From manually operated to automated process valves, the new configurator for process valves from Festo makes selecting the optimum solution child's play. Simply select a few parameters and the configurator will immediately suggest appropriate combinations, making engineering in the process industry fast, reliable and easy.
The configurator for process valve units significantly simplifies engineering and procurement processes. The tool ensures quick and successful project management by taking all relevant factors into account: from initial product search, configuration, sizing and documentation right through to ordering and delivery of the ready-to-install process valve unit – including customer-specific requests, everything is combined in one tool.
Configurated process valve units are tailored and ready-to-install, all components are perfectly matched: butterfly valves, quarter turn actuators, pilot valves, sensor boxes, positioners, adapter kits and hand levers. Whatever you are looking for, whether it is the ease of manually actuated combinations, a unit with pilot valves and a sensor box, or a unit with a positioner, you simply choose the required parameters in the input menu and the configurator suggests the right solutions.
Order ID and CAD download included
Together with the proposed solution, the configurator generates an order ID for the complete combination, which can be used for placing future orders. There are also benefits in terms of documentation because the CAD data for the complete module can be downloaded in accordance with the configuration.
