Alfa Laval ThinkTop V20 hygienic valve indication units for process industries are said to move valve position monitoring into the Industry 4.0 era with IO-Link interface capability.

The hygienic valve is the first pure valve-sensing unit that is maintenance-free and does not require manual adjustment or programming, the company says.

The unit enables 360° LED visual status indication from all directions. It also provides convenient control-room monitoring of the real-time status of Alfa Laval hygienic valves used across the dairy, food, beverage, home and personal care, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and other industries.

Purpose-designed to digitalize essential on-off valve monitoring, the sensing unit is also said to provide a pragmatic approach to enhancing the reliability of valve status and position.
