Series VA combines a pneumatic actuator and fast on-off control valve into one body, eliminating packing glands, actuators and mounting kits. There are no exposed moving parts, eliminating pinch points and increasing operator safety. Operating life has been tested to more than 1,000,000 cycles because of a balanced design that reduces friction and wear. The stroke is linear and parallel to the flow, dramatically reducing the required force to close or open the valve. The internal waterway design was designed for optimum flow characteristics.
Developed for clean media applications (air drying, bottling, dispensing and plastic thermoforming equipment), bottling equipment, the pneumatic actuator/on-off control valve replaces angle valves and ball valves in many installations due to its reduction in size. It also replaces large solenoid valves where small orifices clog and diaphragms rupture.
