Festo online valve configurator – The new KVZA butterfly-valve configurator organizes the selection of the optimum assembly into a few simple and quick steps.

Festo has announced the KVZA Butterfly-Valve Configurator, an online configuration tool designed to lower overhead by speeding up and simplifying procurement of manual and automated butterfly valves. In only minutes with the configurator, the company says, engineers will have the price, estimated delivery date, data sheet, bill of material, 2D CAD data, 3D CAD models, and certificates of the optimum butterfly valve for the application.

Units arrive fully assembled and tested. https://www.festo.com/us/en/a/8073655/?q=kvza~:festoSortOrderScored

Many actuation and automation options are available through the KVZA configurator, including:

  • Actuation option of Manual (hand lever) or Automated (pneumatic actuator)
  • Open/Closed or Proportional Control (positioner)
  • Visual Indicator, Limit Switch, or Puck Sensor
  • NAMUR Pilot Valve

Butterfly valves are available in wafer and lug styles, and DIN and ANSI compatible formats. Nominal diameters range from 1 to 12 in. (DN 25 to DN 300). Shut off materials include ductile cast iron with polyamide (PA) coating, stainless steel with PFA (perfluoroalkoxy alkane) coating, and stainless steel. Sealing element materials include EPDM, NBR, and PTFE with silicone.

Quarter-turn actuators can be either double acting or single acting; low, standard, or high temperature; as well as G or NPT threads for the air connection. In the case of washdown applications, there is also an option for epoxy coating to provide higher corrosion resistance.
