EMERSON INTRODUCES 5/2 PILOT OPERATED SOLENOID VALVES FOR USE IN TEMPERATURES AS LOW AS -60°C
Emerson introduces the ASCO™ Series 551-553 pilot operated solenoid valves, featuring the ability for use in temperatures as low as -60°C, thus considerably expanding its application options for our customers in the process industry. Due to the increasing interest in oil and gas exploration in environments with extreme (arctic) conditions, this extension of the temperature range offers a reliable solution.
Moreover, these valves now have the possibility to control both single and double acting actuators. This is the first 5/2 pilot operated solenoid valve for double acting actuators that can operate at this low temperature level.
Customers can take advantage of the same excellent performance long service life, and safety certifications that the Series 551/553 always offers, and now even under extreme arctic conditions. These spool valves are available with the following certifications: ATEX, IECEX, UL, CSA and CUTR.
SIL3 certification is available as of June 2019.
