Miniature solenoid valves deliver high flow rates
01 July 2006
Norgren's FAS series of 10 and 15mm miniature solenoid valves are now available in the UK. Designated Picosol (10mm) and Microsol (15mm) this Swiss engineered range of valves is reliable, durable and proven in a wide variety of applications such as piloting, water quality monitoring, printing, sanitation, medical, packaging and automation. Suitable for use with a wide variety of media, the valves can also be utilised with aggressive gases and liquids.
Both valve sizes offer high flow rates, the Picosol capable of delivering 32 litre/min and the Microsol delivering 194 litre/min. Life expectancy is in excess of 100 million cycles and, depending on the model chosen, they offer fast response times in the range 8 and 10ms. Microsol and the Picosol are also available as pre-assembled, ready to use valve manifolds: the VE10 (10mm) and the VE15 (15mm).
Norgren can also supply a pilot-operated valve in this series - the Microsol Interface - which utilises the standard Microsol unit as the pilot. The arrangement is essentially a pneumatic amplifier that produces high flow rates and is capable of competing with much larger valves.
