Parker #P2L Directional Control Valve
Parker Hannifin has launched a range of value engineered pneumatic directional control valves. Designed to deliver performance combined with reasonable cost, the Viking Lite range is suitable for a range of industrial applications.
The Viking Lite range can be specified in three different port sizes namely G1/8, G1/4 and G3/8 and offers compact installation dimensions, beneficial for space critical applications.
The Viking Lite range features Parker's dynamic bi-directional spool seals. Suitable for pressures up to 10 bar in ambient temperatures of -10 °C to + 50 °C, under pressure radial expansion of the seal occurs to maintain sealing contact with the valve bore.
The wear compensating system has been designed to deliver long life. In turn this reduces friction thus giving lower pilot pressures, this also provides fast response and less wear.
Delivering more than 10 million operating cycles, Viking Lite offers short change over times and low change over pressure. This means that general maintenance and service time can be reduced.
During the design stage extra emphasis has been placed on the material design of the valves. Manufactured from anodized aluminium, the valve offers good corrosion resistance in a smooth design.
This feature eliminates dirt collecting pockets, thus making the valves suitable for a variety of environments. Optimised to comply with the requirements for component reliability in accordance with the EU machinery directive standards EN292-2 and EN983, Viking Lite is designed for use with or without supplementary lubrication.
