March 4, 2015 - Festo’s new VSNC series of standard solenoid NAMUR valves is two valves in one that suit a wide range of process applications. By simply turning its seal 180°, it converts easily and quickly from a 5/2-way valve into a 3/2-way valve, making it equally well-suited for use with a single-acting or a double-acting pneumatic actuator. In 3/2-way mode, exhaust air is fed via the seal into the spring chamber of the actuator. This protects the chamber from contaminated ambient air and guarantees a longer service life for the actuator.
January 6, 2015 – KIRK Eagle series valve interlocking products provide process safety control in hydrogen cooled generator purging operations. The company’s Eagle series trapped key valve interlocking systems ensure that users follow a pre-determined sequence of operation for startup and maintenance on generators in power stations, refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial applications. KIRK Eagle series valve interlocks integrate with its mechanical and electromechanical trapped key interlock series to form a comprehensive process safety scheme.
