Global pneumatics specialist Norgren has extended its range of in-line valves that, the company claims, feature higher flow rates than any other valve of the same body and port size. The V60 Series inline valves employ stainless steel spools and static seals, helping to increase flow rates and cycle life. Smallest in the line-up is the V60, with an impressive flow rate of 750l/min for a 1/8 ported body. Next is the V61 offering 1,400l/min, for a 1/4 ported body, the V62 has a flow rate of 2,600l/min for a 3/8 ported body and the biggest of the family – the V63 – has a 1/2 ported body and is capable of 4,400l/min. With a long cycle life of 50 million operations, the V60 Series has many innovative attributes, as well as standard features such as 3/2, 5/2 & 5/3 valve functions and a wide range of voltage options. One of these innovations is that the fixed length 2- and 3-station manifolds can be used in any combination to produce the correct size of manifold required, eliminating the need for blanking plates. The V60 Series offers two 3/2 valves in one body. Although available widely among modular manifolds, the V60 Series is the first to offer this feature in an inline valve. In addition, double solenoid versions are available, with a single four-pin double coil mounted on one side of the valve, instead of the traditional method of two single coils mounted individually. Because the double coil requires just one connector instead of the usual two, wiring is simplified, space is saved and customer costs are reduced.
