Ball valve assembly program
Festo now assembles, warrants and supports ready-to-install ball valve assemblies that can include the ball valve, Namur solenoid, actuator, positioner, and sensor. Until now, most ball valve assemblies have been locally-sourced and built for each plant. This leads to variations in part numbers, components, quality, support, and higher-than-needed inventory levels. Consistency plant-to-plant is an issue for large multinational corporations and major OEMs. The new Festo program ensures consistency, especially for the components, that allow precise control of the ball valve.
