Press Release Summary:
Series 315/415 direct-acting solenoid valves have lip seal that uses air pressure within valve to assist spring in creating tight seal. This increases flow rate to 0.42 Cv, yet keeps body 19mm wide. Valves have 1/8 in. NPT ports, operating pressure range of 28 in. Hg to 125 psig, 5 W coil with 12 and 24 Vdc and 120 Vac voltage options, and NEMA 4 rating. 315 Series are multi-purpose 3-way valves, and 415 Series are 5-port 4-way valves.

Humphrey Introduces 315/415 Series Direct-Acting Solenoid Valves with Patent-Pending Sealing Concept
Humphrey Products Company has introduced the 315/415 Series direct-acting solenoid valves incorporating a patent-pending pneumatic poppet valve sealing concept. The new valves feature a lip seal design that utilizes air pressure within the valve to assist the spring in creating a tight seal. This concept made it possible to increase the flow rate to 0.42 Cv -- 35% higher than conventional poppet valves with similar dimensions -- yet keep the body just 19mm wide.
The new Humphrey 315/415 Series valves feature 1/8" NPT ports, 0.42 Cv flow rate, operating pressure range of 28"Hg to 125 psig, 5-watt coil with 12 and 24 VDC and 120 VAC voltage options, and a NEMA 4 rating. The 315 Series valves are multi-purpose 3-way valves and the 415 Series valves are five port 4-way valves available with an optional Sandwich Speed Control that mounts between the valve and the manifold. The valves have a common body designed for both inline and manifold mounting.
The Humphrey 315/415 Series valves are the newest additions to the family of 300/400 Series products. The valves offer a mid-range flow rate between the 310/410 Series valves and the 320/420 Series valves.
