Midland-ACS, a UK-based manufacturer, has engineered the 70-series solenoid valve, which is now available from Petrotech Enterprises.

Utilising research in the marketplace and assessments of client demands, the 70-series valve has been engineered to provide customers with higher flow rates, while at the same time consuming less power than both traditional solenoids and competitor valves alike.

Using 316 stainless steel in the body construction to offer maximum internal and external protection from liquid and gases, the 70 series is a direct-acting 3/2 hazardous-area solenoid valve for the oil, gas and petrochemical industries.

Designed for actuator control, the 70 series is EExd IIC T6 classified with IP67 ingress protection for use in hazardous environments.

Compliant with the ATEX directive and entitled to bear the CE mark, the valve is also IECex certified.

Midland-ACS – taking into account views for offshore usage and the power issues that these installations and vessels have regarding the amount of wattage they use – set itself the task to better a power consumption rate of 5W.

Through various trials and tests, a final power-consumption figure of 3.5W at an ambient temperature of -50C to +60C was achieved.

The compact device weights 3.2kg and the valve design removes the potential for leaks and reduces the risk of hazardous contamination.

This direct-acting solenoid valve is available in 12VDC, 24VDC and 110VDC options and in 24VAC, 110VAC and 230VAC options.
