ASCO Numatics has introduced a new line of ASCO Harsh environment valves. This series is designed for use in harsh and hazardous locations, including control panels in offshore applications such as oil platforms where the environment is extremely hot, humid, and corrosive. The new solenoid valve series is also suitable for use with solar panels and PLC/DCS applications where low power consumption is required. The new Harsh environment valves are made out of 316L stainless steel material for maximum corrosion resistance and are available with 0.55 or 1.30 watt coils, as well as high flow and quick exhaust constructions, with pressure ranting ranging from 0 to 150PSI. The valve also features high flow constructions with a 1.1 Cv pressure port and 1.4 Cv exhaust port for larger valves and actuators.
