ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) today introduced the Pure-Flo® VSP+, adding new features to the cost-effective and proven Value Switch Package (VSP) product offering.
The VSP+ incorporates a mechanical self-setting feature, which reduces calibration time. Once the switch is installed on the process valve, the operator simply strokes the actuator to set the switch. This feature will save countless hours of calibration time during diaphragm change-outs and valve commissioning.
To improve visual position indication from a distance, the VSP+ incorporates high output open, closed and power LEDs. This allows the operator to safely and quickly evaluate process status, oftentimes troubleshooting from the ground.
Capable of withstanding typical wash-down media, the VSP+ extends the capability of the standard VSP. It is packed with features that fulfill the most demanding requirements of today's critical bioprocessing systems.
"The VSP+ addition to the Pure-Flo product line continues ITT's effort to reduce our customers' total cost of ownership," said Paul McClune, Global Product Manager for ITT Engineered Valves. "The ease of calibration and high visibility position indication will directly improve maintenance efficiency and lower overall maintenance costs."
The VSP+ is available for ½- to 2-inch (DN 15-50) valves and can be specified with mechanical silver, mechanical gold, PNP and Namur* switches. All VSP+ offerings are rated for 24V DC operation.
*LEDs are not included on Namur switches due to hazardous location applications.
