ASCO Pilot Valves Solve Reliability/Maintenance
Problems for Plywood Manufacturer
Problem:
A major plywood manufacturer in the Pacific Northwest was experiencing
reliability problems with the solenoid pilot valves controlling its
steam platen presses. Dirt and debris in compressed air lines were
clogging the valves, resulting in frequent servicing and costly
process downtime. In addition, maintenance and testing were
difficult due to the design of the existing valves.
Solution:
The plywood maker turned to ASCO’s 8342 Series four-way
solenoid valves to solve its operating and maintenance issues.
The pilot valve’s highly forgiving design maximizes reliability and
performance, even in moist and dirty conditions. When maintenance
is required, the valve is easy to service and rebuild, plus a
convenient manual operating mode allows testing without power.
The result: exceptional asset uptime and minimal maintenance.
The company has now standardized on the 8342 Series at all of
its production facilities.
