Use of InterApp butterfly valves in the exploration of Hyperloop technology
Over the next two decades, a worldwide doubling of passenger numbers in air traffic and a continuous increase in freight traffic are predicted. In order to meet the challenges ahead, passengers and goods will have to be transported quickly and efficiently, while at the same time reducing emissions.
In Switzerland, the EuroTube Foundation is researching on Hyperloop-technology, a new vacuum transport technology that combines the speed of an aeroplane with the ecological footprint of a train. The hyperloop shall reach speeds of up to 1000 km/h, connect city centres directly and use 100% purely electric green energy.
As part of the project, our InterApp Bianca butterfly valves are installed in the vacuum system and currently tested for vacuum suitability. We will follow the development with excitement and are proud to be involved in this fascinating project.
