Valve Islands

Valve Islands

Valve Islands are commonly used on machine installations to reduce assembly and downtime and provide easier fault diagnosis. Valve Islands are configured individually to suit your needs and application.

Valve Islands

Valve islands are a collection of valves mounted into one unit, reducing pipework, electrical connections and complexity. We have been offering valve islands for twenty years, currently with the VM and VS series.

VM has a lightweight, high strength polymer manifold, whilst VS has a diecast aluminium base system, conforming to an ISO dimensional standard, with a choice of soft seal (high flow) or glandless (high cycle life) spool technology.

Spare Valves

We offer a number of spare elements for both our VM and VS series of valve islands. VM is lightweight and compact and VS fully conforms to ISO15407-2 and is available in soft seal versions giving high flow or our glandless spool technology offers high cycle life.

Valve Island Ranges

VM10

VM10 has PPA co-polymer body and end plates, with aluminium spool and NBR seals, making it compact and lightweight; the spool valve is indirectly actuated. It achieves a high flow rate (5/2, 400 l/min; 2x3/2 and 5/3, 350 l/min) from a 10mm valve width. Individually wired units are rated IP40 protected, with Multipole and Fieldbus units IP65. Valve slices have integral push-in fittings (PIF) of 3mm, 4mm and 6mm diameter.


VM15

VM15 has PPA co-polymer body and end plates, with aluminium spool and NBR seals, making it compact and lightweight; the spool valve is indirectly actuated. It achieves a high flow rate (5/2, 1000 l/min; 2x3/2, 965 l/min and 5/3, 900 l/min) from a 15mm valve width. Individually wired units are rated IP40 protected, with Multipole units IP65. Valve slices have integral push-in fittings (PIF) of 6mm, 8mm and 10mm diameter.

VS18

VS18 has a die-cast aluminium body and sub-base conforming to ISO 15407-2 Size 18mm. Solenoid pilot operated dual spool technology offers options for either glandless spool (long life) or softseal (high flow – 2x2/2, 550 l/min; 2x3/2, 600 l/min; 5/2 and 5/3, 650 l/min). The units have integrated fieldbus and are field expandable with single add-on stations. Connectivity is via universal PNP/NPN 24V d.c. Multipole.


VS26

VS26 has a die-cast aluminium body and sub-base conforming to ISO 15407-2 Size 26mm. Solenoid pilot operated dual spool technology offers options for either glandless spool (long life) or softseal (high flow – 2x2/2, 1150 l/min; 2x3/2, 1250 l/min; 5/2 and 5/3, 1350 l/min). The units have integrated fieldbus and are field expandable with single add-on stations. Connectivity is via universal PNP/NPN 24V d.c. Multipole.
