Aqua Air Operated Valve LPC

Aqua Air Operated Valve LPC

Availability: May direct ship from manufacturer.
Product Code: 816-3

The Model 816 valve is an open or shut valve for air or gas lines up to 6000 PSI. In the normal position with no control pressure applied the valve is shut. Providing control pressure to the upper control port opens the valve. One typical application is to open a cylinder charging line only when a protective door is shut. A one inch thread section is provided permitting a variety of ways to mount the valve. The 816-3 valve is similar to the older 816-1 valve except the -3 valve uses a larger control piston permitting the use of lower control pressure. The valve, when used with an inexpensive low pressure solenoid. can be used in place of expensive high pressure solenoids. The 816-3V is a 3 way valve. When control pressure is released the downstream puressure is vented off. Similar valves with larger flow coefficients are avliable in our 1094 series valve.
