Gas Valve Manifold Box

Fäth Gas Valve Manifold Box is designed to distribute hazardous specialty gas from Bulk Specialty Gas Systems or Gas Cabinets while complying with applicable standards and guidelines to ensure that occupational health and safety standards are consistently met. The system is controlled using the integration of PLC and HMI to facilitate semi-automatic operations while providing the user with a visual overview of the system’s status at a glance. Various safety features are incorporated into the system to detect hazards and perform necessary functions automatically to mitigate accidents.

Kindly consult Fäth Asia for assistance in developing a system that meets your technical and commercial requirements.
