What we do
The first application Aloxy developed is manual valve monitoring, which includes the IIoT platform, the low power wireless network as well as the sensors to capture the data.
The IIoT platform is required to accurately determine the valve position based on the sensor data and can be hosted in the cloud or on-premise. The platform offer functionality such as device management, network monitoring, data integrity and battery lifetime optimization.
The sensor communicates with the IIoT platform through a low-power wireless network. For this network Aloxy can use different protocols such as LoRaWAN or DASH7. There is no silver bullet technology, therefor depending on the application and site specifics, an analysis is done to select the proper network. Aloxy can provide gateways with specific unique capabilities to communicate LoRaWAN as well as DASH7 simultaneously. However, third party gateways can be used as well.
Aloxy focused to have an easy to install robust sensor for the chemical and oil and gas sector but it can be adapted to any valve. The sensor to capture the valve data is a unique solution for manual valves to monitor the position (open, closed and intermediate positions), location, temperature and vibration for all types of manual valves. The sensor can be mounted to the valve without alterations to the valve or any unique brackets or customization.

From startup to scale up
Aloxy was founded in 2017 to leverage technology developed at IMEC and the University of Antwerp and build concrete solutions for the process industry. The company is growing fast and the current team consist of 11 people and is continuously growing. The team has the characteristics of a typical startup, ambitious, flexible and creative however becoming a scale up as the technology has proven itself and the number of customers is growing.
Aloxy is a fine balance of experience in Valve Maintenance, Process Safety and Efficiency and software development in an environment where new things are created with a young and dynamic team.
Aloxy is based in the Beacon in Antwerp, together with other startups creating an energetic atmosphere were new ideas come to life.
