Festo launches entry-level standard valve range, the VUVS series

The VUVS valves have very high flow rates for their size, of up to 2,000 l/min with an operating pressure up to 10 bar, ingress protection to IP67and are available in optional ATEX variants. The valve range starts at 1/8” ports in a 20mm body and are simple to fit on any machine. They are ideal for vacuum and low pressure applications such as simple clamping and locking operations in semiautomatic assembly, as well as larger production lines across all industries.

“These new valves aim to fulfil all the demands made on modern valves for universal use,” says Jacqui Hanbury, product marketing manager at Festo. “Festo has offered solenoid valves for many years, however with this new VUVS series we are able to offer a robust, high quality product at an excellent price, yet guarantee simpler installation and assembly, numerous standard functions and still with an attractive design.”
