Parker adds air piloted pneumatic product to Viking Lite range

Parker Hannifin has developed an air piloted pneumatic product for its Viking Lite range. Developed in response to customer's needs, this new addition allows the range of value engineered directional control valves to be specified in applications where air pilot is required.

Delivering high performance at a reasonable cost, the Viking Lite series offers a choice of three port sizes (G1/8, G1/4 and G3/8) and has a compact design, direct body porting and integral mounting holes for a flexible option that can be specified in a wide range of industrial applications. Manufactured from anodized aluminium, Viking Lite offers a valve with excellent corrosion resistance and, with a smooth body to eliminate dirt-collecting pockets, suitability for a wide variety of environments. The addition of the Air Piloted option expands this flexibility to deliver high performance in all pneumatic operations.

Utilising Viking Lite helps to reduce maintenance costs and service time. Through its Wear Compensation System, Viking Lite valves deliver robust performance for a longer service life with short changeover times and low changeover pressure for reduced service time. Fitted with Parker's dynamic bi-directional spool seals, the range can operate comfortably at pressure up to 10 bar and in ambient temperatures from -10degC to 50degC and deliver 10 million operating cycles.

In addition to single valve installation, Viking Lite gives customers the flexibility to install the valves in two ways: a manifold bar installation with common ducts for ports 1, 3 and 5, giving a simple, time saving and easily serviced option available in several different sizes, with space for between 2 and 14 valves, or a pressure bar installation for common primary air supply providing a simple, robust, time saving and easily serviced installation. When pressure bars are used, restrictor-silencers can be installed in the exhaust ports of each valve, for individual adjustment of cylinder / air motor speed. Pressure bars are available in a number of different sizes, with space ranging from 2 to 10 valves.
