ASCO 551 SOLENOID VALVES

  • The ASCO 551 monostable spool valves in conformity with IEC 61508 Standard (2010 route 2H version) have TÜV certified with integrity levels: SIL 2 for HFT = 0 / SIL 3 for HFT = 1
  • All the exhaust ports of this spool valve are connectable, providing better environmental protection, particularly recommended for sensitive areas such as clean rooms, and applications in the pharmaceutical and food processing sectors
  • The solenoid valve offers environmental protection against the ingress of liquids, dusts or any other foreign matter (environmentally-protected construction)
  • Can be externally piloted (external air pilot supply) to convert valve to zero minimum operation by flipping a gasket
  • The solenoid valves satisfy all relevant EC Directives

Differential Pressure :    2 – 10, 4 bar [1 bar = 100kPA]

Flow (Qv at 6 bar): 860 l/min (ANR)
