Hydraulics & Pneumatics

The VUVG valve from Festo is designed to achieve greater dynamics and up to 100 per cent more flow than other small valves for faster cycle times. Festo’s patented cartridge principle is the result of this valve’s excellent sealing properties. Its seal profile enables vacuum operation, very high flow rates and an extended pressure range of up to 10 bar. The cartridge principle enables a separated two-pressure operation. With the VUVG, there is no overlapping between the air ducts. A variable electrical connection concept reduces the complexity of ordering and warehousing for all users who require a valve with variable electrics. The patented electronics box can be replaced with just one click. The valve housing remains the same, only the connection option is changed.
