Customised solution for discharging and metering

EBRO cycle lock “TS” has many safety-relevant featuress

Hagen, March 2023 – EBRO ARMATUREN has developed a customisable solution for discharging and metering powdery substances. The EBRO cycle lock “TS” is used whenever discharge from silos, weighing tanks, filtering systems or big bags and feed into downstream production processes such as vacuum reactors, sieving machines, mixers or packaging machines cannot be realised with standard valves.

EBRO Z 400: perfect for PE/PP piping

EBRO ARMATUREN has engineered a special butterfly valve for installing in plastic pipes

Hagen, April 2022 – In redesigning its Series Z 400, EBRO ARMATUREN has emerged as the only company within the market to offer a butterfly valve that has been specially developed for use in plastic pipes. Dimensions precisely adapted to the standardised PE/PP stub flange, and especially the adaptation of the inside diameter to that of PE/PP pipes, serve to ensure easy, error-free assembly, maximum flow and optimal hygiene.

Smart Box for valve management

Digital platform for intelligent valve management from EBRO ARMATUREN

Hagen, October 2021 – Industrial valves are analogue components that play an important role in many different system processes. The Hagen-based manufacturer EBRO ARMATUREN is adopting an innovative approach to the digitalisation of valves and, with its new module EBRO Smart Box Unit SBU IO-Link, offers extensive monitoring and documentation functions. The module can be integrated seamlessly into existing digital and analogue system and process controllers via IO-Link, Bluetooth or other standardised interfaces. The benefits for customers are obvious: they have an overview of the relevant parameters at all times, can record operating states digitally and thus detect problems at an early stage thanks to automation. This allows failures to be prevented and process reliability increased.

Drinking water treatment facility in urgent need of renovation

Hagen, October 2021 – EBRO ARMATUREN is supplying nearly 250 industrial valves for the renovation of the Horstmühle waterworks, which is located 50 km north-west of Hamburg. Various EBRO valves are to be fitted inside the plant, a simple ground waterworks, to carry untreated water up to the elevated tank.

Unbeatable quality for the most stringent requirements

EBRO valves supporting Turkey’s Oksut gold mine project

Hagen, October 2021 – Extraordinary assignments call for extraordinary expertise: the Oksut gold mine project in Turkey, where ore is extracted and processed via heap leaching to produce gold, features a large number of EBRO valves. This is because this particular method puts the materials through numerous chemical processes, meaning that the products used have to be of the utmost quality. With its broad-based, high-quality portfolio, EBRO was able to supply bespoke/customized solutions that met even these stringent requirements. As part of the gold mine project, they are used in the heap leaching process, the transport of dangerous/hazardous goods (ADR) and the fire extinguishing systems.

EBRO butterfly valves help ensure gas safety

When combined with a pneumatic actuator, the Z 011-A and Z 014-A butterfly valves fulfil all the requirements of EN 161

Hagen, October 2021 – The EN 161 standard requires gas safety valves to be designed so that they open when voltage is applied and close automatically when it is switched off. The   Z 011-A and Z 014-A butterfly valves from Hagen-based EBRO ARMATUREN meet these requirements when combined with the EB SYS pneumatic actuator, thus offering customers a relatively low-priced solution that delivers maximum safety.

The temperature is right – The Z 011-A EBRO THERM®/Z 014-A EBRO THERM®

The original for use in heating and cooling systems

In addition to the main functions of shut-off and throttling, the “THERM®” version of the        Z 011-A and Z 014-A butterfly valve series offers the possibility of medium temperature control without additional installations.

Using cycle locks for explosion isolation

Family Business with Great Know-how and Uncompromising Precision

The task proved highly complex: a company in the chemicals industry wanted the discharge of fast-coagulating, extremely temperature-sensitive products in powder form from a cyclone to be adapted in line with its new safety concept.

The first step was the risk assessment required under the German Hazardous Substances Ordinance, which also makes reference to the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health. The resulting explosion protection document stipulated very early on that a fire or, even worse, an explosion inside the cyclone would have to be contained and the downstream parts of the system isolated in all circumstances that could realistically be expected to arise.
