RICHLAND, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Parker Hannifin Corporation (www.parker.com/pneumatic), the global leader in motion and control technologies, has introduced a new low-cost inline solenoid valve, the Viking Lite Valve Series. The valves feature Parker's Wear Compensating System (WCS), which comprises a spool seal that under pressure expands radially, thus maintaining sealing contact with the valve bore. The benefit of WSC is it compensates for wear during usage, extending cycle life and reliability. The system requires no lubrication and provides lower pilot pressures for fast response and less wear. The Viking Lite Valve Series is designed to operate with standard pressures of up to 145 PSIG and standard temperatures ranges of 14 degrees F to 122 degrees F (-10 degreesC to 50degreesC), making them suitable for applications including general industrial and food processing. The VikingLite Valve Series come in 3-way and 4-way 2-position single and double solenoid and 4-way 3-position double solenoid functions, 1/8, 1/4 or 3/8 port sizes with a standard 22-pin 3-Pin DIN solenoid connector. The valves can mount individually or collectively on an IEM bar manifold.
In addition, Parker has expanded the line of Viking Xtreme Valve Series (solenoid and remote pilot valves) with a 3-way, 2-position valve to provide a wider range of applications from general industrial to rugged environments. The Viking Xtreme Valve Series solenoid and remote pilot valves come in two different versions the Normal Version and the Xtreme Version.
The Normal Version is unique because, while the valve operates in standard temperature and pressure ranges, it is available with hazardous duty, intrinsically safe or ATEX-approved solenoids. The Normal Version targets applications ranging from general industrial to mobile where a
