At this year’s Gulfood exhibition in Dubai, taking place 25 – 28 February 2013, Parker Hannifin will be showcasing a number of new innovative solutions that support the production, packaging and bottling sectors within the Food and Beverage Industry.
On show will be Parker domnick hunter’s unique portable filter integrity tester. The Valairdata 3 has been designed utilizing 40 years of experience in the provision of sterile air and gas filtration solutions. It is the quickest and easiest way to verify the integrity of sterile gas filter systems. This evolution of the instrument incorporates state-of-the-art technologies to enhance the benefits offered by the aerosol challenge in comparison to other sterile gas filter testing methodologies. Such feature upgrades include touchscreen operation, enhanced-life and lightweight battery, and USB transfer of test data. These features combine to improve the usability, data handling and ultimately reduce the time taken to perform filter tests in comparison to other instruments and methodologies.

Also on show at Gulfood will be the newly developed OIL-Xplus ADVANTAGE filter element which is proven to save an incredible 54%* in energy costs over alternative elements. The new element features a pleated construction that delivers 3 times the open area when compared to equivalent products. This ensures a greater dirt holding capacity, while providing low-pressure drop across the element, which in turn delivers lower energy costs. By fitting the new OIL-Xplus ADVANTAGE element you benefit from maintaining the original equipment specifications combined with improvements in performance and reduction in operating costs.

Parker’s Hiross Zander division will be introducing the new Antares compressed air dryer-range at Gulfood. The launch of the new compressed air purification technology offers significant advantages with respect to efficiency, flexibility and life-time cost. The basis of “Antares Tandem Technology”, developed by Parker Hiross is the combination of two well-proven technologies, refrigeration and adsorption drying, which have now been integrated in a new intelligent manner. Currently Antares is available for volume flows from 2,5 up to 34 m³/min and energy consumption is up to 44% less compared to products that feature similar technologies. The pressure dew point can be freely set between +3 °C and -70°C.

Adding to the line-up of new products, Parker domnick hunter will be showcasing the latest nitrogen gas generator developed for the food industry. Industrial nitrogen gas generators provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional bottled or bulk storage nitrogen sources in applications such as modified atmosphere packaging, purging, blanketing and pressure transfer. A fully operational MIDIGAS nitrogen generator will be on display at the show and will demonstrate how food-grade nitrogen can be produced, from a standard compressed air supply safely, easily and cost-effectively.

Parker’s Fluid Systems Connectors Division will be displaying the innovative Transair piping solution for compressed air and nitrogen distribution networks. Transair is a unique, truly flexible and upgradeable aluminium pipe system which ensures a total absence of corrosion and pollution. The inner pipe surface consistently delivers clean industrial gases from the source to the point-of-use. As a result, Transair ensures the longevity of the complete installation and reduces the maintenance cost to a minimum.
