MVQ Actuator Feedback

Featuring compact constructions and easy mounting, the new MVQ201 from ifm not only monitors and reports valve proposition to the nearest degree, but also has an integral M12 connector that can be used for connecting the valve.

With this option, the valve is controlled via the same IO-Link connection used to monitor the sensor, which eliminates the need for separate valve wiring, thereby reducing both installation complexity and costs.

In use, the MVQ201 sensor continually monitors the valve position and makes the position data available to the control system via an IO-Link interface.

The sensor can also be programmed to detect changes, such as an increased opening and closing time, which might indicate valve faults or blockages, and to report these changes via IO-Link. This makes it an ideal choice for use in condition-based monitoring applications.

Applied Machinery Genox S-Series Raspers

The S-Series Rasper is mainly used in waste tyre recycling, providing a second “crushing” of material which has been pre-shredded by a twin shaft shredder.

The Rasper uses cutting and squeezing principles with rotor/counter knives to separate the steel wire from the crushed material, achieving a separation efficiency of more than 98 per cent and processing capacity of up to five tonnes an hour.

The easily replaceable DC53 cutting tools are bolt mounted, with knife supports and fixing wedges, ensuring long life and low operation costs. D2 counter knives can be adjusted individually to maintain consistent cutting clearance, while V-belts and a large flywheel ensure energy-efficient medium-speed cutting.

The casing and screen bracket are controlled by hydraulic drive, so that knife and screen replacement is convenient and quick. A two-piece chamber, fitted with wear-plates to process abrasive materials, also provides easy access for maintenance.

An independent bearing seat helps to prevent dust and debris from entering the bearing, avoiding blockages and extending the service life of the bearing.

A dual-motor drive means the S-Series Rasper can be used as a high-power single-motor drive, reducing the impact of the motor on the power grid when it is started.
