May 25, 2021 - Festo recently introduced an application-specific pneumatic cylinder for cheese presses that improves consistency and quality in large operations and low-volume artisan cheese making.
The stainless-steel outer body of the Festo CRD cylinder represents the latest in sanitary innovation as its unique bell-shaped construction provides best-in-class hygienic design. These cylinders are lubricated with NSF-H1 grease, which is safe for human consumption, biodegradable, and meets FDA 21 CFT 172.878 regulations. Four bore sizes are available, with forces ranging from 678 pounds (3016 N) to 4,237 pounds (18,850 N) at 6 bar.
CRD cylinders hold accurate pressure for the desired time to ensure precise process control, which optimizes product consistency and quality. To further enhance control, Festo offers the VTEM piezo operated directional valves to synchronize large banks of cylinders in automated systems, providing maximum flexibility and product range.
Low-friction seals prolong service life. For environments experiencing intensive cleaning, Festo offers a dry-running seal option for optimum operation even when harsh washdowns have dissolved cylinder lubricant.
