Pilot valves are tough for harsh environments

Pilot valves are tough for harsh environments

Festo has launched a new robust pilot valve – the VOFD – for process automation applications.  The valve is exceptionally tough and provides excellent performance even in harsh environments found in the pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical and oil and gas industries, enabling operations managers to improve uptime and productivity.

The valve is perfect for actuation of butterfly valves, cylinders, diaphragm drives and rotary drives.  It is also ideal for emergency shut-down functions and for safety-orientated systems up to Safety Integrity Level 4 (SIL 4) as per IEC 61508. The VOFDs have a titanium dioxide plated surface which guarantees a high abrasion resistance and makes it extremely resilient within highly aggressive and chemical atmospheres. It is also available with several Ex-protection methods.
