August 29, 2010 - The NITRA line now includes several new series of products to help meet a broad range of pneumatic air supply pressure regulation and filtration applications. While each series is designed to work in stand-alone applications, the modular design enables field assembly for combining additional components.The AF Series particulate and moisture separation air filters are available with 1/8 to 1-inch NPT female port sizes and either a semi-automatic or automatic drain. Polycarbonate bowls are standard on 1/8 through ¬Ω-inch sizes, while metal bowl guards are provided on ¬º through ¬Ω-inch sizes. The ¬æ-inch and 1-inch sizes feature all-metal bowl construction with sight gauges. Prices start at $11.25.NITRA AR Series pneumatic air pressure regulators are available with adjustable pressure ranges of 20-130 psi or 7-60 psi. These regulators feature a locking pressure adjustment knob and integral pressure gauge. The AR series prices start at $17.00.The AFR Series combines particulate/moisture separation air filters and adjustable pressure regulators, all in a single convenient unit. Available in 1/8-inch through one-inch sizes, the pressure regulator features a locking pressure adjustment knob, integral pressure gauge with adjustable pressure ranges of 20 -115 psi. AFR Series prices start at $23.00.AL Series mist-type air lubricators are available with 1/8-inch to one-inch NPT female port sizes and a lubrication rate adjustment with sight gauge. The ¬æ-inch and one-inch sizes feature all-metal bowl construction with sight level gauges. AL Series prices start at $12.25.Replaceable 40 micron filter elements are standard. When stricter filtration is required, an optional, customer-installable, five- micron filter element is available for $1.00.NITRA ARV pneumatic manual shut-off pressure relief valves are available with 1/8-inch to ¬Ω-inch female ports. The three-way, two-position design is used to shut off upstream pressure and relieve downstream pressure. The manually rotated knob can be locked out with the included padlock. ARV prices start at $19.75.Three new series of directional control solenoid valves are also available. Solenoid coils for each series are available in either 24 VDC or 120 VAC control voltages. The available single-solenoid models provide two-position, normally closed, spring return operation and double-solenoid models provide two-position, energize open/energize closed operation. DIN-style wiring connectors feature LED indication of solenoid coil status. AVP series three-way stackable poppet-style valves, starting at $16.75, can be used in individual valve applications or, to simplify piping connections, multiple valves can be field assembled to share supply air. AVS-3 series valves, starting at $19.75, are body ported three-port (three-way) spool valves with port sizes up to 3/8-inch NPT and flow coefficients (Cv) from 0.78 to 1.67.AVS-5 series body ported five-port (four-way) spool valves start at $19.75 and are available with port sizes up to 3/8-inch NPT and a flow coefficient (Cv) range of 0.67 to 0.89. In addition, AVS-5 double solenoid models are available with three-position, center closed or center exhaust operation. For multiple-valve applications, AM-5 series manifolds are available in 2, 4, 6 or 8 stations (starting at $9.25).
