Alfa Laval ThinkTop Sensors (V50 & V70)

Oct. 3, 2019
The Alfa Laval ThinkTop revolutionizes valve sensing and control units and has been re-engineered to meet customer needs.

Alfa Laval has unveiled a refreshed, rethought version of the Alfa Laval ThinkTop, the company’s best-selling valve sensing and control unit for hygienic valves used in the dairy, food, beverage, brewery and pharmaceutical industries. The ThinkTop V50 and V70, the second-generation of premium control units, have been re-engineered to meet customer needs while incorporating the latest advances in technology.


Re-engineered to meet customer needs
ThinkTop offers customers fast and intuitive setup and commissioning; enhanced 360-deg. LED visual status indication, a repositioned Gore Vent, a more compact and aesthetic design, burst seat clean functionality, and a QR code for easy online access to support materials and direct support.


Fast and intuitive
The new auto-setup feature offers manufacturers quick, easy commissioning – up to 90% faster than the previous generation. Plus, the live setup feature coupled with true valve recognition ensures the perfect match during any and all setups.


Adaptable and smart
ThinkTop fits on any Alfa Laval valve, making it perfect for all retrofits. What’s more, it is smart. It features 24/7 self-diagnostics, checking, and remedying operations when required, and an enhanced 360-deg. LED visual status indication so that operators can clearly see the valve status no matter where they are on the production floor.


Durable and reliable
ThinkTop is as long-lasting and dependable as the first generation. However, repositioning the Gore Vent makes the ThinkTop more durable and more reliable than before, equalizing the enclosure pressure in the unit while eliminating the risk of water ingress.


Aesthetic design
Highly practical, the minimalist industrial exterior with its strict lines, no cover screws and uncompromising geometry, is 30% more compact than the previous version yet has the same height, making it suitable for tight installations. Inside, one sensor target control board handles all valve functions and communication; no adapter is required.


Burst seat cleaning
Take advantage of the highly effective burst of CIP liquid during the opening moment of seat lift and seat push. These optimized valve activations reduce water consumption during Cleaning-in-Place and save up to 90% in cleaning agent costs.


The ThinkTop V50 and V70 series cover all valve requirements and are selected based on the number of solenoid valves required. The ThinkTop V50 series matches the requirements of the Alfa Laval DV-ST, butterfly, single-seat and double seal valves while the ThinkTop V70 series matches the requirements of all these valves plus Alfa Laval double seat and special valves. In addition, the V50 and V70 meet the protection class IP66, IP67, and IP69K.
