A series of single valves which is said to offer exceptional flow rates has been announced by Festo. The CPE series allows for very small width and supports the company’s design trend towards minimisation. Internally, the new valves have been designed to minimise flow resistance and keep power consumption low. They can be used as single valves on a valve manifold or directly mounted onto cylinders. Two options are offered, a high flow rate for faster machine movements, or, if the time cycle is adequate, a more compact and lower cost valve usage.
Initially the valve series is offered in three overall widths of 10mm, 14mm and 18mm. Flow rates are dependent upon the directional control functions, but they are approximately 400l/min, 800l/min and 1600l/min.
