Linde

The transformation of volatile goods into solid KPIs

A prime example of how strategic design and smart technologies can drive a whole industry.

With the EVOS™ product family, the Linde Group sets standards in terms of ergonomics, safety and productivity in the gas cylinder valve segment. While the competition remains at industry standards, the Linde Group is breaking new ground with the launch of EVOS™ DCi. This valve is capable of providing live cylinder position information and gas information including gas type, gas volume, gas flow and even cylinder temperature. Through cloud based live data, customers have instant, device-independent access to up-to-date and historical gas information. Based on three years of extensive research followed by an intense, dedicated development program, the load capacity of the valves is more than industry standard. It has a lot of smart features that ensure products meet current and future needs. Real-time content metering makes the amount of gas visible at first glance. In addition, remote access to content and location information allows gas customers to optimize their inventory and supply chain management. Track-and-trace technology ensures complete compliance throughout the lifecycle. As a development partner, INDEED Innovation was responsible for concept, industrial design, engineering of the valve and the protective cage as well as the development of the entire ergonomic concept including the user interface. With the launch at EuroBlech 2016, the EVOS ™ DCI is a prime example of how strategic design and smart technologies can drive a whole industry.
