Emerson has announced its ASCO series 353 pulse valve has been redesigned to help OEMs and end-users achieve a more effective, efficient and convenient bag cleaning. With a higher peak pressure, wider temperature range, patented quick mount clamp connection and overall part simplification, the series is said to provide longer bag and filter life and lower maintenance.
Without optimum peak pressure, Emerson says, dust collector cleaning becomes inefficient and the consumption of compressed air rises. Because it hits peak pressure quickly, the valve series is said to create a more effective cleaning process.
The design is also said to lead to improved airflow through the filter bags or cartridges for optimized dust collector performance while reducing costly compressed air consumption. Valve lifespan is over one million cycles on average.
The new valve can be used in a wide range of applications, including concrete processing, grain, agriculture and feed, food processing, pharmaceutical, mining, rubber mixing/processing, metal processing, lime industry, cement factories and steel mills.
