SCO Numatics, a manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced a new family of ASCO modular gas safety shut-off valves with a compact double valve footprint and the industry’s highest flow rates. The valves are ideal for boilers, furnaces, ovens, heating equipment, gas generators, and kilns used in commercial and industrial applications.
“OEM design engineers can downsize their fuel trains by connecting two of our safety shut-off valves for an exceptionally small double valve footprint,” said Robert Kemple, executive vice president, sales and marketing, ASCO Numatics-Americas. “In addition, the valve’s very low pressure drop and extremely high flow capacity provide greater performance even in locations with low gas supply pressure.”
ASCO’s modular gas safety shut-off valves are available in two product families. The 8214(200) Series two-way normally closed solenoid valves can be used for fuel gases up to 5 psi. The V710(B)/AH(E) Series two-way normally closed electro-hydraulic actuated valves can be used with fuel gases up to 15 psi. This series is available with fast- and slow-opening constructions. Both product families come in 3/4’’ to 3’’ pipe sizes and have aluminum body constructions with pressure taps up and downstream.
“ASCO employed state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamic modeling and Finite Element Analysis to optimize the valves’ geometry,” said Kemple.
“This gives the valves their exceptional efficiency in a package with high flow, small envelope dimensions, and compact, joinable construction. Now OEMs can design their products for space restrictive applications, and reduce customer installation and maintenance costs,” he said.
