Ball valves can be very similar when viewed from the outside, but sometimes they differ greatly in their internal workings. In the future we will therefore document our customer-specific ball valve data in a digital life cycle file. This includes product specifications and production history, description of equipment condition (assembled actuators etc.), maintenance information as well as acceptance and test reports. For our service technicians on site, the file is quickly available via WEB portal. This also allows our customers easy access to relevant information. A QR code serves as a link between the digital file and the specific ball valves.
