Festo introduces VZBE family of NPT ball valves

December 7, 2016 — Festo introduced an automated ball valve solution for process applications. This is the latest entry in a Festo development initiative of next generation actuators, sensors, and other accessories.

Festo automated ball valves feature the company’s VZBE ball valves, DFPD quarter turn actuators, VSNC NAMUR pilot valves, and the SRBC family of open/close sensor boxes. For proportional flow applications, Festo offers the CMSX digital positioner.

End users, OEMs, and engineering companies provide the Festo Customer Solutions group or Festo distributors with the requirements of the valve. Festo sizes the components and at the customer’s request provides all the pieces in a single box or ships a fully automated valve assembly ready for installation and wiring. A unique part number will be issued for ease of reordering and field support.

The VZBE family of NPT ball valves is available in a two-way or three-way design. With a 316 stainless steel body and Teflon seats, these valves are rated up to 1,000 psi and 400° Fahrenheit (200° C). For sanitary environments, Festo also offers the 3A approved VZBD ball valve family with tri-clamp and welding connections. And for fire-safe applications, the API607 approved VZBF is available with ANSI flange connections.
