ASCO 330 Series volume booster from Emerson

14-Aug-2017

The new ASCO 330 Series volume booster can be used in control operations, on/off applications and when partial stroke testing is required, its unique features enable improved reliability, easier maintenance and commissioning

ASCO 330 series volume booster with optional solenoid valve assembly

Emerson has introduced the ASCO 330 Series volume booster to enable faster valve opening and closing times.

Ideally suited for use in the upstream and downstream oil and gas market, the valve is flexible, robust and highly reliable. Available in stainless steel and aluminium, the booster complements other actuator control products from Emerson. These include switch boxes, solenoid valves, filter regulators and positioners.

Initially launched in 1/2" and 1" sizes, the volume booster has been designed to simplify installation and maintenance tasks. The NAMUR pad mount for the solenoid valve makes the assembly compact and decreases response time.

A unique connection option enables the valve to be removed from the line without disturbing the pipework, simplifying maintenance and reducing mean time to repair (MTTR).

A modular inlet filter, means it is not necessary to have a high flow filter regulator upstream of the valve. A compact filter regulator upstream of the solenoid valve is normally sufficient.

The combination of material options, certification and because the booster can be used for on/off or control leads to simplified engineering and reduced holding of spares. The ASCO booster is SIL3 capable and has a wide range of certification, including ATEX and CUTR.

Furthermore, the valve has been designed for use in temperatures from -60°C to +90°C, ensuring compatibility with environments ranging from the Arctic to the desert.
