Enhanced calibration process4
Ensure constant diameter and product cooling thanks to a tight control of water supply pressure. Maintain quality regardless of sudden demands in water usage from neighboring lines and factory installations. With enhanced calibration, targeted diameters are reached faster and higher process capability indexes (Cpk) are attainable. The waterflow is constantly monitored and adjusted to the requested values by the system’s controls. This is available for all of the Heating & Plumbing lines delivered today.
