The VXB Series is an angle seat valve for air, steam and heated water which has been created to meet market demand for valves that deliver an extended operating life, low levels of leakage and are compact in design.
SMC, the worldwide leading expert in pneumatics, has designed the VXB Series angle seat valve, which can deliver up to 5 million air and 3 million steam cycles. It also has a special FKM rubber seal that minimises internal air leakages to just 10 cm³/min or less.
With a compact design of just 100 mm height in the 3/8 valve, the VXB is the ideal solution for applications including temperature control, hot water systems, industrial washing machines, sterilising and cleaning equipment.
Further design features help users keep costs to a minimum by extending the lifespan and efficiency of the valve through a double protective construction. Foreign particles are prevented from interfering with the VXB’s performance thanks to a protective seal and a resin scraper.
XXX SMC said: “Through listening to our customers’ needs we set about creating a multi-purpose angle seat valve that delivers cost savings, minimal maintenance, reliability and space savings.
“Initial feedback for the VXB has been really positive and we are confident that it will be a popular addition to our valve range.”
Available in three port sizes, 3/8, 1/2 and 3/4, the VXB can be ordered in bronze or stainless steel (316L equivalent) with a pilot port location that can be placed in three of its four sides.
