Drining water and domestic water
60% more economical? No problem with Festo components, as our pneumatic actuators and other automation solutions vastly increase the efficiency of filter systems in waterworks. Another advantage: The air maximises the operating reliability and minimises maintenance and servicing costs. In addition, unlike electric drives, pneumatics do not need any additional control and monitoring signals such as torque switches, over-temperature and clockwise/anticlockwise rotation.
Advantages of pneumatic actuators for drinking water technology:
- Overload protection
- Withstands continuous loads
- Service and maintenance free
In a medium-sized waterworks, up to 1,000 PLC inputs and outputs can be saved - even more with Festo valve terminal technology including fieldbus interface or integrated PLC systems.
Whether it is a sewage plant, rainwater basin, pumping station or drain system - in tough environments pneumatic actuators for process valves demonstrate excellent load capacity. The components are extremely resistant, even for applications in explosive areas. The process valves are opened and closed safely and smoothly, while the speed can easily be regulated.
Digesting towers, thickeners and sludge treatment systems can be economically fitted with pneumatics. Festo offers the right components - from actuators to valve terminals, including all of the required compressed air preparation and distribution systems.
