Smaller actuator P11

March 2019

Size does matter - especially for pneumatic actuators

The new compact pneumatic actuator baelz 373-P11 can be used for many HVAC and mechanical applications and suits all Baelz valves with a spindle diameter of 10 mm, including ejectors. It is particularly suitable for small valves up to nominal diameters of DN 80 and, like its equivalent baelz 373-P21, it can run a full stroke of 22 mm.

Compared to the 373-P21, it is about 5 cm less wide and about 5 cm less high. The small volume of the P11 actuator is utile for compact systems where space is at a premium. The new P11 as well is made of high-quality aluminum die casting 'made in Germany' and weighs only 2.1 kg.

Due to a simple design, the pneumatic actuator can be used for OPG operations (valve closed without compressed air) or for OPO operations (valve open without compressed air). This allows to determine the OPG/OPO function during installation, without forcing the operator to disassemble the actuator.

The P11 actuator is maintenance free, and its longevity and reliability ensure high system availablility.


Energy-saving solutions for stainless steel production

September 2018

An international company uses an enormous amount of energy in its production process – especially in the generation of steam.

As steam generation is very cost-intensive, steam should be used economically, and surpluses should always be avoided. The previous steam-water transfer stations in the plant led the high-temperature condensate into open condensate tanks.

Here, the steam-water heat transfer stations from Baelz, a closed steam-condensate system without condensate tank, was recommended.

Meanwhile in Israel

August 2018, Israel

Currently, a large plant in a leading global food company in Israel is being converted to Baelz valves. Here, thermal oil serves as a heat transfer medium. The system was designed and implemented together with our local sales partner.

The "Bee" at the "Environment Week"

Baelz at Bellevue Palace Berlin

Baelz accepted the invitation of Joachim Gauck, the Federal President, and the German Environment Foundation (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt DBU) to Bellevue Palace to present its absorption chiller, named "Bee", at the booth in the president's garden.

The "Bee" was developed in cooperation with the Technical University of Berlin and several other project partners and supported by the BMWI (Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy). The event in Berlin, which took place for the fifth time, dealt with the topic of environmental protection and sustainability with special consideration of the related economic possibilities and sustainable solutions for global environmental issues and their effective public presentation.

The selected 200 exhibitors from over 600 applicants for participation presented top-performance innovations in environmental protection and conservation.


Our award-worthy "Bees" and "Bumblebees"

Baelz among the top 10

The highly sustainable cooling through excess heat, which was implemented by Baelz in cooperation with the Technical University of Berlin in the form of absorption cooling systems of various performance classes, resulted in Baelz being among the top 10 for the Industry Prize 2016.

This award, which honors industrial companies, recognizes the progress and economic, social, environmental and technological use of the products. This is assessed by a jury of experts.
