Flow control for food and beverage

Improved process performance

Meeting increasing demand while maintaining safety is a key factor in the food and beverage industry. This pressure is driving technologies that help meet regulatory requirements while delivering a competitive edge in terms of efficient and economical performance. Proven technologies and enhanced capabilities are helping overcome new challenges.

Lower costs


Proven performance for sanitary process applications

Modern food production plants such as dairies are quite complex units, which include a lot of automation. Products and production processes must be absolutely clean, which brings special requirements also for automation system, measurement sensors and valve communication.

High availability of automation is even more important in food industry than in other industries. There are no storages for the products. The entire production is based on orders. The amount of different products is quite high. Only completely automated processes based on sophisticated recipe controls can guarantee high quality of the products. The same applies also for biotechnology products, such as enzymes, which are manufactured in fermentation reactors.

Food and beverage companies are facing increasing competition and need increased efficiency, reduced costs and agility. We are working with many global industry leaders to address these needs and requirements with our valve controllers and monitors. All our products are supported by a comprehensive service offering and service network.

Predictive maintenance

You can avoid downtime due to valve failure by having easy access to information about critical parameters. Using Wireless Link you can remotely monitor valve function and access difficult to reach communication and control modules safely and conveniently even up to 50 meters away.

Easy, safe and secure access with Wireless Link

You can set the sensors from a remote location using the Wireless Link app on an iPhone or iPad without ever opening the cover. This option is available in our Stonel™ Axiom™, Eclipse™ and Prism™ platforms for AS-interface and DeviceNet bus networks and in the Axiom and Eclipse platforms for conventional applications. Sustainable, yet profitable performance is a result of design and engineering aimed at minimized emissions and reduced size, weight and complexity.

Improved process performance and reduced total life cycle costs

We provide solutions you need for integrating your automated valves. Optimum performance means that all components of your process need to be efficiently integrated with your control system. We will cooperate with your design team and third party vendors to create the communication and control interfaces you need, recommending the right components for the optimal efficiency of your entire system.

Reducing costs through smart design

The use of space and time are typically the most expensive parts of constructing a new production plant. Combining our products with a DeviceNet™ or AS-interface protocol system to interconnect your automated valves will lower your construction costs and enable faster installation than with conventional systems. Our low profile linkages allow you to reduce the physical footprint.

Lower inventory costs with universal adaptability

The same device, Stonel™ Axiom™ or Eclipse™, mounts directly onto either a spring return or double acting actuator with ease. And thanks to Axiom’s universal solenoid feature our customers also have added flexibility in terms of using any power from any source ranging in voltage from 24VDC to 250VAC.
