Solenoid Operation Right Angle Isolation Valves

Solenoid Operation Right Angle Isolation Valves
  • Transient high power for opening
    electronically switched
  • Low energy consumption
    in the ‘hold open’ position
  • Enclosure rating to IP55
    Grease free vacuum
  • MTTF up to 500000 cycles

The Edwards PVEK series valves are compact, light-weight electromagnetic vacuum valves suitable for use in vacuum pipeline systems down to 1 x 10-9 mbar. A double wound coil combined with an electronic switching circuit ensures low energy consumption, low operating temperatures and extended operating life.

Bellows sealed, the PVEK solenoid operated right angle valves are available with either aluminium (A) or stainless steel (S) bodies, with an overall MTTF of up to 500,000 cycles.
