Pushing the boundaries of valve-position indication to Industry 4.0

| By Mary Page Bailey

The new ThinkTop V20 (photo) is the next generation of hygienic valve-indication units. With automation, digitalization and real-time communication, the ThinkTop V20 raises the bar on process control, making it more reliable and accurate, while saving time and money on installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance, the company says. The ThinkTop V20 is the first pure valve-sensing unit that is maintenance-free and does not require manual adjustment or programming. It enables 360-deg LED visual status indication, and also provides convenient control-room monitoring of the real-time status of this company’s hygienic valves. — Alfa Laval AB, Lund, Sweden
