Original Press Release:
Parker Introduces Moduflex Dual 4-Way Valve
The Pneumatic Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation announces the addition of a Dual 4-Way Valve to the Moduflex Valves System Series. This valve combines 2, 4-way valves into one valve body. Valve modules can now be ordered as dual valves or single valves.
The Dual 4-way valve module has two independently operated valves in the Size 1 valve body. Though there are two valves in one body, there are no differences in dimensions between double or single valves and there is only a slight reduction in flow when compared to a single 4-way valve.
These valves can be combined with other dual 3-way or single 4-way valves of either Size 1 or Size 2 valves, without transition kits, to fit all types of applications. Moduflex Valves are available in 24vdc solenoid or air pilot operated versions with a universal manual override. The Universal Manual override is available as either Locking / Non-Locking, and can be changed in the field to Non-Locking override only, which helps with machine set-up. When the Locking override is disabled, unwanted locking of the manual override is eliminated.
Moduflex Dual 3-way and 4-way valves offer a flexible automation product for demanding applications. The Moduflex Series provides a complete choice of either stand-alone valves, short-build valve islands, or large valve island configurations.
