Customer Success Story - Process valve control in low temperature environment


Application

Challenge
The extremely low temperatures on site can have a negative effect on the operation of actuator controls.  To ensure the valves operate when required the customer was looking for a solenoid valve that was rated for a temperature of -60 deg C. It was also important that the solenoid valves could be tested on site to ensure they would function when required.

Solution
ASCO supplied solenoid valves in a cabinet. The 327 series direct acting valves are suitable for use in temperatures as low as -60°C, and are available with ATEX, CUTR and IECEx certification. The cabinet included functionality that enabled the solenoid valve operation to be verified on site.

Benefits

  • Reduced costs because the cabinet did not need to include heating elements.

  • Reduced installation time and costs as the cabinet was provided as a turnkey solution.

  • Peace of mind because the in-situ validation meant that the user could be assured the valves would operate when required.
