Challenge
The customer was looking for an economical and simplified valve actuation solution that would help maintain plant uptime while making installation simple.

Solution
ASCO supplied intrinsically safe 551 and 553 series solenoid valves  in a control cabinet. The cabinet also included 316 stainless steel ball valves and safety shut off valves and an ASCO Filter Regulator.

Benefits

  • ​Reduced commissioning time and installation costs due to turnkey cabinet solution that was supplied pre-wired and piped with bulkhead connections.

  • Less downtime due to the “non-breathing” design of the valves.  This means that in normal operation no external – unfiltered – air is allowed to enter the valve. The admittance of air from the environment, which may contain dust can be a source of increased friction which may cause the valve to fail.

  • Installing the valves in a cabinet protects them from accidental damage which can often be a cause of premature failure and downtime.
