Selecting the Right Valve Types to Improve Process Cooling: New ASCO Whitepaper

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., July 22, 2015 — Help for engineers with selecting the right valve types to help improve process cooling throughout a range of industries is available in a new whitepaper that uses winemaking to illustrate the suggested tradeoffs and advantages involved in optimum valve selection.

The new paper, “Great Wine Coolers: Selecting valves to improve process cooling in winemaking and other industries,” explains that while the cooling process in industrial winemaking is fairly straightforward, it can highlight how valves can function as surprisingly important ingredients in improving a wide variety of process cooling applications.

Key takeaways from the whitepaper include:

  • The multiple choices in selecting valve types for any type of industrial cooling application
  • Diaphragm valves are popular and affordable; may encounter plugging problems
  • Ball valves avoid plugging; are relatively expensive and maintenance-intensive
  • Angle-body piston valves are slightly more expensive than diaphragm valves; offer exceptionally long life
  • An exclusive direct-acting temperature control valve, though initially expensive, provides ultimate economy and most advanced control

ASCO Introduces Mobile App to Enable Customers to Quickly Calculate Flow for a Valve and Locate a Distributor

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, USA, February 3, 2015 —- ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced a mobile application for iPhone and Android Devices.

The application, available by searching “ASCO Flow Calculator” within either the Apple App or Google Play store, allows the user to download the mobile app at no charge. The ASCO mobile app features the ASCO Flow Calculator, which enables customers to quickly calculate flow for a valve or determine the Cv needed to properly size a valve. In addition, the Fluid Guide provides reference information on the types of valves available for most common corrosive and non-corrosive gases and liquids.

Additional features of the mobile app include the Where to Buy Distributor locator. Customers can now locate domestic and international ASCO distributors (both Authorized Valve Distributors and Combustion Product Distributors). Customers can search by zip or city/state or search by GPS location (when Location Services are enabled). Results provide the distributor’s phone, fax, email, and website information (when applicable).

The ASCO mobile app also features an interactive Conversion tool that quickly converts between metric and imperial values. It includes nine conversion calculators for Area, Energy, Flow, Length, Pressure, Temperature, Velocity, Volume and Weight.

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.
