Ceramic air valves reduce maintenance cost
The story line has been repeated endless times, maintenance personnel have to deal with directional control valves that stopped working far sooner than they should – slowing down or stopping production. The valves could be located in a harsh environment, like a tire plant or a foundry. Or it could be that the factory just routinely has poor quality “house” compressed air. Rexroth Ceram™ valves to the rescue. By using ceramic plates for basic sealing, the Ceram valve can tolerate environmental conditions such as corrosion, dust, dirt and sand that end up in an air line far better than traditional spool design valves.
