Innovative control for inflatable seats from EBRO ARMATUREN

Hagen, March 2022 – The Hagen-based industrial valves specialist EBRO ARMATUREN has launched INFLAS PRO, an innovative method of controlling inflatable seats in the series of INFLAS valves. The control unit, equipped with a microcontroller, not only cycles the full range of operations for opening and closing the valve, it also monitors all the relevant parameters. Thus, it can proactively detect potential malfunctions in advance and report them back to the PLC via a volt-free contact.

EBRO ARMATUREN Expands Management

Hagen, August 2020 – On July 1, the two Managing Directors Lydia Bröer and her father Peter Bröer appointed the head of “International Sales” -Mr. Markus Schneider- as Managing Director of EBRO ARMATUREN Gebr. Bröer GmbH. From now on the Managing Director will manage the company together with both of them…

Connectivity from the Valve to the Cloud

IoT- but how? This question is increasingly being asked by plant manufacturers and operators. Networking, data provision, data evaluation and their use is interesting, but only if all disciplines are thought and implemented together. Until now, the industry has found it very difficult to offer intelligent concepts in this area. In the following article, the valve manufacturer EBRO presents its „SBU Advanced“ concept, which ensures the proper operation of all components of a valve unit through continuous monitoring.

Valves for potentially explosive areas

Considered separately, a valve is a non-electrical device that does not have a potential ignition source of its own. However, when installed and working within an operating environment, valves are capable of becoming electrostatically charged and causing hot surfaces. Thus, ultimately, they can indeed be considered a potential source of ignition. For this reason, valves come under the scope of the ATEX Directive 2014/34/ EU. Issue: 2019/2020

Discharge and metering

The chemical and pharmaceutical industries often process highly active substances with properties that necessitate safe containment and effective explosion protection. As a result, the requirements imposed on process technology have not just become more diverse but also more complex. Issue: 12/2019

Digitalisation: Sensible operation and monitoring of valves

Guided by its extensive experience in developing and engineering valves and actuators and prompted by the changing requirements of the market, EBRO has developed a modular sensor platform for drives and actuator units. Issue: 2019/2020

Health Check for fittings

Until now, it was not possible to predict gradual changes in the valve parts during the closing process. The result was often costly measures to prolong the service life. Thanks to intelligent measuring technology, it is now possible to detect any possible seal wear at an early stage. Issue: 4/2019

That doesn ́t get out of control

In form- and core-shooting machines, which work with the air-flow method, the quartz sand mixed with binder is shot at high pressure into a core box. The closing fitting of the core box in this application – the butterfly valve – is thus exposed to extreme pressure conditions, which it has to withstand – a great challenge for the plant operator.

Controlling and regulating solid material flows

Regardless of whether production facilities already exist or are to be newly built. the demands on their performance requirements are increasing. This requires specially adapted valves to control and regulate solid flows.
