Criteria for Selecting Low-Temperature Valves are Outlined in New White Paper

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — August 6, 2013 — Selecting fluid automation devices for service in low ambient temperatures presents designers and specifiers with numerous difficult challenges, and cause serious operational and maintenance problems, and cost issues, all along the line.

A new white paper, “Cold Hard Facts: Five Key Criteria for Selecting Low-Temperature Valves,” examines five key qualities to examine when selecting valves, cylinders, and other fluid automation devices for application in low ambient temperatures.

The five criteria are: reliability, testing and compliance, selection variety, low-power capabilities, and support options. The paper is available for download from http://goo.gl/dp1xc.

During long, cold months, fluid automation products must perform well under harsh, frigid conditions, often unattended — and frequently at remote sites that render repair or replacement more difficult than usual. Even in warmer climates, cold storage or low temperature processing lines present special challenges for material flexibility and seal integrity.

As the white paper warns, the stakes are higher than ever when valve choices are considered.

Download the new whitepaper, “Cold Hard Facts: Five Key Criteria for Selecting Low-Temperature Valves,” from http://goo.gl/dp1xc. The paper is presented ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions.

New Brief Details Mission-Critical Availability of Fluid Automation Components

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — July 9, 2012 — When it comes to getting needed fluid automation parts, it’s convenient to receive them as soon as possible. But often, the need for speed can quickly become critical. For original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), such parts are often one of the last pieces added to a new equipment design — and their ready availability can impede timely delivery to customers. For end users, being forced to wait for a component can bring an entire process — or plant — to a standstill.

A new management brief — “When Quick Shipment Is Mission-Critical: Leveraging Fast Lead Times in Your Fluid Automation Supply Chain — explains the advantages gained by correctly leveraging supplier quick shipment throughout an operation. The brief demonstrates how, when it comes to fluid automation, using the right quick-ship program in the right ways can have an authentic impact on a business — and the bottom line. The paper is available to download from the ASCO website at http://goo.gl/cL7Sz and the Numatics website at http://goo.gl/kCCSq.

Implementing such programs can be more than a convenience for a company — and become an integral part of strategic operational planning for a company. The brief explains that the general advantages include saving time and resources, improving operational performance, gaining competitive advantage, optimizing the supply chain, and shortening purchasing times. The paper also describes the specific advantages for OEMs, such as cutting development cycles, accommodating late changes and shortening time to market — as well as the added benefits for end users, including avoiding shutdowns, reducing MRO inventories, and increasing asset availability.

The brief includes discussion of fluid control elements such as solenoid valves, angle body piston valves, redundant control systems, linear position indicators — and fluid power products such as valve manifolds, filters, regulators, lubricators (FRLs), cylinders, grippers, slides, and gantries.

The brief, “When Quick Shipment Is Mission-Critical: Leveraging Fast Lead Times in Your Fluid Automation Supply Chain,” is written by Marty Mincevich, Director of Marketing, ASCO Valve, Inc.; Mark Madsen, Director of Marketing, Numatics, Inc.; and Stephen Sick, Manager of Demand Planning, ASCO Valve, Inc. It is available for immediate download from the ASCO website at http://goo.gl/cL7Sz and the Numatics website at http://goo.gl/kCCSq.

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.
