Festo VZXF valve for controlling liquid or gaseous flows
May 30, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
May 30, 2016 – Festo’s VZXF heavy-duty angle seat valves for process automation claim to perform “equally well” in controlling gaseous or liquid fluids in both closed and open operation.
The “extremely sturdy” poppet-style valve comes in brass or stainless steel casings to suit the requirements of the particular process. According to the company, it can be mounted in any position and is compatible with Festo external control. This 2/2-way valve series is particularly well suited for use with media such as vapour, high viscous fluids up to 600 mm2/s and slightly contaminated media. The VZXF comes in two versions: either closing in the direction of media flow for gaseous substances, or closing against the media flow for fluids.
