming issues, seat and segment design provides self cleaning action preventing media build up in the valve internals, abrasion resistant coatings and liner to handle high velocity and highest level of abrasion in the sugar industry and on top of all these key features the valves are field maintainable with minimal spare parts.
Bray also manufacturs a wide array of Vball valves including 1 piece, 2 piece and 3 piece valves including flanged, threaded, and socket weld options for characterized control applications for water, steam and other process support in sugar processing and Sugar refining applications.
