Solenoid valves are electromechanically operated on/off devices used to control the flow of fluids. A valve plug is held in place by a spring. When the solenoid is energized, the current moves through the coil generating an electromagnetic force that opposes the spring, causing the plug to change position. When the power is switched off, the spring returns the plug to its former position. Some solenoid valves require differential pressure and must be designed to handle the demanding applications of industrial process control. As a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of solenoid valves, ASCO Valves offer fast and safe switching, high reliability, long service life, low control power and compact design.
ASCO Valve, the leader in the design and manufacture of solenoid valves, offer the following application specific series of valves:
General Service Solenoid Valves
Known for long life and fast response time, ASCO General Services Valves are available in multiple configurations. The ASCO RedHat brand offers the world’s largest selection of 2-way, 3-way and 4-way solenoid valves, designed to handle the most demanding flow control of air, water, oil and steam.
Asco's innovative low power management technology sets new industry standards for reliability and power consumption. The new line of solenoid valves is available in both AC or DC voltages and improves performance while reducing energy costs.
Asco Valves hot water and steam valves rugged construction stand up to the harsh media and the environmental conditions of hot water and steam service applications. These valves are ideal for high temperature fluid applications and designed for high flow capacity and long life with normally closed and normally open configurations.
Combustion fuel gas and fuel oil solenoid and motorized shutoff valves by ASCO control the flow of fuel gas, liquid propane, and all grades of fuel oil. These valves are ideal for high capacity gas flow and emergency gas/fuel shutoff.
ASCO Cryogenic Solenoid Valves are built with specially designed material to withstand the most severe applications with cryogenic liquids such as liquid oxygen, liquid argon, liquid nitrogen and liquid CO2.
Designed for use in dust collector systems, ASCO Dust Collector valves provide high-flow, fast-opening 2-way valves for pulsing air into filter bags to remove particulates. ASCO's new Power Pulse patented flow path is engineered for very high flow, trouble-free maintenance and simple installation.
ASCO Scientific Micro-miniature solenoid valves are manufactured with the highest quality materials to control analytical and medical instrumentation fluids as well other applications. They are ideal where small size, low power and long life are a must.
The ASCO 8290 Angle Body Piston Valve is manufactured with a pneumatic spring-return piston actuator that is ideal for on/off and flow control applications as well as an excellent alternative to automated ball valves. These long life, low maintenance valves are equipped with a streamlined flow path and a reliable spring-loaded stem seal resulting in high flow rates and long life integrity.
Asco Valve accessories used for valve automation and process control. Including adjustable flow control valves, strainers, quick exhaust/shuttle valves, check valves, connectors, and exhaust breathers.
