Hydravalve SIL3-rated solenoid valves and switchbox announcements

18 October, 2019

The Morc range of solenoids, supplied in the UK by Hydravalve, has recently been awarded SIL3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) certification.

These solenoids can be used with any pneumatic actuator that has similar certification and that conforms to NAMUR VDI/VDE standards. The Morc range of solenoids particularly complement the Prisma range of pneumatic actuators – also supplied by Hydravalve UK – as they are also SIL3.

NAMUR mount solenoid valve

Hydravalve has recently introduced the SIL3 explosion-proof MC50 Series NAMUR mount solenoid valve to the UK market. These valves can be directly mounted to double- or single-acting pneumatic actuators. They are explosion-proof EXD IIC T4-T6 GB IP66 and can be easily changed from 3/2 to 5/2. The air connection is 1/4" BSP and power connection is 1/2" NPT. The valves’ ambient temperature is -20 to +70degC and they have duty rating of 100% ED.

Explosion limit switchbox Exd

Hydravalve has also recently introduced the explosion limit switchbox Exd IIC T6. The SIL3-rated switchbox comes encased in an aluminium die-casting shell and includes a mounting bracket in line with NAMUR. Also featured is a visual open/closed indicator.

It has a terminal block with 8 standard contacts and wiring connection 2 x 3/4" NPT.
