Gericke RotaVal have launched an enhanced version of their class leading RotaSafeTM system for their rotary valves. Designated the RotaSafe RS1 it has been developed in close cooperation with key customers.
The rotor protection system RotaSafe is designed to instantly detect any contact between the rotor and valve housing while at the same time sending a signal to the control system to isolate power to the drive motor. It will primarily be of interest to customers where product contamination due to metal to metal contact is a significant issue.
For many years Gericke RotaVal has continuously improved its foreign body and contact system. This latest version provides additional functionality, flexibility, and optimized responsiveness for the end user. The first systems have been delivered and are in full operation, protecting the process equipment and the products.
