Compressed air preparation directly in the system

The components in this series

The components in this series have been target-designed – from the seal for the cover to the individual screw.

Stainless steel maintenance units enable use in wet areas susceptible to corrosion

Reduce complexity, save energy: These goals can be easily achieved by positioning pneumatic components right where the action is. In wet and splash areas with an increased risk of corrosion, such as those found in the food industry, specific measures are required to ensure that processes run smoothly. Rexroth has the solution: pneumatic valves and cylinders with a hygienic design and corrosion-resistant materials. Thanks to the new MH1 series maintenance units, even compressed air can now be prepared exactly where it is needed.

The MH1 series features high-quality materials and a special design that makes the maintenance units especially safe for use in wash-down applications. All of the materials, such as stainless steel 316, PP, PTFE, as well as the lubricants, are FDA approved and resistant to corrosion. As a result, filters and pressure regulators (as well as the appropriate accessories) fulfill the strict demands of the food industry. Another benefit: the components can be cleaned under high pressure.

The soon to be released “Hygienic” pressure regulators are also suitable for use in the food processing sector, covering a temperature range of -10oC to +90oC with dry air.

With the introduction of the “Hygienic” pressure regulator, Rexroth pursues its strategy of a hygienic design for all pneumatics components. The company already offers EHEDG-certified pneumatic valves, as well as various pneumatic cylinders with a hygienic design, for use in the food and packaging industries.

A special plus for designers: The component CAD data can be downloaded free of charge.
