ROSS poppet valves are the product of choice for the all the major container plants Globally. With its proven reliability and performance plus consistent switching times it has proven itself over many decades in this challenging and unforgiving environment. Its internal construction has been carefully calculated to produce strong shifting and sealing forces in each direction which results in a design which ensures high speed, repeatability and high shifting forces over the life of the valve.
ROSS poppet valves have positive sealing with no sliding action to prevent damage and wear. They are also self-cleaning and dirt tolerant thanks to the smallest flow-through area across the poppet’s seal and seat which produces a high-enough velocity to blow out all dirt and foreign matter. Plus, the valve is self-compensating for wear by automatically changing stroke length due to height changes in the valve seal from burnishing. These valves are designed for repeatability, high-temperature service, high speed, and high-shift consistency over the life of the valve.Browse Our Catalog
Applying proportional valve technology, which combines conventional valve know-how with electronics and sensors, makes it possible to introduce intermediate operating positions, in steps, within a range of 0 to 100%, with full adjustability and repeatable performance. The ROSS proportional valve is a poppet design with direct acting solenoids that were specifically developed for applications, which must be pressurized very accurately to control cylinder applications or where the system pressure must be kept at a constant flow in blowing functions.
Other proportional valves in the market either utilize a constant or contained pilot air design, which continually adjust the pilot orifice to maintain the correct output pressure for the main valve, which makes them limited in both speed and accuracy of operation. ROSS valves are available as plug and play solutions with various interfaces and customer specific electrical supply options or we can fine-tune the operation to your individual requirements.Questions?
