Tried and tested solenoid valve technology
The products of the Bayer’s Division Crop Science secure and boost crop yields in more than 120 countries. The new multi-purpose facility built by the company had to meet extremely strict demands on safety and reliability. Inspection cycles had to be significantly reduced, and downtime caused by repairs was to be entirely eliminated in the future. To achieve this, Bayer relied on valve technology from Festo. The facility has now been running smoothly for such a long time that the German Technical Control Board (TÜV) has issued Festo with a certificate for unlimited use of its valves.
Application in the Arctic Circle
Drilling for gas in the Arctic Circle – not an easy job. The climatic conditions are extremely harsh and -60° C is not uncommon. Russian energy conglomerate Gazprom was looking for a partner who could supply actuators and controllers that can withstand these extreme temperatures. The explosion-proof pneumatic actuator and control system GBVA from Festo fulfilled the demanding expectations straightaway and has been in use ever since along numerous pipelines in the far north.
Laboratories in the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food technology industries are increasingly relying on automation for sample preparation. The Modular Sample Processor, a development from the global laboratory equipment manufacturer Anton Paar, is one such solution – and uses electric axes and control systems from Festo.
