The MPA-C boasts many valve functions, and the modular sub-base design facilitates maximum flexibility to expand to a maximum of 32 valves or solenoid coils.
“Safety in food production is ensured by international directives and standards such as the EC Directive 2006/42/EC for Machinery and EN 1672-2 and EN ISO 14159 for hygiene requirements,” said Jacqui Hanbury, product manager at Festo. “To help system builders and food producers meet these requirements as simply as possible, Festo has developed a range of automation components for use in hygienically critical environments and those subject to intensive cleaning.”
With FDA approval for all external materials and the valves being lubricated using NSF-H1 food-grade grease, the valve terminal can be used in food and splash zones. A redundant seal system enables trouble-free, intensive cleaning with high pressure jets or foam, enabling installation in locations with harsh environmental conditions subject to cleaning in accordance with IP69k.
