ASCO Introduces Stainless Steel Pilot Valves for Offshore Applications

asco 8361 seriesASCO Numatics 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.

 

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.
