PA-Toolkit: Library for CODESYS
PA-Toolkit: Library for CODESYS MTP compliant!

With the PA-Toolkit from Festo, implementing the automation logic of process engineering units and modules is really intuitive. You can also use the library for CODESYS to program applications without the need for more in-depth programming expertise. This is ideal for automating modular systems according to the MTP standard, which requires a separate controller for each system module.

White Paper "BioMaRe: Biomass calculator"
White Paper "BioMaRe: Biomass calculator" For transparent and efficient cultivation of micro-organisms

In biotechnology, the content and growth of biomass is an important process variable. There are different ways of quantifying this directly in the reactor. The methods currently used have advantages and disadvantages with regard to optimal process control and costs. This white paper demonstrates how biomass concentration and growth in biotech processes can be calculated using soft sensors and existing measurement signals.

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.

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?
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.

Machine vision with vision sensors, smart camera and checkbox
Machine vision with vision sensors, smart camera and checkbox Your productivity in focus: with industrial image processing from Festo

Machine vision systems from Festo make a decisive contribution to ensuring that the input and output are right. They monitor and stabilise processes, whether they’re reading codes or detecting positions for handling tasks. In some cases they even control the process itself. And they inspect quality from when the goods come in to when they are finished.

 

That makes your work easier. It makes your machines and systems more productive and flexible. And it further optimises the use of materials.

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.

Angle seat valve VZXF
Angle seat valve VZXF Tough

VZXF – the robust universal valve for process automation applications. Perfect for all tasks involving the control of media flows, whether contaminated or highly viscous. New variants have now been added to the VZXF range.

PSI 929.20 Stainless steel filter regulator PCRP
PSI 929.20 Stainless steel filter regulator PCRP For harsh environments

In corrosive atmospheres or extreme temperatures from -60 °C to +80 °C, the extremely robust filter regulator PCRP performs well, offering high flow rates and reliable pressure control. The housing and interior are entirely made of premium stainless steel to ensure high corrosion resistance. The PCRP series is available in sizes ¼" and ½" with G or NPT threads.

The VZXA easily adapts to the task in hand thanks to its range of variants, thus maximising flexibility and minimising the effort involved in designing your application. The carefully thought-out product architecture with its easy-to-clean design means valve bodies and actuators can be freely combined. The modular product concept makes it easier to modify and maintain systems without having to remove the entire valve.

 

White paper - Controlling process valves and considering functional safety (SIL)
White paper - Controlling process valves and considering functional safety (SIL)

Functional safety in the process industry is a topic that has very much moved centre stage since IEC 61508 came into force. It is frequently only indicated by the abbreviation SIL. But what exactly is SIL and how can it be used to control process valves?

Functional safety in the process industry
Functional safety in the process industry SIL - Safety Integrity Level

Safety equipment in process plants aims to reduce the hazards presented by a plant for people, the environment and property to the lowest possible, acceptable level. Depending on the potential hazards, plants are assigned a Safety Integrity Level (SIL1 to SIL4). SIL1 represents the lowest risk and SIL4 the highest acceptable risk with catastrophic consequences.
