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.

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.

ASCO Introduces Condensate Drain Valve Assemblies

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, USA, March 1, 2007 – ASCO, the world’s leading manufacturer of solenoid valves, today introduced a comprehensive line of condensate drain valve assemblies. The assemblies are designed specifically for use in compressed air systems where drainage of moisture is critical.

“Clean, dry, reliable compressed air is essential in today’s high-throughput manufacturing environments,” said Nicholas Buccheri, vice president, marketing, ASCO. “ASCO’s new condensate drain valve assemblies represent a significant improvement over ball valves. Our proven technology provides cycle after cycle of dependable performance, drives down maintenance costs, and ensures minimal system downtime.”

ASCO is offering two types of condensate drain valve assemblies to meet the requirements of virtually any compressor system application. Air-operated models incorporate a straight-through design with fewer components. This provides superior sealing and non-clog operation for lower cost and minimal maintenance. Solenoid-operated versions offer exceptional value, compact size, and longer life in high-temperature, high-humidity applications.

“Built with ASCO’s robust, high-quality electronics and renowned reliability, these condensate drain valve assemblies are ideal for compressed air systems used in manufacturing plants, automotive service stations and body shops, and transportation service center applications,” said Buccheri. “Smaller sizes can be installed in mobile compressed air systems where portability is essential.”

Condensate drain valves are used to remove water that develops in compressed air systems from changes in air temperature during the compression cycle. The condensate accumulates in pneumatic system receiver tanks, dryers, separators, and pre-filters. Failure to properly drain the condensate will result in air leakage, improper system operation, and additional maintenance.

Most valve assemblies with standard timer range, elastomer, and voltage are available for quick shipping as part of ASCO’s 5Day program.

In addition, customers can easily design ASCO’s condensate drain valve assemblies to meet their specific application with the company’s new electronic product configurator. Working online, a user can build a catalog number of a condensate drain valve unit. A CDV catalog can also be downloaded.
