A group of four UTC Swindon students studying for their BTEC Level 3 in Engineering, have been invited to work alongside members of the RotaVal team to design and create an exhibition valve with moving parts.
The HDM150 valve will be used for exhibitions by RotaVal and the Gericke Group around the world and will also be used for training of new staff, agents and distributors.
As the Chair of Governors at UTC Swindon, RotaVal’s Managing Director, Beverley Ford, is a strong advocate of workplace based education and is thrilled that the students are going to be a part of this project.
We are looking forward to seeing and exhibiting the finished product next summer.
Rota Val is a successful company based on the skills of its people. They produce high specification Rotary Valves with clearances of <0.25mm, as the tighter the clearance, the less air leakage and the better performance of the valve. They design and build all valves at their site in Wiltshire.
