Automation solutions in the petrochemical industry with technology from Festo

Ensure that the systems are explosion-proof

Raw materials and intermediate products from crude oil usually form highly explosive mixtures with air. Process reliability and plant availability therefore play an important role in the automation of process valves in the petrochemical industry.

Automation solutions from Festo:

  • Diagnostics module: early detection of deviation from the standard values, e.g. by analysing switching cycles and changes in temperature, pressure, current or voltage
  • Condition monitoring of Festo components and systems: can also be expanded to affiliated third-party products
  • Preventive maintenance, replacement of unreliable parts: avoid downtimes and increase system availability
