Asahi/America offers precise flow control package

Asahi/America has been a supplier and manufacturer of corrosion resistant thermoplastic valves and piping systems for over 40 years. Headquartered in Lawrence, Massachusetts, Asahi/America maintains a vast inventory of valves, actuation, pipe, and fittings, which can be shipped directly to customers or incorporated into custom spools and skids by its fabrication department.

One of Asahi/America’s thermoplastic valve and actuator offerings includes a Type-21a SST PVC flow control ball valve paired with a Series 19 Smart Pack® actuator, which provides a cost effective, high accuracy flow control package. This valve and actuator package is ideal for water and wastewater treatment, chemical processing, aquaculture, aquariums, semiconductor, and food and beverage facilities among many other applications. It is the perfect solution for OEM and skid manufacturers where space is at a premium, but functionality and power cannot be sacrificed.

The Type-21a SST PVC flow control ball valve provides a modified equal percentage flow control, with repeatable results across the span of travel. It is available in ½” – 2” true union sizes and features a precision-machined PVC ball with center provisions to support PTFE seats from zero to 100% of capable flow. The characterized ball valve requires directional installation and comes equipped with a flow direction label.

The Series 19 smart modulating actuator is capable of 0.01% accuracy of setpoint. It is a multi-voltage unit and operates at a 75% duty cycle for more frequent cycling of the valve. The Series 19 also features 4-20mA control, failsafe capability, an LED light to indicate valve position or fault, ISO mounting configuration, corrosion-resistant NEMA 4X enclosure, and a QR code for easy and instant access to user manuals. It comes standard with an OLED screen and fault contacts.
