FREMONT, Calif. (PRWEB) November 18, 2019
Ichor Systems introduces a new solution for flow control with an extension to its existing CDV (Conventional Diaphragm Valves) and MDV (Modular Diaphragm Valves). This new line of Hybrid Valves incorporates additional actuation choices with Hybrid Actuators. This results in an enhanced capability shut-off valve for LOTO (Lock Out Tag Out) applications and high pneumatic cycle applications all in one actuator.
When space is limited, this new Hybrid Actuator offers a substitute solution for an in-line Manual LOTO Valve and Normally Closed Pneumatic Valve, thus cutting space requirement in half.
The Hybrid Actuator combines the best attributes of a normally closed Pneumatic Actuator and a Manual LOTO Actuator. The Hybrid Actuator functions similar to the trusted and proven normally closed Pneumatic Actuator when the manual handle is in the open state. Also, the quarter turn manual handle operation to the closed state provides a mechanical stop, preventing the normally closed Pneumatic Actuator from opening.
In addition, the valves are a fully compatible extension to existing CDV and MDV product lines and save valuable space for applications in which a Manual LOTO and normally closed Pneumatic Valve are desired. Functional benefits include a flow indicating handle showing closed or open state and a convenient LOTO handle to prevent the manual actuator from opening when locked. The actuation supply line attaches to a 1/8" tube integrated fitting or you have the option of selecting your own pneumatic fitting for the M5 pneumatic connection.
To highlight the reliability of the Hybrid Valves, Ichor’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Marty Dertinger, provides a customer use case; “Our customer had an application with added technical requirements during maintenance. Our solution gave them the confidence they needed to move ahead with their project. The new hybrid actuator gives Ichor’s customer a solution for critical applications.” With the new Hybrid Valve product line, Ichor brings a space-saving and reliable solution to our customers.
