New Dual-Flow Dispensing Valve Takes Two-in-One Approach

Parker Fluid Control Division presents new option to the fuel dispensing market

NEW BRITAIN, CT/August 6, 2009 - Parker Fluid Control Division, manufacturer of the Skinner and Gold Ring lines of solenoid valves and the Sinclair Collins line of process control valves, announces the release of the Dual-Flow Dispensing Valve for the fuel dispensing market.

The Dual-Flow solenoid valve controls two flow rates on command at the fuel servicing pump, switching from high-flow to low-flow efficiently and quickly. The new product line meets both speed and precision requirements for dispensing and filling applications.

Designed as if it were two valves within one compact assembly, the Dual-Flow valve requires only a single dual-wound coil to release fuel. Through this design feature, the valve accurately dispenses a predetermined amount of liquid by providing a high-flow (full-flow) for bulk delivery, and then switches to the low-flow mode to dispense the final amount required.

The Dual-Flow valve operates within a maximum ambient and fluid temperature of 104ºF (40ºC), and consumes power at a high of 15 watts and a low of 8 watts. Port sizes are available in ¾", 1" and 1-½" with an operating pressure differential of 5 - 50 psi. Standard materials for construction include a brass body; fluorocarbon seals; NBR diaphragm; copper shading ring; and stainless steel sleeve, plunger, and springs. A Class F coil comes taped with three gasoline vapor-resistant lead wires.

The Dual-Flow valve can be ordered with a variety of optional features to best adapt to specific installation requirements. This product is both UL listed and CSA certified with ATEX available upon request.
