ASCO Extends Composite Solenoid Valve Offering to Include 3/8” and 1” Pipe Sizes

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, U.S.A., April 17 2014 - ASCO Numatics, the world's leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has extended its 212 series offering to include 3/8” and 1” pipes sizes that incorporate the FasN TM universal connection system. The 212 Series has been designed specifically for water purification and conditioning systems in commercial and industrial applications.

The entire 212 Series, including the the 3/8” and 1” valve has the highest pressure and temperature ratings on the market – up to 150 psi and 180°F. Its robust, lightweight engineered plastic body has been built and tested to achieve up to 1 million operating cycles.

The composite valve 212 Series has been tested and certified by NSF International: NSF 61 Annex G (drinking water), NSF 169 (special purpose food equipment and devices), and NSF 372 (lead-free). It also has been tested and certified against NSF Standard 42 for materials and structural requirements. The NSF certification program is accredited by the Standard Council of Canada and ANSI. This valve design meets the requirements of section 1417 of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).

In addition most of the 212 Composite Valve Series are available through the ASCO 5Day shipping program.

FasN TM - the world's first universal valve connection system

The 212 Series comes with ASCO's new FasN universal connection system - the world's fastest, most secure valve connection technology. With FasN, the valve quickly connects to any type of fitting - NPT, quick-connect, and solvent-bond - for the most rapid assembly, lowest cost, and greatest design flexibility.

The ASCO composite valve is ideal for the following reverse-osmosis and misting applications:

  • Food and beverage - offers superior taste and increased cost savings
  • Restaurants - improves steamer operations
  • Grocery stores - prevents scaling in vegetable misters
  • Humidification - reduces scaling and dusting
  • Boilers - increases energy efficiency
  • Water jet cutting - improves operating efficiencies and extends orifice life

The ASCO 212 Series valves can be purchased from ASCO distributors or directly from the company. For more information, contact ASCO at 800-972-ASCO, by e-mail at
