Kalamazoo, Mich.—Humphrey Products has announced the 153 Balanced Solenoid Valve, the first edition in its latest generation of direct-acting valve technology. Developed for maximum utility, each 3-port solenoid valve meets a variety of functions with its multi-purpose classification. The valve boasts significantly more flow (0.25 Cv), while fitting into tight spaces with its reduced 15mm size. The price point makes this valve a value to OEMs and end users in a variety of market segments.
The 153 Valve is a balanced-poppet design, which means all internal forces generated by the pressurized media have effectively been neutralized. Expect the valve to have very stable performance regardless of the myriad of media fluctuations, mild contamination, or porting choices. Plus, Humphrey’s stringent requirements for extremely low leak rates still apply—designed and tested 4ccm max at 100 psi.
Other attractive features include:
· 2- or 3-way
· Normally closed or normally open
· Clean or not so clean air
· Applicable for the full pressure range to 125 psi, including vacuum
