Solutions Provided by ASCO Numatics

ASCO’s solutions would include some or all of the following products, depending on the complexity of the application and the nature of the project (retro-fit, expansion or build).

Solenoid Pilot Valves

Designed to operate at high cycles with long periods of dormancy, therefore providing ensured action in demanding applications, such as those found in Power generation. ASCO’s Pilot Solenoid Valves include features such as high flows, manual overrides, are explosion proof and are suitable for networks with low power limitations.


With a large range of cylinders that are used to open and close large orifices, available in bore size up to 24”, ASCO’s cylinders are suited to the harsh environments typical of Power generation systems.

General Purpose Solenoid Valves

ASCO’s solenoid valves are a superior product for turbine lubrication systems and ignite burner no.2 fuel lines. Their proven technology makes them a reliable and costs-effective product for two-way and on-of process valves.

Filters, Regulators & Lubricators

ASCO’s filters, regulators and lubricators can be used to control pressure or meet filtration requirements for your pneumatic equipment in your application. With multiple configurations available, flexibility and suitably needs are adequately addressed.

Power Pulse Valves

ASCO’s pilot valves are designed for dust collector applications, they offer high flow rates and fast opening and closing to produce reliable and economical operations. They can be integral or remotely installed and have quick mount connections to eliminate time-consuming installations.

Pressure Switches

Pressure switches play a vital role in a Power generation system. ASCO’s high quality sensors  are designed for longevity with ensured repeatability.

Redundant Control System

This system is a redundant pilot valve system that acts as single 3-way valve and provides the ability to perform automatic, online testing of the redundant solenoid valves ad well as automatic partial stroke testing of the process valves. This product should be used in high reliably or critical applications and is certified per IEC 61508 and is SIL 3 capable.

The main benefits an ASCO solution would deliver to a Power Generation application is the level of experience ASCO’s engineers have in Power applications. They understand the importance of reliability and have experience in specifying products and solutions to meet power processing needs. This expertise is accessible for end-users through ASCO wide network of fully trained technical and application support staff.
