Breakthroughs in Steam Valve Technology Are Outlined in New White Paper

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — August 7, 2012 — A new white paper details recent major breakthroughs in steam valve technology and how— by choosing the right next-generation steam valve — to achieve dramatic performance improvements such as 60% higher flow rates, four times longer life, and more in a wide variety of applications.

The new white paper, titled “Seven Breakthrough Advantages of New Steam Valve Technology,” is available for download from http://goo.gl/cL7Sz.

Solenoid-based valves that control the flow of steam and hot water are critical components for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users of commercial and industrial laundry, sterilizer, boiler, dishwasher, and food preparation equipment. Until recently, specifiers and users of even the best traditional valve technology had to accept certain limitations — such as relatively restricted throughput, comparatively short valve life, and time-consuming maintenance or replacement.

The white paper discusses how a host of new approaches and technologies, incorporated into a new generation of steam valve products, are dramatically improving performance factors. The paper reports the newest designs combine several features proven to offer significant benefits in traditional valves, such as threaded bonnets, a floating PTFE diaphragm, and a zerominimum operating differential design. They also add innovative new approaches — such as optimized geometry, DC construction, and a lower power coil.

In contrast to established flow control components, these advantages can significantly impact core attributes such as flow rates and product life, according to the paper. As a result, OEM specifiers and end users who choose the right valve can enjoy dramatically more efficient and reliable service than ever before.

Seven Breakthrough Advantages of New Steam Valve Technology,” was written by Anne-Sophie Kedad-Chambareau, Valve Product, Marketing Manager, ASCO, and Gerry Longinetti, Marketing Manager, ASCO. It is available for immediate download on the ASCO Valve website at http://goo.gl/cL7Sz.

ASCO Introduces Stainless Steel Pilot Valves for Offshore Applications

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, U.S.A., August 9, 2011 – ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced the 8361 Series of stainless steel pilot valves. The series’ unique design eliminates the dormancy or “sticking” problems that can occur in control valves installed in the pneumatic logic panels that control monitoring safety systems in offshore oil and gas production facilities. In addition, the valve line was launched with online tools that permit rapid product configuration and ordering.

“Corrosion-resistance and reliability are essential for safe operation in harsh offshore environments,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing – Americas, ASCO Numatics. “The 8361 Series’ innovative, highly reliable, and proven T-seal technology resists the dormancy issues that plague current valves using O-ring seals. O-ring designs can stick upon actuation in low-cycle demand control valve applications. Our research shows that many users routinely hammer the sides of these valves to ensure they function properly,” said Kemple.

The 8361 Series (¼-inch NPT, 3-way, 316L stainless steel) valves are offered in manually operated, air-piloted, and solenoid-piloted versions. They can be configured as breathing and nonbreathing. The non-breathing version isolates internal components from the atmosphere and is internally vented, preventing contaminants such as salt and dust to enter the valve and corrode internal components.

The valve’s balanced design maintains the same flow characteristics when the valve is used in a normally open or normally closed configuration. This provides symmetrical flow that enables more flexible setup of the control panel’s pneumatic logic. The 1.4 Cv provides almost double the flow of comparable spool technology. In addition, the valve’s innovative pilot-selector design allows the same unit to be used as an internally or externally piloted solenoid valve, simplifying ordering and reducing inventory.

The 8361 Series’ solenoid version comes with ASCO’s renowned RedHat solenoid – recognized as the most reliable in the industry. Its 0.55-watt power consumption is three times less than competitive valves.

“Every aspect of this valve has been designed for the highest reliability, minimal maintenance, and lowest cost of ownership,” said Kemple. “For example, the valve’s body is made entirely of 316L stainless steel, and the Elgiloy® and stainless steel spring is designed for corrosion resistance and severe service beyond 1 million cycles.”

Online Tools Enables Rapid Configuration and Ordering

An 8361 Series online toolset is available that allows customers to quickly build a valve that meets a set of specific requirements. It then displays the list price, availability, 3D CAD drawings, and specifications for the configured product. The configurator generates an order code for the valve that permits an immediate online purchase, plus greatly simplifies the reordering process.

The 8361 Series valves can be purchased from ASCO distributors or directly from the company. Most of the valve’s configurations are available through the ASCO Today or 5-day shipping programs.

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.
