Ross Controls has announced the release of its Dale Series CP and CX compact poppet valves and manifolds to the market. The Series CP and CX 2- or 3-way valves are available in normally-open, normally-closed and remote pilot configurations. The 2-way valves range from 3/8 to 2-1/2in pipe size with an impressive Cv range of 3.5 to 100. This high-flow capability is a unique and valuable feature in such a compact valve manifold design. The 3-way valves range from 1/2 to 1in pipe size and have a Cv range of 3.6 to 12.3. These valves can be ordered with inline or manifold base-mounted configurations (with throughholes), depending on the application requirements. For added flexibility, the valves are available with customer-specified manifolds that can combine normally-open, normally-closed, solenoid pilot or remote pressure control operation together in one manifold to create simple valve systems for traditionally complicated applications. For example, a common application for these valves is on equipment where media of different pressure levels (including vacuum) may need to be applied sequentially to a common work piece. Instead of piping up several valves together with hard pipe, the Series CP and CX valves can be configured into a common manifold.
