100% in- house manufacturing process technology
Maximum control and accuracy in all the stages of the manufacturing process

Less Air consumption
80% less air consumption compared to an actuated valve with SR pneumatic actuator therefore less load on the compressor or the possibility of using a smaller compressor's size.

GENERAL FEATURES:
Both Double Acting and Spring Return VIP valves (either Normally Open or Normally Closed) are available in sizes ranging from 3/8” to 2”.
Unidirectional flow.
GAS threaded ends as per EN 10226-1 Rp (Ex ISO 7/1) - DIN 2999 (NPT threads on request) with control fluid connections as per NAMUR interface.
Improved fluid dynamics allow minimum pressure losses. See Flow Pressure Diagram.
VIP valves can be used in any mounting position (horizontal, vertical or oblique).
They can be provided with seals in NBR, FKM or EPDM:
-NBR: suitable for air, gas, oils, water etc..
-FKM: perfectly suitable for most fluid. Unsuitable for steam.
-EPDM: perfectly suitable for hot water and steam. Unsuitable for mineral products (oils, grease, etc..).
For further information about gas, explosive fluids, material compatibilities etc. please contact our technical department.
Valve opening and closing can be signalled by means of external magnetic limit switches (to be requested on ordering the valves, as they cannot be assembled afterwards).
According to 2014/68/EU “PED” - 2014/34/EU ATEX configuration to request at time of order.

CONTROL MEDIA:

Filtered compressed air, not necessarily lubricated. At temperatures from -20°C to 0°C, use dry air. In case of lubricated air, seal compatible oil must be used.
Air supply:
3 bar min.- 8 bar max. in Double Acting execution.
4,2 bar min.- 8 bar max. in Spring Return execution.

WORKING PRINCIPLE
A VIP valve (patented by OMAL exclusively) is a proper automatic valve embodying both interception device (between pipe C-D) and control device (A-B).
It works thanks to the internal movement of a piston supplied with air. At the end of its stroke (a VIP valve is an ON/OFF valve), the piston presses on the seat seal or moves away from it letting the intercepted fluid flow or stopping it from flowing. As the seat is perfectly tight and the intercepted fluid pressures discharge on it, the pressure necessary to move the piston is completely independent of the fluid pressure. As a result OMAL has been able to design a light space saving and lasting valve. Its full bore and its improved internal dynamics allow minimum pressure losses, too.

Closed valve
Supplying the hole “A” with air (the hole “B” must be discharging) at the end of its stroke the piston presses on the seat seal: the valve is closed.
As in Spring Return N.C. executions the spring is in “A”, if there is no control, the piston will touch the seat seal: therefore, the preferable position is the closed one.

Transitionary phase
During the transitionary phase (the picture shows the opening transition in a Double Acting execution), one of the two holes is supplied. The piston moves axially changing the previous closed or open state. In Spring Return N.C. executions, the closing is caused by the spring (if there is no control). In Spring Return N.O. executions, the opening is caused by the spring (if there is no control). Both opening and closing transitionary phases last less than a second.

Opened valve
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.
As in Spring Return N.O. executions the spring is in “B”, if there is no control, the piston will be away from the seat seal: therefore, the preferable position is the open one.

A VIP valve can be provided with magnetic limit switches and signalling LED. Limit switches are supplied with a KIT which makes it possible to fix them on the outside easily and quickly. Since the magnets are situated inside the valve, they must be assembled while mounting the VIP and not afterwards. That’s the reason why the limit switches must be requested on ordering the valve.
