Solenoid valve is explosion proof
The new high-flow high-speed EExd NAMUR series solenoid valves from Alcon are designed for use in hazardous areas and extreme environment applications. Offering universal 5/2 or 3/2 operations in offshore, processing and chemical industries, the series is ideal for piloting single or double actuators on NAMUR solenoid valves. An explosion proof, submersible, water tight and dust tight aluminium body suitable for indoor or outdoor use, along with Nitrile seals, ensures reliable operation while meeting requirements for a wide range of environments.
Alcon NAMUR series solenoid valves are designed for use with actuators controlling butterfly and ball valve systems in hazardous areas found in offshore, paper, recycling, food processing and chemical industries. A solenoid activated spool valve system allows for rapid response times of up to five cycles per second, and the duty cycle of the coil has been 100 percent continuously rated for a multimillion cycle life span.
The ATEX approved EExd hard-anodised IP67 aluminium solenoid enclosures feature two mounting holes and can be rotated through 360O to assist with fitting. Integrated exhaust ports allow users to manually convert from a 5/2 to a 3/2 configuration, as well as enabling variable speed control during 3/2 operation. With a manual override screw for ease of maintenance and repairs, the valves also feature a high flow design allowing for faster operation with larger valves.
