These types of valve control units are imperative to operations in distilleries, breweries and personal care. The systems create explosive gases and thus require components and features that meet higher regulations, including:

  • Built to prevent sparks, flames and the ignition of flammable gases or vapors in hazardous environments
  • Meets increased safety standards that aim to provide impact-resistant enclosures for electrical equipment and prevent any ignition risks in hazardous areas
  • Able to withstand high temperatures and pressures while resisting the corrosive and abrasive nature of food and beverage products
