BKG® HyFlex™ Multiport Valves

Distribution of one product stream to multiple strands or merging of multiple streams to one strand. During operation one or more of the outlet valve pistons are enabled or disabled providing the correct structure to enter the downstream components.


  • Flexible in construction (diversion into 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 strands possible)
  • Product connections according to DIN or ANSI can be directly integrated into the valve
  • Designed according to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EG and incorporates all safety standards
  • Elimination of dead spaces prohibits the polymer from degrading and causing product defects
  • System can be integrated into the line control panel (optional cyclical movement of the valve pistons to avoid switching in cases of minimal operational changes)
  • Minimal maintenance required since no seals are required


  • High energy efficiency owing to internal heating and insulation of the main components (no subsequent insulation necessary)
  • Compact design
  • Seamless transitions and channels
  • No welded construction
  • Optional heating with steam, oil or electric heating
