Founded in 1921, Ross Controls develops and produces high quality pneumatic valves & systems. It has over sixty years of experience designing & producing monitored redundant valves for safety applications. The DM2 is the latest control-reliable valve series for category 4 applications. The SV series has integrated double pole double throw switch to verify valve function for category 2 and 3 applications. For pneumatic energy isolation, the L-O-X® series provides a full line of manual lockout products. Ross safety-related products meet or exceed the global safety requirements for machine safeguarding and energy isolation and are supported by Ross' experienced global safety team. For robotic innovation, Ross developed one of the most advanced proportional pressure regulation units for faster, more precise robotic coating and dispensing applications, while reducing paint consumption, overspray and VOCs.

ROSS CONTROLS® Introduces Dale Series CP & CX Compact Poppet Valves and Manifolds

POSTED 11/13/2009

(TROY, MI) – ROSS CONTROLS is pleased to announce the release of its Dale Series CP and CX compact poppet valves and manifolds to the market. These cost effective valves offer customers a super high-flow product in a small, manifold-ready design. Continuing ROSS’ 78-year tradition of innovation and reliability, the Series CP and CX have a dirt-tolerant poppet design and continuousduty rating which ensure long service life in a broad array of applications.

The Series CP and CX 2- or 3-way valves are available in normally-open, normally-closed and remote pilot configurations. The 2-way valves range from 3/8 to 2-1/2” pipe size with an impressive Cv range of 3.5 to 100. This high-flow capability is a unique and valuable feature in such a compact valve manifold design. The 3-way valves range from 1/2 to 1” pipe size and have a Cv range of 3.6 to 12.3.

These valves can be ordered with inline or manifold base-mounted configurations (with throughholes), depending on the application requirements. This manifold capability allows customer to save time and money otherwise spent on piping and reduces potential leak paths, which saves energy. For added flexibility, the valves are available with customer-specified manifolds that can combine normally-open, normally-closed, solenoid pilot or remote pressure control operation together in one manifold to create simple valve systems for traditionally complicated applications. For example, a common application for these valves is on equipment where media of different pressure levels (including vacuum) may need to be applied sequentially to a common work piece. Instead of piping up several valves together with hard pipe, the Series CP and CX valves can be configured into a common manifold. This is mostly possible due to the valves’ revolutionary port pressure independence which can solve many configuration issues and provide customers with infinite design possibilities.

The Dale Series CP and CX valves and manifolds are suitable for many applications:

  • Pulp and Paper
  • Steel Mills- Pickling
  • Packaging- Food and Chemical
  • Power Generation
  • Industrial Mineral
  • Vacuum
  • Leak Test (Series CX)

For applications where weight is a consideration, the Series CP and CX valves are a great solution because of their lightweight anodized aluminum alloy construction. Due to their leak tight design, the Series CX models are ably equipped for leak testing applications. Whatever the application, though, customers can look forward to time savings and ease of maintenance because the valves provide nonlube service and its manifolds can be serviced or repaired in minutes.
