Hydraulic equipment manufacturers are actively transitioning from larger legacy valves to cartridges. SICV’s are more optimized valves—better cost, smaller sizes, and the perfect valve for many applications.
Hazardous coils for SICVs did not keep pace, until now. With the Modular Hazardous Coil Platform (MH Coil), engineers can get a large range of hazardous area certifications—ATEX, CSA, IECEx—to meet their global customer needs.
GW Lisk’s new MH Coil platform is certified as an appliance, separate from the solenoid valve, allowing manifold system engineers more flexibility, global certifications, and more potential solenoid valve choices.
The MH Coil Platform was developed specifically for use in areas where combustible gases and/or dusts may be present, such as oil and gas drilling, power generation, turbine process control, and specialty actuators. It features a robust design for high vibration environments and carries multiple global certifications (with additional certifications available for specialty markets). Manifold designers are specifically requesting the MH Coil because it can be directly mounted to the manifold surface, removing the load from the valve’s core tube—increasing resistance to shock and vibration.
The MH Coil features a fin-free design, tube mount or 4-bolt interface, and various on-off and proportional options. The experts at LISK are also able to modify the product design to fit a customer’s specific requirements, as well as guide customers through the complexity of Hazardous Location certifications.
It all adds up to more possibilities for the engineers who are designing products for these challenging environments.
