They also withstand pressures to 16 bar. The valves have a ground-molded aluminum spool with overmolded rubber that eliminates the problems of seals deforming or extruding under high pressures or flow. Three versions of the valve are available: solenoid operated, remote air pilot, and manually actuated. There’s also a choice of ≠/8, ≠/4, ≥/8, and ≠/-in. port sizes. Each valve has an anodized aluminum body, a bore polished to high surface finish for higher flow capacity, thermoset plastic coils, stainless-steel fasteners, and anodized aluminum end caps. A porous sintered bronze vent plug keeps out contaminants and helps earn the valves an IP65 rating.
