Low Temperature Solenoid Valve and Filter Regulator Complete ASCO’s Range of Products for Arctic Environments​


ASCO's offering of low temperature solutions for actuator control can be used in temperatures down to -60˚C.

With a trend towards the exploitation of oil reserves in harsh environments, the requirement for actuator controls that can cope with extremely low temperatures has increased.  The launch of a low temperature version of ASCO's direct operated solenoid valve and stainless steel Filter Regulator now sees a complete range of low temperature products available from one supplier.  Suitable for use in temperatures down to -60˚C, the range includes a direct operated 3/2 solenoid valve, a 3/2 - 5/2 solenoid operated spool valve and a selection of Filters and Filter Regulators.

"In order to exploit oil and gas reserves that are located in extreme environments our customers are looking for a range of low temperature products to control their actuators." Said Peter Evans, ASCO's Business Development Director for the process industries.  "Each of our low temperature products have been designed and rigorously tested to overcome our customers' needs associated with these environments."

Available for use down to -60˚C are a robust stainless steel Filter Regulator and a proven in use direct operated solenoid valve, used to control the opening or closing of spring return actuators.  Offering reliable operation down to -40˚C is a compact aluminium solenoid operated spool valve which could be used on spring return or double acting actuators, and an aluminium Filter, Regulator, Lubricator – which also features one of the highest flow rates on the market. The aluminium FRL is available down to -40ºC as an option.

Products for the process industry feature key global certifications, which among others include ATEX, SIL, IECEx and CUTR for use in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus.
