ASCO’s low temperature solutions for actuator control can be used in Arctic temperatures

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

With a trend towards the exploitation of oil reserves in harsh environments, the requirement for actuator controls that can cope with extremely low temperatures has increased. The launch of a low temperature version of ASCO’s direct operated solenoid valve and stainless steel Filter Regulator completes its range of low temperature products. Suitable for use in temperatures down to -60°C, the range includes a direct operated 3/2 solenoid valve, a 3/2 - 5/2 solenoid operated spool valve and a selection of Filters and Filter Regulators.

Available for use down to -60°C are a robust stainless steel Filter Regulator and a proven in use direct operated solenoid valve, used to control the opening or closing of spring return actuators. Offering reliable operation down to -40°C is a compact aluminium solenoid operated spool valve which could be used on spring return or double acting actuators, and an aluminium Filter, Regulator, Lubricator – which is also claimed to feature one of the highest flow rates on the market. The aluminium FRL is available down to -40°C as an option.
