A solenoid valve is a combination of two basic functional units: a solenoid (electromagnet) with its core; and a valve body containing one or more orifices. Flow through an orifice is shut off or allowed by the movement of the core when the solenoid is energized or de-energized.
Solenoid valves come in a wide variety of sizes, port configurations, coil styles, coil voltages, materials and configurations. Proper selection for any given application can be confusing. This solenoid engineering guide is intended to offer the reader/specifier assistance in selecting the correct solenoid valve for the application.
ASCO is the worlds leading manufacturer of solenoid valves in the world. Tri-State Technical Sales is an authorized stocking distributor for ASCO with a huge inventory ready ready for same-day shipment.
Cleaning a ball valve without removing it from the process is a solution that keeps PBM on top of the world's valve market. PBM clean-in-place options can provide a solution to the problem of removing any residual product that may accumulate in the valve. Using steam the valve internals can be sterilized. With PBM's exclusive adjustable seating technology, cleaning agents or steam can be introduced into the valve in the closed position without interrupting the process.
Simply innovative clean-in-place and steam-in-place capabilities are desirable in applications where material can become trapped, or where it may be necessary to sanitize the valve with steam or a cleaning agent. PBM provides a solution with a combination of purge ports and a ball with milled flats or drain holes designed to suit specific application needs. Steam or cleaning solution may be introduced through a purge port in order to flush the body cavity before exiting via ball flats or additional ports.
