ROSS CONTROLS® Introduces New Flow Control and Pushbutton Valves
Ross Controls Posted 04/04/2012(TROY, MI) – Whenever possible, ROSS CONTROLS® seeks to help its customers cut costs while still maintaining a state-of-the-art system. After all, the best value comes when a product enhances production and profitability. That is why ROSS is pleased to introduce customers to its two latest additions to the ROSS product family—the new cost-effective Flow Control and Pushbutton valves.
ROSS’ new modestly-priced Flow Control valves offers great value by replacing pricier controls with its high flow, compact, and low profile design. For applications requiring precise operation (such as cylinders), these valves provide finely-tuned control that ranges from near zero to full flow. When matched with the control valve capacity, these flow controls help provide smooth and predictable cylinder motion in both directions. These three-way valves are available in 1/8, 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2" port sizes.
The new three-way Pushbutton valves can be utilized anywhere that non-electric actuation of air piloted valves is needed. For instance, they may be used to remotely reset ROSS’ internally-monitored Series 35 SERPAR® L-G double valve once the detected fault has been corrected. The Pushbutton valve is an all-in-one product in that can be conveniently ported as a normally-closed or normally-open valve, allowing for greater application flexibility and a streamlined inventory. The button actuators are available in either green or red so that you may match them to your application needs. The valves are available in either a 1/8 or 1/4" port size.
Both of these valve series are available in NPT or BSPP threads. For more information on these convenient, cost-saving products, contact your local ROSS distributor or visit ROSS’ web site.
