"Mischief or Life Skill?" an Aberdeen Success Story

Read about how a Robert Gordon University student used our valves in his Dissertation:

Zoedale Ltd is the preferred flow control supplier to a wide range of industries. We recently received an enquiry from a student at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen who was looking for a way to create his art installation as part of his dissertation. The work was an attempt to bring sport and physical activity into the art gallery space.

To quote GianPiero ‘’The piece ‘Mischief or life skill, 2015’ is offering an active way of learning. Once you have learned something you cannot unlearn it, you never know when a bit of mischief might come in useful ‘’

After discussing the specific requirements with GianPiero we created a valve package to be used within the artwork. We didn’t know exactly what GianPiero was going to create but we were thrilled to see it in action.

Take a look at the video below to see the award winning art piece:

The inner working of the artwork consist of a compressor, assorted connections and the crucial operational working part, the actuated ball valve. We supplied GianPiero with an Omal spring return pneumatically actuated nickel plated ball valve together with NAMUR mounted solenoid valve which provided maximum air flow to propel the football.

“The work could not have been made without your help, the 3-inch valve, was crucial in the end helping me gain the highest grade available, and not to mention the prizes!”
