Norgren integrated valve and actuator control

Wednesday, 16 January, 2013 | Supplied by: IMI Precision Engineering


Norgren has launched a range of high-performance cylinders that are designed to reduce energy useage and operating costs for OEMs and end users in a range of processing applications.

The IVAC (integrated valve and actuator control) is an integrated unit that combines the valve, flow controls, cushioning and sensors in a single actuator package.

IVAC is a weight- and space-optimised actuator suitable for a range of bore sizes from 40 to 80 mm, with integrated valve and magnetically operated switches for complete actuator control. Able to be retrofitted or integrated within new systems, each unit requires only one pneumatic and one electrical connection, eliminating the need for multiple valve islands, components, tubing and accessories.

Because it is easier to install, maintain and replace a single unit, scheduled and unplanned installation, commissioning and maintenance time and costs are reduced. Less downtime for maintenance also means higher productivity. Eliminating air piping between valves and actuators minimises ‘dead’ volume, reducing air consumption by up to 50%, cutting cost per mm of stroke when compared with conventional pneumatic systems.

A number of options and varieties are available including cleanline versions for industrial cylinders, industrial slave cylinders and easy washdown, helping OEMs comply more easily and cost effectively with hygiene regulations.

OEMs can take advantage of all of these benefits without any mechanical design changes, as IVAC products conform to the latest ISO VDMA dimensions. Its single M12 connection for input and output can be hardwired or plugged into a fieldbus system no matter which protocol is being used.
