IMI Norgren, Inc: Pneumatic valve island
The Model VM10 from Norgren (Littleton, CO) is a compact, lightweight, high-flow pneumatic valve island. It is said to offer versatility coupled with user-friendly features and is specifically designed for the packaging machinery sector.
Flow rate of 0.4 Cv is said to be the highest available for any valve with a 10-mm width. This flow rate means that the VM10 can be used in place of heavier larger and more expensive 16-mm and ISO valves. Made from a high-performance engineering polymer the VM10 combines strength and stability with low weight. It provides excellent resistance to chemicals and is suitable for industries such as food packaging where it resists chemical washdowns.
