AutomationDirect NS-Series valves NSF-certified for potable water.
AutomationDirect released its NS-Series of National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certified valves from GC Valves. The series features stainless steel or thermoplastic bodies and synthetic seating and sealing materials. Valve operation is normally closed (N.C.) and open when electrically energized. The valves can be mounted in any position and a spring-loaded plunger assures positive shutoff. Three types of 2-port (2-way), 2-position NS series valves are available.
NS201 and NS211 series are piloted diaphragm valves; have 316L stainless steel or Nylon 6 bodies; and are ported for 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1-1/4, 1-1/2 or 2-inch NPT. These valves are available with 120VAC, 24VAC or 24VDC solenoids. NS301 series valves are direct acting; have 303 stainless steel bodies and 1/4 inch NPT ports. They are available with three orifice sizes and solenoid voltages of 120VAC, 24VAC or 24VDC.
