Automation solutions in the chemical industry with technology from Festo

Open- and closed-loop control of fluid flows

Products in chemical plants must meet extremely high requirements:

  • Sturdy design
  • Appropriate materials
  • Explosion-proof designs
  • Sealing
  • Ease of cleaning
  • Pressure and vacuum resistance
  • Temperature resistance
  • Resistance to extreme temperature
  • Weather resistance
  • Reliability

Automation solutions from Festo:

  • Air preparation for use in explosive and non-explosive areas
  • Solenoid valves with explosion-proof coils mounted directly on the actuator (NAMUR interface) in explosive areas
  • Solenoid valves in explosion-proof cabinets with tubing to the actuators
  • Solenoid valves in a control cabinet outside the explosive area with tubing to the drives
  • Intrinsically safe valve terminals in a control cabinet inside the explosive area for activating groups of actuators
  • Valve terminals outside the explosive area for activating groups of actuators
  • I/O remote systems outside the explosive area for recording and outputting electrical signals
  • Quarter-turn and linear actuators with and without sensor boxes outside the explosive area for opening/closing process valves
  • Quarter-turn and linear actuators with and without sensor boxes inside the explosive area for opening/closing process valves

 

Use of single-acting actuators for the safety setting of the valves and fittings (e.g. "normally closed") if the power supply fails
