Linde’s EVOS™ valve wins award

Linde Gases, a division of The Linde Group, has announced that its gas cylinder valve, EVOS™ Ci, has won the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015.
Product entries are assessed on a number of criteria including degree of innovation, functionality, build quality, ergonomics, durability, ease-of-use, ecological compatibility, integration capabilities and degree of emotional connection to the product. This year’s Red Dot competition received almost 5,000 entries from 56 countries, across 31 categories.
The EVOS™ valve range represents a significant leap from standard gas industry valves not only in its striking, state-of-the-art ergonomic design, but also in terms of safety and productivity benefits delivered.
Importantly, EVOS™ employs a uniquely designed, quick-action lever in place of the more traditional hand-wheel mechanism for opening and closing the valve. This innovative open/close functionality ensures easy opening to improve efficiency, fast closing in case of emergency and, as an extra safety feature, the ability to physically see at a distance whether the valve is open or closed.
“We are delighted to receive this award from such an eminent product design jury,” said Colin Haden, Head of Linde’s Centre of Excellence for Packaged Gases. Linde has always played a pioneering role in terms of technology development within our industry. The Red Dot Award recognises EVOS™ as true breakthrough in valve design and a leap forward in performance, safety, ergonomics and efficiency.”
