ASCO Introduces Composite Solenoid Valve for Water Purification & Conditioning Applications

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, September 27, 2012 - ASCO Numatics, the world's leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced the 212 Series of composite solenoid valves that incorporate the new FasN™ universal connection system. The 212 Series has been designed specifically for water purification and conditioning systems in commercial and industrial applications.

“With the 212 Series, ASCO has perfected composite valve technology,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing - Americas, ASCO Numatics.

“This is the highly reliable, easy-to-install product the market has been waiting for. It solves the breakdown and reliability problems found in other types of composite valves and is available with one of the fastest delivery times in the industry.”

The 212 Series 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 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.

FasN - 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 new 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 212 Series is well suited for applications where exceptional quality, assured operation, and minimal service and warranty costs are essential,” said Kemple. “Now OEM’s can get the most reliable, easy-to-assemble composite valve, right now.”

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, or visit
