Albion Introduces New Gas Solenoid Line

Albion, a leading UK valve supplier to the building services and industrial sectors, has introduced a new line of gas solenoid valves to their product portfolio. The new range is certified to EN 161 standard and complies with PED 97/23/EC.

Due to the ever changing and often complicated legislation determining what products are required in gas applications, the job of specifying the correct equipment can be extremely difficult. However, Albion distributors can now be assured that their product is fit for purpose, and that their customers will benefit from a reliable and trustworthy automated gas control system across a host of applications.

In most gas applications solenoid valves are the first line of safety. Their functions range from managing the mains gas supply to a building, enabling instant shut off if required, to controlling gas flow and isolating specific areas of a building, for example in an apartment block they can create individual closed circuit areas for each unit.

In industry, gas solenoids are a vital cog in the smooth running of factories and in the industrial process. The solenoid's simple on/off mechanic is one of the most widely used in operations in any factory. Albion's solenoid range features a <1 second activation time and up to 20 activations per minute, making them an ideal solution for all types of factory line.

The new range of valves are available with either flanged or screwed fittings in sizes from (½'- 2") screwed and (2 ½ - 4") flanged and can withstand temperatures from -20°C to +60°C, with 360 mbar maximum pressure.

Les Littlewood, Sales Director at Albion Valves UK Ltd commented:

"Solenoids have always been a best seller. Due to the huge success and increasing popularity of the solenoid range, it made total commercial sense to be able to offer a gas certified option. Distributors should contact our customer service team to discuss the best options for them."
