A.P.I. presents its new Stainless Steel spool valves Series AX1.
The body and the end caps of these valves are manufactured in AISI 316L Stainless Steel, the spool in hard anodized aluminium, the distancers in Fortron 114L4 polymer, while the seals are in hydrogene nitrile butadine rubber (HNBR).
On request all the elements of the valve are available in AISI 316L Stainless Steel (AXX) with FKM seals.

All the valves Series AX1 are manufactured in accordance with ATEX 2014/34/EU Directive, in 5 different classifications (including intrinsic safety Ex ia, encapsulated coil Ex dm, and encapsulated flameproof coil Ex db) and therefore can operate in potentially explosive environments.
These features make those pneumatic components good for applications in the Food&Beverage, in the chemical pharmaceutical and medical sectors, but particulary suitable for Oil&Gas and Mining industry.

The series consists of electrically or pneumatically operated valves, monostable or bistable, with port connections 1/4" G and 1/4" NPT, available with functions 3/2, 5/2 and 5/3, Namur interface and/or in-line port, external air pilot or with pneumatic pilot.
On demand, the spool valves Series AX1 can operate at pressures up to 12bar (~175psi), extreme temperatures between -25°C (-13°F) and +150°C (+302°F), in chemical and corrosive environments, guaranteeing excellent performance even in indoor or outdoor use, and are mountable in any position.
