“Five Critical Factors for Selecting Fieldbus Valve Manifolds” — New White Paper from Numatics, Inc.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — May 10, 2011 — Fieldbus valve manifolds are replacing conventional hardwired solutions on a variety of highly automated machines in a wide variety of applications and industries. A new white paper, “Five Critical Factors For Selecting Fieldbus Valve Manifolds,” from Numatics, Inc., guides original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users in the selection of the best solutions for their given applications.
The paper is available for download from http://www.numatics.com.
“Fieldbus valve manifolds find wide utility in packaging, automotive/tire, and material handling applications, as well as in the pharmaceutical, chemical, water, and wastewater industries,” said white paper author Enrico De Carolis, director of technology development at Numatics, Inc.
In the white paper, De Carolis presents the five crucial factors that controls engineers, specifiers, and buyers must consider before selecting pneumatic fieldbus valve manifolds — commissioning, distribution, modularity, diagnostics, and recovery — while outlining the shortcomings of conventional approaches.
In addition, De Carolis also discusses new designs that offer substantial improvements in the application, performance, and maintenance of these valve manifolds from the end users’ and OEMs’ points of view.
“Fieldbus valve manifolds more easily perform vital functions by integrating communication interfaces to pneumatic valve manifolds with input/output (I/O) capabilities. This allows programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to more efficiently turn valves on and off and to channel I/O data from sensors, lights, relays, individual valves, or other I/O devices via various industrial networks. The resulting integrated control packages can also be optimized to allow diagnostic benefits not previously available,” he said.

Numatics Knife Gate Valve Actuator Offers Mounting Customization Without Extending Delivery Times

numatics21NOVI, MICHIGAN, U.S.A., April 6, 2010 – ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced the Numatics KG Series knife gate valve actuator line. The KG Series is the first knife gate valve actuator that offers the flexibility for fully customizable mounting without extending lead times.

knifegate_shot_ad“Customers can tailor our KG Series actuators specifically to their valve’s mounting requirements while still benefitting from Numatics’ industry-leading delivery times,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing – Americas, ASCO Numatics. “Now, project engineers requiring fast lead times will not have to incur additional cost and time making their valves fit to standard actuators’ specifications.”

The KG Series line expands ASCO Numatics’ capability to offer all of the components for knife gate valve automation solutions. Customers can buy both the directional control air valve and valve actuator from one global supplier and benefit from ASCO Numatics’ worldwide sales and technical support.

The new knife gate valve actuator is ideal for the harshest process applications in the chemical, food and beverage, mining, oil and gas, petrochemical, wastewater treatment, and power industries.

Customers can specify mounting hole locations and rod styles for KG Series actuators without lengthening leads times. Actuators with 1.5-inch to 10-inch bore sizes are available in 2 to 3 weeks while models with 12-inch and 14-inch bores are available in 3 to 4 weeks.

The KG Series comes with ASCO Numatics’ global reputation for quality. Its proprietary wear band improves cylinder life by locating piston load at the optimum point and providing maximum column strength at full extension. In addition, the actuator’s popular composite tubing option significantly reduces overall cylinder weight for smoother operation and longer life.

“The KG Series is the ideal choice for design and project engineers desiring the most reliable knife gate actuators with customized mounting options and rapid delivery,” said Kemple.

New ASCO Low-Power Solenoid Valves Feature .55 watt Power Consumption, High Reliability

asco-num-01

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, USA, March 18, 2010ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced an ASCO low-power solenoid valve series that offers .55 watt power consumption while providing highly reliable operating performance.

The new valve is ideal for process applications in the refining, upstream oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and power generation industries.

“ASCO’s new low-power valve is an attractive choice for project and application engineers designing processing systems in remote locations or who want to install more devices on their bus networks,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing – Americas, ASCO Numatics. “No other solenoid valve on the market delivers higher performance per watt.”

The new solenoid valve is an optimal solution for applications powered by renewable energy sources such as solar panels. Its low-power consumption permits the use of smaller battery packs and enables extended operation on the existing back-up energy source.

The low-power valve is designed to be wired directly into a plant’s bus network I/O interface without the need for auxiliary power source. This means more discrete devices can be installed on a network segment. In addition, on PLC or DCS installation using traditional wiring the need for an additional relay is eliminated, plus a smaller power supply can be used – reducing the installation and operating costs.

The highly flexible valve comes in multiple options for flow efficiency and maximum and minimum temperature and pressure ratings. It has ATEX, FM, CSA, and UL approvals and is SIL-3 certified.

“Our new valve combines ASCO’s renowned reliability and availability with the industry’s lowest power consumption levels to offer an exceptional flow control solution that can accommodate virtually any low-power application,” said Kemple.

ASCO low-power solenoid valves can be purchased from ASCO distributors or directly from the company. Many of the valve’s configurations are available through the ASCO Today or ASCO 5-day shipping programs.
