Steel and aluminium spool valves AX


A.P.I., headquartered at Mozzate (Como, Italy), has launched the new AX series of spool valves, characterized by AISI 316L stainless steel body and bottoms, hard anodized aluminium spool, spacers of Fortron 114L4 polymeric materials and HNBR seals. All the valves of the AX series are manufactured in conformity with the ATEX 2014/34/EU directive, in five different classifications (including Ex ia intrinsic safety and Ex dm encapsulated coil) and can therefore operate in potentially explosive environments. Such characteristics make these components particularly suitable for applications in the food, medical, pharmaceutical, chemical, Oil&Gas and mining industry. The series is composed by valves electrically or pneumatically operated, mono-or bi-stable, with 1/4″ G and 1/4″ NPT connections, supplied with 3/2, 5/2, 5/3 functions, Namur interface and/or in-line couplings, servo-piloted or with pneumatic pilot.
