Festo solenoid valves and coils for the petroleum and chemical sectors. VOFC/VOFD solenoid valves and VACC solenoid coils increase process safety across system, cutting costs associated with failure and maintenance. They can be used in demanding applications and meet high safety standards.

The surface of the valve housing is treated with the Ematal process. Ematal anodizing creates a hard aluminum oxide layer with titanium oxide intercalations, which makes the valves resistant to wear and abrasion.

The 3/2- and 5/2-way VOFC/VOFD solenoid valves are intended for controlling and safe deactivation of pneumatic drives in potentially explosive areas of chemical and petrochemical plants.

NAMUR flange pattern makes the solenoid valves suitable for quarter-turn actuators. Integrated spring chamber ventilation function protects quarter-turn actuators with spring return against contaminated ambient air and weather influences. The solenoid coils from the VACC series are available for ignition protection types: Ex e mb, Ex ia, Ex db, and Ex d. Local and regional certifications are available.
