Series PCB valves are pneumatically or hydraulically actuated with two port connections and two switching positions. As standard, the control is carried out via a direct mounted 5/2-way pilot valve, or via a pilot valve cluster provided by the customer.
Series PCB has been especially designed for highly abrasive, adhesive, aggressive or toxic media. This valve series has been successfully used for glue applications, bonding technology and coolant supply in mechanical engineering, up to 375 psi pressure rating.
Series PCB valves have a special feature - they are hermetically sealed to the outside by a metal bellows and are also equipped with wear resistant valve seats. Media that hardens when making contact with air would destroy a conventional valve. The PCB can be used as a single valve as well as in a module or manifold. The proven cartridge design also ensures an economical and space-saving installation.
Switching times can be set as desired using throttles on the pilot valve; opening and closing can be delayed up to three seconds to prevent hydraulic pressure surges in pipeline systems.
The valves can be optionally equipped with a variety of pilot valves and limit switches, mounting brackets, and with diverse plug connections such as M12x1 DESINA/VDMA.
