Product Lineup

2-Way Valves

2-Way Miniature Direct Acting

2-way Miniature Direct Acting valves are available in Normally Closed and Normally Open constructions with interchangeable AC/DC coils. Valves are standard with 303 stainless steel bodies and FKM seals. These compact valves are durable with the potential for long life. Under lab conditions, these valves have survived 20 million cycles.

2-Way Direct Acting

2-way Direct Acting valves are used in a wide variety of applications that require zero pressure differential and medium to high pressures and flow. These valves are available in a variety of elastomers as well as, brass and stainless construction.

2-Way Direct Lift, Pilot & Remote Operated

2-Way Direct Lift, Pilot & Remote Operated valves are designed for higher flow and medium to high pressure applications. Pilot operated valves require the minimum pressure differential specified for proper

valve operation.

2-Way High Pressure Direct & Pilot Operated

2-Way Direct Acting and Pilot Operated High Pressure valves are generally installed where high pressure and large flow requirements dictate the use of piston valves and/or valves with more robust seals such as PTFE and Ruby discs*. Pilot Operated valves require the minimum pressure differential specified for proper valve operation.

2-Way Anti-Water Hammer & Slow Closing

2-way Anti-Water Hammer and Slow Closing valves are designed for liquid applications where the installation is susceptible to shock waves caused by the abrupt closing of the valves. Anti-water hammer valves have integral speed control so that the valve closes in a more controlled and slower manner, thus eliminating the shock to the system piping. Pilot operated valves require the minimum pressure differential specified for proper valve operation.

3-Way Valves

3-Way Miniature Direct Acting

3-way Miniature Direct Acting valves are suitable for low to medium pressure applications that do not require a minimum operating pressure differential, for actuation. Available in normally open, normally closed, or universal operation. Tested to 20 million cycles under lab conditions. Standard with 303 stainless steel bodies and FKM seals.

3-Way Direct Acting

3-way Direct Acting valves are suitable for low to medium pressure applications that do not require a minimum operating pressure differential. Available in normally open, normally closed and universal operation.

3-Way Pilot & Remote Operated

3-Way Pilot Operated valves are used in general industrial applications and control valve pilot actuation where higher pressures and flows are required. Pilot operated valves require the minimum operating pressure differential specified to ensure proper operation.

3-Way High Pressure

3-way Direct Acting High Pressure valves are used in general industrial application and control valve pilot actuation where higher pressures and flows are required. No minimum operating pressure differential required to ensure proper operation.

3-Way Quick Exhaust

3-Way Direct Acting & Pilot Operated Quick Exhaust Valves are designed to provide a large orifice for quick exhaust. Increased exhaust capacity significantly reduces cycle time for single acting spring return actuators. Pilot operated valves require the minimum operating pressure differential specified to ensure proper operation. Direct acting valves do not require a pressure differential.

4-Way Valves

4-Way Direct Acting & Pilot Operated

4-Way Direct Acting and Pilot Operated valves are used in applications for actuation of double acting cylinders and piloting of larger control valves. Pilot operated valves require the minimum operating pressure differential specified to ensure proper operation. Direct Acting valves do not have a minimum pressure differential requirement.

3-Way/4-way Direct Mount NAMUR

The NAMUR mounting interface for direct mount pilot valves has become widely popular around the world. Parker’s Direct Mount NAMUR valves meet that global need and are supplied with the necessary mounting hardware and seals as standard to ensure proper mounting, interface sealing and valve function. These valves can be converted between 3-way and 4-way operation by using Parker’s patented mounting conversion plate which is unique in the industry.

Specialty Valves

Manifold Mounted Miniature Cartridge Valves

The manifold mounted miniature Cartridge Valve is offered in two-and three-way models with a stainless steel body. It offers a space-saving approach, with no manifold orifices to machine or press in, since the orifice is integral to the cartridge valve. Ultimately, less machining means lower manifold costs. These cartridge valves come fully assembled with no loose parts – the sleeve, plunger, spring and orifice are pressed together as one unit.

MB 3-Way Miniature – Plastic

MB Series valves are designed for the actuation of small air cylinders and clamps, and are suited for applications requiring low air flow. For manifolding, 2 or 3 station bases are offered. Manifolds can be bolted together to provide the desired banking combination.

Dry Operator 2-Way

2-Way Dry Operator valves are specially designed for non-contaminating and corrosive applications. The valves assure absolute purity and inertness to corrosion when used with a broad range of fluids.

Hot Water & Steam

2-Way Hot Water and Steam valves are specifically designed to withstand harsh application conditions. Many designs include integral stainless steel main and pilot orifices.

Intrinsically Safe Series

Intrinsically safe systems and products are recommended, or in some cases compulsory, where the highest level of protection from explosion is required. They are also employed in applications that require low power.

Manual Reset 3-Way

3-Way Manual Reset solenoid valves are designed to start and stop the flow of media as the result of an electrical signal. This can be a problem in some power outage situations were the valve must remain in the no voltage supplied position until the system is manually restarted. Manual reset valves have an added safety device to address this issue. When the manual reset device is triggered, the valve remains in the at rest position until the reset mechanism is manually latched.

Hydraulic 2-Way & 3-Way

2-Way & 3-Way hydraulic direct acting valves are specifically designed for use in hydraulic systems. These valves are spool type valves that can withstand a static pressure up to 3000 PSI. All internal parts are compatible with most hydraulic fluids.

Magnelatch® Coil Option

The Magnelatch® operator contains a permanent magnet that is shifted on (latched) or off (released) by a momentary electrical current pulse of approximately twenty milliseconds (.02 seconds). The conventional solenoid valve is in one of two positions – off or de-energized, or on – energized. The Magnelatch® requires no continuous power thus the term latch position is used for on and release position for off. Valves with Magnelatch coils remain in their last energized position and do not return to their de-energized position in the event of a power outage.

Fuel Dispensing Valves

Parker Fluid Control Division’s Dual- Flow solenoid valves are designed to control two flow rates on command. The valves are actually two valves in one compact assembly using a single dual-wound coil. The valves accurately dispense a predetermined amount of liquid by providing a high-flow (full-flow) for delivery of the bulk amount, and then switch to the low-flow mode to dispense the final amount required.

Fuel Selector Manifold

Unique in design, the Fuel Selector Valve Manifold permits continuous engine function during tank switching from a safe and convenient location. These innovative manifold solutions include 2-way, normally closed solenoid operators that are rated for fuel safety shut-off and feature a manual operator (standard) for system operation during a power outage.

CNG Valves

Parker Fluid Control Division is now pleased to offer the high pressure, high flow, low leakage CNG natural gas valve. This product is designed for integration into compressed natural gas fuel delivery systems (i.e. trucks, buses, & etc…) utilizing single and multi-tank applications.

Timer Drain Valves

Parker Fluid Control’s Timer Drain Valves automatically eliminate condensate that has collected up in compressed air lines.
