Fabri-Valve c67 popular option now standard! The mechanical retained seal option is now standard on all sizes of the Fabri-Valve C67’s ordered after October 1, 2009. This popular option features set screws that are drilled into the bottom portion of the flange. These screws press against the seal that is retained in the valve body by its trapezoidal shape. Since the feature is now standard, there is no additional cost for this popular feature. If you have any questions, please contact your F.W. Webb Sales Representative.

Cam-Tite® and Cam-Line® ball valves with H-Series Compact

actuators have been converted to C-Series Compact II actuators. The Compact II is one of the most rugged actuators on the world market. Due to its ruggedness, Compact offers a seven year warranty on the actuator.

Advantages of the C-Series Compact actuators: • Powerful - Four pistons generate twice the torque of comparably sized two piston designs • Energy saver - Reduces the average air consumption by 50% due to compact physical size • Fastest - Has faster stroke due to shorter travel distance • Smallest and Lightest - Size is about 50% of a traditional 2 piston actuator with same torque value, due to the 4 piston design • Minimal easy maintenance • Less wear of moving parts (piston and o-rings) than any traditional 2 piston actuator due to the concentric pistons design • Safe springs configuration change with cover bolts long enough to release spring load before removing the cover • Easy spring configuration changes, due to concentric spring structure • Wide options of Fail/Safe combinations, particularly in low air operating pressure The H-Series actuator has been discontinued and ITT will no longer ship or quote the obsolete H-Series actuator. If you have any questions, please contact your F.W. Webb Sales Representative.

ASCO introduces the new 411 Series miniature solenoid valve that offers up to twice the life of competing products plus higher flow rate performance. The new valve is ideal for applications in pharmaceutical, medical, analytical, and instrumentation products. The 411 Series’ unique plunger design significantly reduces wear on the poppet and is resistant to internal elastomer swelling that can disrupt performance. The new valve has been tested to exceed 500 million cycles in normal operating conditions, making it the longestlived, most reliable product of its kind on the market. ASCO has increased the valve’s flow rate by 12% to 15% over previous models, and the maximum operating pressure differential has been improved. The new valve family incorporates a smaller, lighter weight plastic body that achieves a 12% to 15% overall weight reduction when compared to stainless steel and brass-bodied valves. This makes the 411 Series a good choice for miniaturized and portable medical devices and pharmaceutical products. Lower power consumption means the valve also is attractive for use in batterypowered applications. In addition, it is the only miniature solenoid valve that is fully compliant with RoHS regulations.
