Festo: Angle Seat Valves

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 | 657 Views

The angle seat valves VZXA made by Festo are externally actuated valves which are controlled by a direct feed of compressed air and are used to shut off gaseous or liquid media in pipe systems. The valve seat enables control of medium flows (gaseous and liquid) in closed and open circuits and is suitable for almost all media with a viscosity of up to 600 mm²/s.

The valve seat is slanted around 40 degrees toward the medium flow and the direction of flow is determined by the design of the valve (process valve and actuator). It has a modular and hygienic design, and is insensitive to dirt.
