ASCO Numatics introduced its ASCO 364 Series spool valve for control panel applications in the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry. The new valve combines compact construction with low-power options that feature higher operating pressures and temperature ratings than competitive models.
“ASCO’s new spool valve incorporates rugged 316L stainless steel construction and our proven solenoid valve technology for the greatest corrosion resistance and highest reliability in harsh upstream exploration and production environments”, said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing – Americas, ASCO Numatics. “The valves are designed for drop-in replacement and compatibility with most existing control panel applications, and popular versions are available through our ASCO SAME-DAY and ASCO 5-Day quick-shipping programmes. This makes them ideal for maintenance programmes that require long-lived products with rapid delivery”, he said.
The 364 Series valve line includes low-power (1.4W and 1.8W) solenoid options that consume less energy than competitive products. They also are available with higher operating pressures (150psi) and temperature ratings (200°F). The 364 Series spool valve is offered in a wide range of manual, pneumatic, and solenoid options and is backed by ASCO’s global technical and application support.
