Leading valve manufacturer Herose is currently exhibiting at ACHEMA 2009 in Frankfurt, presenting a range of innovations and market-leading developments in valve technology.

Entitled the ‘29th International Exhibition Congress for Chemical technology, Environmental Protection and Biotechnology’, the fair is running from the 11th-15th May.

Regarded as the world’s most important fair for the valves industry, Herose sees ACHEMA as offering ‘an excellent platform on which to present ourselves as the world’s market leader’.

The company will be presenting new products at the event which reflect both the new trend for stainless steel and the development of higher quality and more specialised products. Among Herose’s range of innovations on display in Frankfurt, the fair will be affording the world premiere of its Type 01541 Cryogenic Shut-off Valve – only recently completed and a further development of its predecessor, the 01341.

Durable and guaranteeing a longer shelf life than its predecessor, the 01541 features a newly developed Flex shaft and is completely made from stainless steel, therefore rendering it suitable for further fields of application and even use in the chemical industry for example.

“In order to remain fit for the future, we need to continually monitor the market, to fulfil our customer’s requirements and open up new fields of activity,” said Herose Managing Partner Wilfried Zschalich.

Fellow Managing Partner Dirk Zschalich spoke of the significance of exhibiting at ACHEMA 2009 in the latest issue of Valves Community, the publication of Herose.

He said, “The ACHEMA is important to us for two reasons: On the one hand it is Europe’s most important fair in the field of industrial valves, and most of our customers are present there. For this reason alone, as the market leader we must be represented in Frankfurt.”

“However, the ACHEMA is also a chemicals fair – and this is a market where we see opportunities for future growth.”
