Schubert & Salzer tests control and on-off valves under real conditions

Schubert & Salzer Control Systems is expanding the testing options for its high-performance industrial valves, which can be used in food processing, and the bottling of beverages.

With a new steam test bench, the company has created options for its own product tests that it says go well beyond the industry standard. Longer and more intensive tests of different valve types and electronic components have since been possible at the company’s headquarters and production site in Ingolstadt, Germany.

All relevant properties of control and on-off valves – such as speed and precision or leak-tightness – can now be tested intensively under real conditions and further improved. Long-term tests and thermal load tests are also performed in-house. The test bench’s steam boiler can produce up to 400 kilograms of saturated steam per hour.

As a result, industrial customers benefit from much more application-specific tests and even more practically oriented training courses and presentations, because applications can also be realistically simulated on the new test bench. The investment is thus a very good supplement to the water test bench – which was only modernised a few years ago – in the customer training centre at Schubert & Salzer Control Systems.

The steam test bench is integrated in a state-of-the-art power station with a combined heat and power plant. The configuration of the plants, which is perfectly tailored to the company’s own needs, supplies the entire Schubert & Salzer works site in Ingolstadt with green electricity and thermal energy.
