Festo introduces the standard NAMUR valve VSNC, certified worldwide in accordance with the relevant explosion protection standards.
The standard NAMUR valve VSNC finds versatile application in diverse industry segments and features a modern design, durable quality and fully tested technology and materials.
Designed to deliver an attractive price/performance ratio, the new NAMUR valves from Festo can efficiently and reliably control the flow of a wide range of media in different ambient conditions, including liquids, bulk goods or gases within the fine chemicals, pharmaceutical, water technology and food production industries.
The valve’s versatility comes from a broad choice of valve functions and an extended temperature range of -20°C to +60°C.
The new pilot valve can be easily adapted for use with a single-acting or double-acting actuator for even greater flexibility. For instance, a 5/2-way valve can be converted into a 3/2-way valve by simply turning the seal round 180 degrees. In the 3/2-way valve, exhaust air is fed via the seal into the spring chamber of the actuator to protect the spring chamber from contaminated ambient air and guarantee a longer service life for the pneumatic actuator.
Festo’s ATEX accessories and IEC Ex-certified solenoid systems for zones 1 and 2 and systems certified in accordance with NEC 500 for Class 1 Div. 1 and Div. 2 are specially made for environments with potentially explosive atmospheres.
Key features of Festo’s standard NAMUR valve VSNC include rotatable seal for 3/2- or 5/2-way function; wide choice of EX solenoid systems; robust and capable of high flow rates; suitable for a broad range of applications; extended temperature range; and excellent price/performance ratio.
