ASCO Numatics are one of the leading names in the pneumatic component industry, and a
manufacturer we at BL Pneumatics are delighted to supply a number of products from. They
have recently released a white paper entitled ‘Six Breakthrough Advantages of New Steam
Valve Technology’ that we thought we’d take a closer look at.
The latest solenoid-based valves that control steam and hot water flow offer many advantages
over their predecessors, which can have a positive impact upon both flow rate and the
lifespan of the product. They detailed the six advantages of their new steam valve
technology as the following;
Higher Flow - Flow rates can be improved by 20-60% with the new technology utilised in
Longer Life - High temperatures and pressure have had an impact on lifespan in the past,
however this new generation solenoid valve has demonstrated vast improvements in this area.
Easier Maintenance - Heavy duty bolts made older model valves more difficult to maintain,
yet the new versions benefit from hardwearing threads that can unscrew quickly and easily
to make maintenance access far more straightforward.
Quieter Operation - New steam valve designs benefit from DC construction so can therefore
eliminate the AC hum that used to be an issue with so many of the previous models.
Reduced Inventories - Whereas separate valves would be required for use with steam and hot
water previously, the latest models are designed to work in both circumstances so you can
lower the numbers you need to order and in turn reduce inventories.
Lower Cost - No more expensive to buy than their older counterparts, when the ability
to order fewer yet maintain the same level of function, the longer lifespan and reduced
energy consumption are taken into consideration, significant savings can be made with
the new solenoid valves.
