At Interphex 2015, Festo Showcases New Solutions for Pharmaceutical Process Control | Process Validation Engineer
HAUPPAUGE, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2015
Festo displays at Interphex 2015, April 21-23 at the Javits Center in New York city, a new combination of services and items developed to lower overall costs for OEMs and system integrators to make skid control cabinets. This brand-new technique from Festo likewise enhances the marketability and flexibility of OEM and integrator skids by lowering risk for end users through products engineered to interact, Festo worldwide support, and adherence to international standards.
Festo online design tools lower engineering time for skid control cabinets. These tools identify parts most carefully engineered to collaborate, ensuring faster manufacture, remarkable performance, and difficulty free operation. The company likewise provides a one stop purchase electronic and pneumatic elements found on the skid, but outside the control cabinet, such as valve terminals, valves, and actuators. These elements operate within combined control architecture – an architecture that includes exceptional diagnostic abilities. .
“The new Festo effort not only assists OEMs and integrators deliver a remarkable control cabinet swiftly and at a saving, it likewise supplies the end user with an option that supplies continuous diagnostic information,” stated Craig Correia, Process Automation Industry Manager for Festo.
This data assists to ensure high uptime, enhance validation/commissioning efficiency, and process quality. At the heart of any Festo skid architecture is the CPX modular controller with the MPA valve terminal. This in-the-cabinet controller offers serial linkage and consistent interaction down to the valve level for thorough diagnostics. The compact MPA terminal has up to 64 valve positions/128 solenoid coils. This saves considerable area in the control cabinet and provides trusted feedback-free changing of pilot valves/process actuators.
The Festo MPA valve terminal in this application features multipole installing plates that decrease assembly time because there is no requirement to produce brief runs of pneumatic cable within the cabinet or to make several bulkhead connections. Multipole plate gaskets have NEMA and IP scores so the stability of the enclosure is kept versus moisture, dust, and gases. By getting rid of all the brief pneumatic hoses inside the cabinet, the time to validate connections during the factory acceptance test or when carrying out field service is considerably minimized. Having all of the pneumatic connections on the exterior of the cabinet wall improves the looks and standards compliance for the cabinet.
Another key skid part is the MPA-C clean design valve terminal, which is installed beyond the control cabinet closer to the point of process actuation. Close to the actuation installing speeds up setup and decreases energy consumption. This valve terminal is simple to clean, extremely deterioration resistant, strong, and exceptionally functional. This system provides a modular single sub-base that houses a maximum of 32 valves or solenoid coils. The MPA-C is rated IP69K and is built of FDA accredited materials. The device is fieldbus/Ethernet ready by means of the Festo CTEU module.
Festo is likewise including the versatile VZXF angle seat valve for skid applications. The VZXF regulates gaseous or liquid media in open and closed circuits. The angle valve is appropriate for polluted or gaseous media to a viscosity of 600mm2/s. It features a stainless steel design with high thermal resistance and N/C performance, which creates dependable closing on pressure drops. . Hundreds of other products relevant to process control and a choice of active demonstrations are showcased at the Festo booth. Festo engineering and applications experts will certainly respond to visitors’ questions about the new Festo initiative to cut time and cost for producing skid control cabinets.
