IMI Maxseal ICO3-1W is designed and certified for use in the most extreme environments such as offshore platforms to shale gas extraction. With a power consumption of just 1W, the new IMI Maxseal ICO3-1W is ideally suited to solar powered applications while maintaining industry-leading reliability and performance.

The new product boasts a <60ms changeover speed and a 5kg return spring – three times that of most other products on the market – which ensures 10x force friction ratio (FFR). The full range is certified to ATEX Ex d IIC T6-T4 (-55°C to +90°C) and has an IP66/X8 and Nema 4X environmental rating. Its operating pressure range is 0-12 Bar (pneumatic and hydraulic) with each fully balanced valve delivering leak-tight performance. To suit limited power applications, such as satellite platforms or shale gas, the range comprises of both 12V dc and 24V dc versions.

The ICO3 range draws on the leading IMI Maxseal ICO technology from IMI Precision Engineering, whose reliability characteristics have provided safe and reliable performance, even in the most arduous environments.
