PRESSURE / TEMPERATURE DIAGRAM
FLOW RATE / PRESSURE LOSS AND NOMINAL COEFFICIENT
The pneumatic coaxial valve "VIP EVO" is the evolution of the "VIP" valve. "VIP EVO" is an interception valve (between pipe IN-OUT) with built in control system (A-B). It works thanks to the internal movement of a piston supplied with air. At the end of its stroke (VIP EVO valve is an ON/OFF valve), the piston presses on the seat seal, stopping the fluid from flowing, or moves away from the seal, allowing the intercepted fluid to flow. As the seat is perfectly tight and the intercepted fluid pressures discharge on it, the pressure necessary to move the piston is little affected by the fluid pressure. As a result OMAL has been able to design a light space saving and lasting valve. Internal fluid-dynamics has been designed to reduce turbolence and pressure loss.
SPRING RETURN - SR N.C. The spring is in “A1”, if there is no control, the piston will touch the seat seal: therefore, the preferable position is the closed one.
SPRING RETURN - SR N.C. Supplying the hole “B” with air (the hole “A” must be discharging) at the end of its stroke the piston is at maximum distance from the seat seal: the valve is open.
SPRING RETURN - SR N.O. Supplying the hole “A” with air (the hole “B” must be discharging) the piston presses on the seat seal at the end of its stroke: the valve is closed.
SPRING RETURN - SR N.O. The spring is in “B1”, if there is no control, the piston will be away from the seat seal: therefore, the preferable position is the open one.
DOUBLE ACTING - DA Supplying the hole “A” with air (the hole “B” must be discharging) the piston presses on the seat seal: the valve is closed.
DOUBLE ACTING - DA Supplying the hole “B” with air (the hole “A” must be discharging) the piston is at maximum distance from the seat seal: the valve is open.
Limit switch magnet: on request at order phase. Double Acting DA versions: spring included for antistatic device.

VIP EVO can be provided with inductive limit switch (magnetic contact) and signal LED. Limit switches can be easily mounted in the integrated slots and fixed with a screw. Since the magnets are situated inside the valve, they must be mounted while assembling the VIP EVO and not afterwards. For this reason, in case needed, magnet must be requested at VIP EVO order phase.
