The air supply for on/off applications is controlled by using solenoid valves, which are fitted directly on the valve actuators. SOMAS offers solenoid valves from well-known manufacturers and there are also special solutions for specific functionality available. The connection between a solenoid valve and actuator is either made with a plastic hose or a pipe made of stainless steel.
Ball Segment Valves– high capacity and linear control characteristics
in control applications
High capacity, excellent tightness and free flow. These words aptly describe some of the superior properties of the ball segment valve. SOMAS ball segment valves have been designed to fulfill the strictest requirements of the process industry. Due to its free flow and choice of different materials for its housing and seat, the ball segment valve is usually the best choice for the industry.
The ball segment valves high capacity comes from the design of its seat and ball segment. Compared to other valve designs it is often possible to use smaller and more economical valve sizes. What sets SOMAS ball segment valves apart from many other manufacturers, is the fact that the entire valve is designed with a free flow in mind. This design philosophy minimizes the risk of clogging.
Combining with an actuator unit
The ball segment valve is first and foremost a control valve offering excellent tightness in the closed position. The properties of this valve make it useful for most applications. Combined with SOMAS pneumatic actuators and positioners the result is a flexible unit with a wide control range.
