ASCO Numatics, a unit of Emerson that focuses on automation technologies for fuel dispensing, has introduced the ASCO 291 series of high-pressure solenoid valves for compressed natural gas (CNG) applications.
The product, which is new in the North American market, can withstand pressures exceeding 5,000 psi while providing excellent flow rates and using only 12 W of power. The 291 valves are offered in three pipe sizes – 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch and 1 inch – and in three-station and six-station manifold versions.
‘Station packagers will value our high flow rate that permits faster vehicle fueling and exceptional reliability that reduces maintenance and down time,’ says Robert W. Kemple Jr., executive vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas.
The new CNG valves can be ordered from ASCO distributors or directly from the company. For more information, call (800) 972-2726 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
