Success story "Complex, but not complicated"
Success story "Complex, but not complicated" Fully automated filling and hygienic packaging

For machine builders and operators, handling bulk materials can often be full of surprises. This isn’t the case at Burgener AG. The Swiss company created a complex dosing and packaging line for automatically filling pharmaceutical additives. Automation technology from Festo, such as hygienic design cylinders, pneumatic axes, valve terminals, service units and sensors, make for a straightforward system.

Automation solutions for wastewater treatment with Nereda® technology
Automation solutions for wastewater treatment with Nereda® technology Reliable and fast

Nereda technology is an innovative, sustainable and cost-effective biological wastewater treatment. The award-winning technology is up to four times smaller than conventional plants and uses the unique features of aerobic granular biomass with excellent settling properties. Festo provides support right from the plant planning phase, and uses pneumatic automation to ensure an exact process sequence.

Automation solutions for flotation cells
Automation solutions for flotation cells High control precision

The excellent control precision of the dart valves is the key to achieving optimum results in the flotation process. This ensures a constant froth level – and thus a higher yield. Festo offers three options for the automation of flotation cells in order to optimally separate fine ore and high-quality sulphide ores such as copper, copper-molybdenum and platinum group metals from the gangue.

Fibre balls in the fight against micropollutants
Fibre balls in the fight against micropollutants Festo is automating the world’s first plant featuring Fuzzy Filters® for removing microplastics and medication

Each year, 8,000 tons of pharmaceutical products and 10 tons of microplastics alone end up in Germany’s largest river, the Rhine. Conventional wastewater treatment plants will always struggle to deal with such large quantities of micropollutants. That is why the town of Barntrup in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia added a purification stage for micropollutants to its wastewater treatment plant – a world first using Fuzzy Filters® from Bosman and automated with pneumatics from Festo.

Actuator solutions for controlling dampers
Actuator solutions for controlling dampers

Our drive solutions for controlling dampers for all industrial sectors in which processes are operated with gas, oil, coal or biomass, and the air supply must be extremely precisely and reliably controlled.

Animation Energy efficiency module MSE6-C2M

MSE6-C2M constantly monitors compressed air consumption, shuts off the compressed air supply after production has stopped for a certain amount of time and prevents the system pressure from falling below a specific stand-by pressure level.

Linear actuator DFPC
Linear actuator DFPC Sturdy and durable!

Preconfigured from stock or individually configured? The new,

double-acting linear actuator DFPC can be both. It has been

specially designed for actuating process valves such as gate valves

or knife-gate valves, pinch valves or valve bodies without housing.

Perfect, for example, for the requirements in water and wastewater

treatment, the mining industry, power stations as well as

the paper, pulp and steel industries.

White paper: Minimizing risk SIL for the chemical industry
White paper: Minimizing risk SIL for the chemical industry

This white paper has the following aims:

  • What is SIL, why is the topic relevant for plant operators, and what are the common misunderstandings?
  • What do certificates mean and how do you read them correctly?
  • To what extent do durable components offer a helpful advantage?
White Paper: Digitalisation – new opportunities to optimise systems in the process industry
White Paper: Digitalisation – new opportunities to optimise systems in the process industry

This white paper covers the following topics:

  • Digitalisation as an opportunity in the process industry
  • How decoupling software and hardware opens up completely new opportunities for already established technologies, based on the example of the Festo Motion Terminal
  • Why do manufacturers, OEMs and system operators obtain very tangible benefits from analysing the data sent via the IoT gateway to the cloud – and what does this mean for their business?
Success story "The cleanroom" - Rotan
Success story "The cleanroom" - Rotan Cleaning mobile production equipment

In the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, cleanliness is of the utmostimportance. Production equipment can only be reused if it is cleaned. A new system from ROTAN GmbH shows how this can be done reliably. The Festo solution comprising valve terminals and stainless steel components ensures operational reliability and a long service life.

Success story "Setting standards" - Biotest
Success story "Setting standards" - Biotest Standardised automation in blood plasma fractionation

Blood plasma is an indispensable resource in the production of life-saving medicines. It is in high demand on global markets. To make more efficient use of this valuable commodity, Biotest AG developed a new large-scale plant for plasma fractionation, with which it is possible to obtain five instead of the previous three products from a litre of blood plasma. Standardised components from Festo simplify installation and maintenance.

These include a NAMUR interface to VDI/VDE 3847, hard-anodised end caps, blow-outproof adjusting screws for the end position, shaft centring ring and captive spring cartridges that are free of non-ferrous metals.

Pinch valve for heavy-duty applications
Pinch valve for heavy-duty applications Extremely low wear!

The heavy-duty pinch valve is ideal for use with abrasive or corrosive

fl uids, pastes, pulps, powders, or media with a high solids content.

Its high performance, extremely low wear, and long service life in

open and close mode as well as in proportional control applications

make it very suitable for use in mineral processing, in the cement

and construction industry, in iron and steel production, in metallurgy

and foundries, or in aluminium production.

Venting solution for oil and gas installations CR-AMHT
Venting solution for oil and gas installations CR-AMHT Reliable air exhaustion!

Single acting actuators are used wherever a process valve has to be
driven – the air exhaustion may give rise to difficulties that damages
and limit the reliability of the actuator. The carefully thought-out
design of the CR-AMHT makes it possible to avoid these problems.
The Venting Solution CR-AMTH is used to create a reliable way of
exhausting for especially single acting but also double acting
actuators on process valves located in the field.

The dock “thinks” for itself
The dock “thinks” for itself Decentralised Control in Bulk Material Handling

The world of bulk material handling seems easy at first glance: moving, filling, delivering. The art of dealing with a variety of different materials, however, lies in the details, such as the docking and undocking of containers at weighing stations. In the process, crosscontaminations

and the release of dusts can occur. AZO CleanDock prevents this

problem. Its latest generation can do even more: it “thinks” for itself. Directly attached to the dock, the integrated controller CEC of the modular electrical terminal CPX from Festo ensures additional process security and shortened commissioning times.
