Lexair proudly unveils our completely new Hi-Cyclic® Valve Series catalog. The new catalog LX-325 combines the two previously existing catalogs (LX-135 and LX-300) into one highly updated piece of sales/reference literature.
Highlights of the new catalog include:
o Complete drawings for all models on a CD inside the back cover
o A color "cut-away" view of a typical valve/spool area
o More specification information than in previous catalog editions
o Application information
o Easy to use model code information and "how-to-order" examples
o Updated description of spool functions complete with ANSI Symbols
Hi-Cyclic® is a directional control valve line that has become synonymous with operating dependability over many years of service. One reason for such an association to quality is our solid brass body that serves as a strong foundation for durability, allowing our valves to stand up to even the most severe applications. A second reason for them being so rugged is our sleeveless spool-to-body design. Internal restrictions are kept to a minimum, resulting in a very efficient high flow valve. Each spool is individually matched to a body, so Hi-Cyclic® valves function with a precision fit that reduces internal leakage to a minimum. We also use a simple, basic design principle-we keep moving parts and wear points to a minimum. The key to the product's versatility is in its modular component design. We use a few basic body styles that can be joined with a number of spool, operator and mounting options to create a magnitude of combinations. Because of our non-ferrous construction, we can handle air or hydraulic oils with pressures from 30" Hg vacuum to 250 PSI in air service, and up to 3000 PSI when used in hydraulic service. Models are available in 1/8" NPT to 1/2" NPT as well as 7/16-20 and 9/16-18 SAE straight thread port sizes with foot or subplate mounts (Magna- Cycle® only). Hi-Cyclic® valves may be specified with almost any type of direct solenoid, direct pilot (air or hydraulic), manual or mechanical operators to meet your specific application requirements.
Hi-Cyclic® valve response characteristics are exceptional, making them ideal where rapid cycling is required. This fast action is due in part to its extremely short spool travel - only 0.217" maximum. Rapid response is also aided by its precision honed body that is individually matched to custom lapped, pressure balanced spools, giving each valve almost frictionless operation and effortless shifting. The valve line features a compact, space saving design. With a maximum body length of only 2 1/4" and a maximum height of only 2 5/8" for foot mounted models, the product line yields an extremely compact envelope size and a low silhouette for installations with limited space.
Lexair offers excellent delivery for these units which can typically be shipped in 2 - 3 weeks after receipt of an order (depending upon quantity required).
We will be mailing out a minimum of two copies (or more depending upon the records in our database from the last catalog mailing) of the catalog to each of our distributor's branch offices on file in late January or early February. If you need additional catalogs, simply click on this generic e-mail address - firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us how many copies you need, what address to send them to and to whose attention they should be sent.
