Westlock Falcon Series of solenoid valves is specifically
engineered to address low power valve actuation requirements.
When interfaced with computer-based process control systems
requiring low power energy supplies, the utilization of
Falcon solenoids translates into immediate economic
benefits. Required power levels for actuation control are
efficiently reduced to 5% of the energy required for operation
of conventional valves. Integrated within the Quantum housing
and capable of operating in any position, Falcon solenoids
are available in General Purpose, Division 2 (nonincendive)
and Division 1 & 2 (explosion-proof & intrinsically
safe) configurations. Both 3-way for single acting and 4-way
for double acting actuators carry standard Cv ratings of
.3, .5, 1.2 and 3.5.
wide range of sensors are available for monitoring valve
position. Mechanical switches are the least expensive and
possess SPDT and DPDT capability. Magnum® sensors, hermetically
sealed against the intrusion of explosive gases and liquids,
provide maximum resistance against moisture and corrosion.
Solid state sensors are internationally approved for intrinsically
safe applications as are both Magnum® and mechanical
sensors under their classification as "simple apparatus"
If required, a complete range of resistive and current transmitters
provide full range monitoring of valve position.
