Festo VZXA pneumatic valve family features unique modular design to simplify maintenance.

Festo released its VZXA family of pneumatically actuated angle seat valves that allows its stem, seat and seal to stay inside the valve body when actuator is removed for maintenance or changeover. In applications containing hazardous materials, those materials reside safely within the system, saving cleaning time and lowering health and safety risks of contamination. The actuator doesn’t have to be pressurized. Available in valve body sizes up to two inches, the family is offered as normally open, normally closed and double acting actuators. Line connections include threaded, sanitary clamp and welded end. Valve body materials include stainless steel and brass. Actuator bodies are stainless steel or polymer. Each VZXA actuator has an optical indicator showing valve position. Accessories include sensors for digital feedback, a piloting banjo valve, and stroke limiter for the open stroke.
