Automating systems under extreme conditions
The size of the systems means that extremely long supply lines for power and signal carriers are often required. Adverse environmental conditions in metal extraction and mining require the technology used to have special properties.
Automation solutions from Festo:
- Explosion-proof designs
- Ease of cleaning
- Pressure and vacuum resistance
- Temperature resistance
- Weather resistance
- Service life and reliability
- Operational/process reliability
- Resistance/sturdiness/overload protection
- Resistance to extreme contamination influences
- Cleanliness and availability of process medium (particularly in mining)
In some cases, standard products from Festo can be used for these pneumatic solutions.
