April 21, 2010 - Parker Fluid Control Division introduces the High Flow direct mount NAMUR solenoid valve for general-purpose valve actuator applications including water and sewage, pulp and paper, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, powder-dosing machines, powder transportation, process industry, and twin-tower air dryers.Compact in its design, the High Flow valve features a NAMUR mounting pattern and high-flow rates from 1.2 to 3.0 Cv. A spring return allows fail-safe operation in the event of a power loss, and a screened exhaust nut protects valve function during outdoor use. Additionally, the O-ring seal design increases sealing force at higher pressures and offers less breakaway resistance at lower pressures. Enjoying a long life expectancy of up to 5 million cycles, the High Flow valve has the potential to reduce maintenance needs. The High Flow Series complements Parkers specification grade 7300 Series product line. The latest addition to the line that is manufactured with ¼ NPT ports, the valve offers a conversion plate for 3/2, 5/2 operation. As a result, Parker Fluid Control Division guarantees a simplified ordering process, reduced inventory levels and quick delivery.The High Flow NAMUR Valve is built with an anodized aluminum body and a stainless steel spool, as well as internal parts made of brass. It is designed for direct mounting in any position on a NAMUR interface. As well, the High-Flow NAMUR Valve operates from a pressure range of 30 150 psi.These rugged valves are offered with class F DIN and Class H hazardous location coils. The valve operates at fluid temperature ranging from 32º 122º F. Hazardous coil enclosures meet FM and CSA agency approvals for Class 1: Groups A D and Class II: Groups E - G.
