    The launch of an intelligent valve system

    21 May 2018

    Krones division Evoguard presented a new intelligent valve solution. “An intelligent valve tells the operator when it is due for service. Normally you have fixed intervals where gaskets of valves or other components are maintained. With this intelligence we want to reduce the downtime of a component and extending the operation life of a component,” explains Constantin Anastasyadis at Krones. “This is a gasket for any system with outside use. So it is not particularly limited to filling machines, but to any valve no matter, where it is used or operated. If you have a very delicate system such as milk, you want to have a restricted downtime and be clear that your product is well maintained and not risk contamination But it is really about reducing downtime and not necessarily gasket materials.”
