“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.
