Hemlata Joglekar, ESE Manager Alfa Laval India says: “An economical and effective process is about two things: simplicity and control. That’s what Unique Control is all about. It’s a game changer on the valve market – no question.”
Unique Control features an innovative design where an air-pressure mechanism replaces the conventional mechanical actuator spring. This delivers outstanding durability: the actuator is tested for over a million strokes, making it possibly the most durable unit on the market.
The composite casing withstands harsh environments without weakening, corroding or discolouring. Unique Control is not sensitive to pressure shocks or temperature variations, eliminating false alarms that can shut down the process. The all-in-one design contributes to Unique Control’s outstanding hygiene, as well as ensuring stable and reliable operation.
The control unit’s precise surveillance capabilities ensure a smooth operation with good process economy, eliminating costly process interruptions due to unreliable alarms. It works with a conventional digital line or an AS-interface.
Unique Control detects the type and size of valve, and monitors air pressure in the system. It will sense any gradual drop in pressure and send a warning signal. That means the process can continue running or carry out a controlled action.
