A Successful Exhibit at ACHEMA 2012
DFT® Valves’ Booth 19A was a busy place recently at the ACHEMA show in Frankfurt, Germany, where we had the opportunity to exhibit our extensive line of check and control valves to a global network of experts and executives in the chemical engineering and process industry. This week-long show boasted an attendance of more than 180,000 participants from over 100 countries, and provided a forum for us to highlight our products and capabilities to existing and potential customers in the international marketplace.
DFT was pleased to speak with the many guests at our booth, from plant managers to C-level execs, about how important valves are to the piping systems in a chemical processing operation, and to discuss the impact that control valve performance could have on overall plant efficiency. We demonstrated how our highly reliable control valves, which feature a straight-thru design that allows non-obstructed flow, as well as our silent in-line check valves, already used worldwide to prevent damaging flow reversal, could improve their operations. Also on hand at the booth were valves in various materials of construction – we offer valves that tolerate applications from mild to highly aggressive, giving us the ability to deliver to our customers the precise solution for their processing needs.
As we boarded the airplane to head back home, we reflected on our success at the show. It is always a pleasure to listen to industry professionals and learn about industry trends, but it’s also important to us is hearing stories from those on the factory floor, where we can help with immediate solutions to practical problems.
