Proportional Pressure Control Valve

Proportional Pressure Control Valves are used in container glass production for process functions such as Plunger up, Counter-Blow/Plunger-Cooling and Final Blow/Finish Cooling/Settle Blow. A Proportional Pressure Control Valve regulates the pressure precisely and continuously and can be flexible adapted to different production requirements. Whether for Press-Blow, Blow-Blow or Narrow-Neck Press-Blow processes – the Proportional Pressure Control Valves ensure high process flexibility and high glass container quality.

The ROSS Proportional Pressure Control Valve offers much more as a proportional pressure control. Its extensive analysis and communication features are unique and offer many more advantages.

New: The valve continuously monitors its own performance and the external supply in order to compensate automatically compensates for disturbances and inform the user as well as the control system about the process sequence.

Advantages: This information helps to identify problems in the system more quickly and to take preventive action to ensure uninterrupted machine operation and optimal product quality. The new valve features help to achieve a better productivity, less maintenance costs and more machine availability.

The Diagnostic Tablet allows users to monitor and optimize important steps of the bottle forming processes in real time. Communication functions of the valves support predictive maintenance and minimized machine down-time.

Why ROSS Poppet Valves are the ideal solution for the Glass Industry?

ROSS poppet valves are the product of choice for the Container Glass Industry. With its proven reliability and performance plus consistent switching time it has proven itself over many decades in this challenging and unforgiving environment. Its internal construction has been carefully calculated to produce strong shifting and sealing forces in each direction which results in a design which ensures high speed, repeatability and high shifting forces over the life of the valve.

ROSS poppet valves have positive sealing with no sliding action to prevent damage and wear. They are also self-cleaning and dirt tolerant thanks to the smallest flow-through area across the poppet’s seal and seat which produces a high-enough velocity to blow out all dirt and foreign matter. Plus, the valve is self-compensating for wear by automatically changing stroke length due to height changes in the valve seal from burnishing. These valves are designed for high-temperature service.
