ASCO NUMATICSASCO Numatics’ 503 Series of pneumatic directional control valves with ultra-high flow ratings is designed for automation and piloting applications across a range of automotive and tire, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, packaging equipment, and general machinery applications. ASCO Numatics says the 503 Series control valves deliver the industry’s highest flowrates per valve size. This enables design and specifying engineers to use smaller, lower-cost valves and components that do more work with less air, energy, and cost. In addition, designers can choose to generate greater speed of motion for their components using the same-size valve. The control valve line is available in either spool-and-sleeve or rubber seal models, as well as proprietary or ISO versions. Dual-spool technology provides customers a reliable drive train with the high flowrates to increase throughput and reduce maintenance costs. The pneumatic directional control valves are designed to complement Numatics’ G3 fieldbus electronics. –
