Festo launches online KVZA butterfly-valve configurator

The new Festo KVZA Butterfly-Valve Configurator lowers overhead by speeding up and simplifying procurement of manual and automated butterfly valves. In only minutes with the configurator, engineers will have the price, estimated delivery date, datasheet, 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. 
This new tool, the latest in the Festo series of engineering productivity enhancers, provides support throughout the entire valve procurement process from search to order. All the following are combined into a single tool: configuration, sizing, documenta¬tion, request for quotation, ordering, and delivery. In addition to the features listed above, the KVZA tool features a direct link to the Festo Online Shop, a user-friendly interface, advice on solutions, and a configuration-compatible bill of materials.
Butterfly valves are available in wafer and lug styles, and DIN and ANSI compatible formats. Nominal diameters range from 1 to 12 inches (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 the epoxy coating to provide higher corrosion resistance.
