Clearing the way

Festo’s reverse jet pulse valve VZWE is claimed to eliminate the risk of blockages in dust removal systems. With a brief blast of compressed air, the heavy-duty valve keeps the dust filters free in many applications and industry sectors.

Whether in the manufacture of cement or paper, mining or tobacco processing, chemical or foodstuff industries –filters are used and become full sooner or later during the production processes. Whenever there is a risk of plugging up, the VZWE 2/2-way valve is ready to clear the way again.

The reverse jet pulse valve is part of a cleaning system with compressed air and its efficient housing design ensures a high flow. Thanks to its special piston unit, the heavy-duty VZWE opens and closes quickly, which is said to improve the cleaning effect significantly. A range of port sizes and mechanisms is available and allows for a universal implementation.
