Festo presents the new MPA-C Clean Design valve terminals for use in food
and beverage industry applications.
Meeting the requirements for protection class IP69K, and CRC4, the highest
corrosion resistance class at Festo, Clean Design valve terminal MPA-C is
setting a new standard, making it suitable for both centralised and
decentralised installation concepts.
The use of FDA-compliant housing and NSF-H1-Fett grease in the MPA-C Clean
Design valve terminal complemented by a redundant seal system, allow
problem-free cleaning with high pressure jets or foam and enable the valve
terminals to be installed in harsh environmental conditions.
The Clean Design valve terminal MPA-C allows users and designers to
create decentralised installation concepts without a control cabinet in harsh
and intensively-cleaned environments in the food and beverage industry. This
valve terminal can be installed close to the application to save space.
Since no control cabinet is required, the need for tubing is reduced
allowing for quicker and simpler installation as well as rapid access for
servicing or maintenance work. Shorter tubing lengths allow cycle rates to be
speeded up, reducing cycle times even by half.
Adaptable to a machine design, MPA-C Clean Design valve terminal also
offers flexible configurations with an electrical interface on the front or
reverse; with multipin, fieldbus or Ethernet via the communication interface
CTEU/CTEL; with or without manual override; with anything from one to 32
pressure zones; and a freely configurable working port.
FDA-compliant tubing/fitting combinations NPCK with PFAN, electrical
connecting cables NEBV in IP69K and Clean Design drives such as CRDSNU or DSBF
complete the product portfolio offered by Festo.
