NORGREN's 15mm VM15 valve island provides a flow rate of 1000L/min while meeting the standards set by the 10mm VM10. Its high flow rate and small size allow systems to be designed at a reduced cost and in a reduced space.

This compact design, combined with an engineered polymer construction, allows it to be used a wide range of industries and in harsh environments. It is particularly suited to applications that require chemical wash down.

Installation times are reduced by integrated push-in fittings. Should machine specifications change the configuration can be changed rapidly with interchangeable valve types. The modular design also allows extra valves to be added. All wiring connections for the VM series are made to one face of the unit for tidiness and protection.

The VM series is available with DIN rail, through hole, and sub base mounting options. Valve islands can be configured with four to 16 stations, with single or double solenoids. With manual overrides and a large number of tube fitting sizes available the range includes over fifteen million possible combinations.

Norgren provides a software configuration tool online and on CD, providing the customer with a part number and dimensions. Customers can also download 2D and 3D CAD drawings in 13 file formats.

The 430L/min VM10 has also been upgraded with additional mountings, 90° multipole connectors for applications that need additional space savings and extra customer labelling options.
