In any production process, it is critical to ensure
stable and constant process conditions to
reach optimum product quality and process
efficiency. Any control equipment must be capable
of eliminating any variations in the process
variables that could cause the process to consume
both more energy and consumables than normal,
pushing up production costs. The stability of the
downstream control loop may also be affected,
impacting on both product quantity and quality.
With the compressed air used by valve positioners
being around ten times more expensive than
electricity, accurate control is essential to minimizing
plant overheads as well as eliminating
potential problems in the downstream process.
Thanks to an innovative control algorithm taken
from the field of robotics, the our positioner
stands out thanks to its speed and accuracy.
Overshooting and slow recovery times are both
prevented, allowing the our products to significantly
optimize compressed air consumption, energy
efficiency and the ʹecological footprintʹ of
pneumatic control circuits.
Subsequently, it is able to help reduce .
cost with its unique electro-pneumatic system,
providing unsurpassed low air/gas consumption
at steady state. it can also be used in
applications with natural gas as the supply energy,
eliminating the need for compressed instrument air.
Most control valves in many processes will rarely
have to move, commonly enabling operators to opt
for positioners with lifetimes of less than 100,000
strokes. However, there are some applications
where valves will need to handle frequent changes
in process conditions. In such applications, where
100,000 strokes may occur in a single year alone,
there is a need for a positioner that can handle
these changes with minimal need for maintenance.
