SOPHISTICATED VALVE DESIGNS FOR FILLING AND DOSING PROCESSES

Cleverly designed modern valves have now become an essential component of numerous filling and dosing processes.

GEMÜ offers its customers a wide range of solutions for carrying out such challenging tasks.

Various requirements are placed on the design of valves, depending on the application and the industrial sector in which they are used.

The type of valve and actuator must be matched to the right body material and selected based on the required dosing accuracy, the type of media in use, the aggregate state and the quantity that will need to be dosed or filled.

The valve that is selected varies greatly depending on the particular requirements that it must fulfil: Whether dosing liquid or powdered colouring pigments in the concrete or textile industry, dosing chemicals for use in water treatment and battery production, or dosing aromas or additives. GEMÜ also offers its customers solutions that are suitable for dosing gases, such as the GEMÜ 554 globe valve or the GEMÜ 660 diaphragm valve for filling processes, which can be used when expanding polystyrene foam or filling drinks, for example.

In addition to resistance to the medium used and the temperatures that will be reached in the process, the switching speed is another key variable that needs to be taken into consideration. Valves in the GEMÜ iComLine series are used primarily in processes in which having an adequate resistance to media is just as important as the dosing output.

The GEMÜ SonicLine flowmeter, which takes fully contactless ultrasonic measurements, is another highlight of the product range. An integrated batch control function can be set to actuate the relevant valve.

Offering not only a broad product range but also the GEMÜ modular system means that customers can choose from a wide variety of valves and different design options.

As regards the necessary process automation, GEMÜ offers the convenient option to provide its valves with the appropriate positioners and process controllers ex-works.
