ASCO: Zoned Safety Capabilities in Numatics 503 Series Valve Manifold

ASCO Manifold Zoned SafetyASCO has introduced the capability to integrate multiple safety zones within a single Numatics 503 Series valve manifold. This new zoned safety approach helps the design engineer satisfy the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and comply with ISO 13849-1 while eliminating the components and complexity found in discrete safety circuits.

The zoned safety concept is an integrated approach to machine safety and control that greatly simplifies the design of a redundant pneumatic safety circuit with a manifold system. The Numatics 503 Series can create up to three independent electro-pneumatic safety zones, while also allowing independent non-safe sections to co-exist within one manifold assembly. The operator does not have to shut down the entire machine by releasing compressed air with a redundant safety/control dump valve. Instead, the Numatics 503 Series valve manifold can be configured to shut down air and power only to the group of valves that controls the machine’s motion in the operator’s vicinity.

Val-Matic: Air Valve Sizing Software

Val Matic AirValveSoftwareScreenShotVal-Matic’s AirValve Sizing Program is a web-based software program designed to aid in selecting Air Valves along a pipeline. Users are able to enter and save design information specific to their pump, water pipeline or wastewater forcemain to calculate the locations and sizes of AWWA Air Valves. The program will also calculate the collapse pressure, slope and gravity flow in the pipe. Recommendations are given for Air Valve locations, sizes and model numbers for pipeline and pump discharge locations. To use the software, visit www.valmatic.com.  

DeZURIK: Valve Selection Guide

DeZurik Valve Selection GuideDeZURIK has released a new Valve Selection Guide, designed to assist users with the valve selection process. The guide helps users navigate DeZURIK’s complete valve product line, based on valve type, general specifications, common media and applications by industry. Specific industry applications included in the guide are for pulp & paper; mining & minerals processing; chemical & petrochemical; water & wastewater; power & hydropower; and food & beverage.

The guide’s selection chart uses color-coded ratings to categorize each valve style’s general usage in a particular application: Not Used, Limited Application, May Be Used, Typical Application and Maximum Performance. The chart considers both cost and performance factors for a specific application when determining its rating.

Conval: New Camseal Zero-Leakage Ball Valve Brochure Available

Conval eNews 1.20.16An updated brochure on Camseal top-entry, zero-leakage forged high-performance ball valves is now available from Conval. The full-color, information-packed brochure contains descriptions of key design features and benefits; lists of materials; technical drawings; summaries of testing results; U.S. and metric dimensions; sizing charts by type of forging, temperature and pressure class; operating torques for liquids and gas.

Camseal stand-alone and actuated ball valves are ideal for severe service applications. Valves are available in ½” through 4” sizes with top entry, socket weld, butt weld, and flanged ends. Pressure classes range from ASME 900 through 4500. N and NPT stamped valves are available for nuclear applications. All valves are manufactured in the U.S.A. to rigorous global QA qualifications including ASME, ISO 9001, PED, API Q1, IBR, PCT Gost-R and RCC-M. As a result, Camseal ball valves offer exceptionally reliable and long life far beyond industry standards. Top-entry, cartridge-style Camseal ball valves are easy to inspect, maintain and repair. In-line renewability is typically accomplished within 30-minutes in the event of process application abuse. The cartridge is easily removed for on-site parts replacement, reassembly and re-installation. No welding is required, which is especially important for valves made of F91 Stainless Steel and specialty metals. F91 is extremely sensitive to hardness and heat, making welding a sensitive operation.
