HYDRACT is the world’s first sanitary process valve for the food and pharmaceutical industry operated and controlled by water instead of compressed air. HYDRACT is powered and controlled by water from a closed sterile system with 50 bars pressure.
The incompressibility of water combined with full digital control enable our customers to control of the product flow with a higher precision than with any other technology. The power consumption for valves is reduced by app 90% and product waste, water consumption and the use of chemicals is reduced significantly.
Investments in new equipment can be reduced because of the strength and precision water hydraulics.
The valve has been developed in close cooperation with the Carlsberg Group and other European partners since 2008. HYDRACT has received 5 grants from the European Commission and the Market Maturation Foundation in Denmark.
The actuator is patented by HYDRACT Aps in Denmark and USA with patent pending in Europe, China and Japan.
Carlsberg in Fredericia Denmark has been using HYDRACT valves in production since 2016. Carlsberg is also partner in a European consortium with HYDRACT, ACM and ProLeiT in a H2020 project HYDRACTFLEX aiming to demonstrate Carlsberg’s SMART-MIX method for blending different high gravity beers Just-In-Time and On-Demand in full scale at the brewery in Fredericia in Denmark.
HYDRACT Aps is located in Holstebro, Denmark and is a manufacturer of sanitary process valves based on the HYDRACT water hydraulic technology.
