BÜRKERT’S new Type 6027 direct acting range of process solenoid valves is designed for use with neutral gases, fluids, steam, vacuum and slightly aggressive media at pressures up to 135bar and temperatures to +180 degrees C.
The modular design allows multiple variations of function, temperature range, coil rating, chemical resistance and approvals. “This simplifies valve selection for the user, providing the benefits of standardisation and a virtually unlimited combination of valve options,” says the company.
The Type 6027 is a direct-acting range of solenoid valves for shut-off, dosing, filling and ventilating tasks, and also for vacuum applications in pharmaceutical, food, water treatment and burner applications. Manufactured from brass or stainless steel (316L) bodies, EPDM, FKM or PTFE/PEEK seals, the series is designed for use with gases, steam, water, oils and mildly acidic or alkaline solutions. In addition, there is also an ‘oil and grease-free’ version for dry gases that can be used in oxygen and paint applications.
Improved performance comes from a direct acting design that uses the latest AC 19 coil technology, with optional integrated power boosters where required. The use of power boosting in the coil system offers various advantages: It delivers enhanced performance, due to the ability to switch higher pressures, the technology integrates diagnostic functions for fast fault detection, and third, the micro-size of the boosters delivers one of the most compact fluidic solutions for high flow rates.
The company adds: “In addition to optimising the operating costs of process installations, the modular design of the 6027 range offers planning-related benefits. The modular system makes it simple for the user to select the right combination of coil and housing to meet the exact performance characteristics of his system.”
The range can be tailored to specific user requirements to provide customised solutions.
