Press release date: March 31, 2014
TROY, MI – ROSS CONTROLS proudly announces the release of its updated 3/2 Cartridge Valve for I/S glass machines, 21 or 26 valve blocks. This rugged and recently redesigned valve now provides longer service life and enhanced uptime in harsh and dirty glass production environments. ROSS’ 3/2 Valve Block Cartridge valve is constructed with high quality, aircraft grade aluminum outer housings, high-temperature VITON® seals, and high-temperature stainless steel poppets. These robust materials prevent downtime by protecting against internal deterioration due to contaminated air and extreme conditions.
The newly redesigned valve offers many upgrades such as improved through flow, poppet internals, moving part guidance and longer projected product life. For improved ease-of-use, the new 3/2 Valve Block Cartridge valve no longer requires orientation during installation. Its three-leg design offers a stronger build which helps improve productivity. The valve also conveniently integrates the pressure booster function with its two-piston design.
The valve is available in a 14 mm normally-closed (red housing) or normally-open (blue housing) spring return construction.
