Hydracon Expands Ocean Submersible Subsea Solenoid Valve Product Line

Hydracon Company has received a significant order from an undisclosed customer for its subsea solenoid valves and pressure switches.

Continuing to lead the industry in creativity and technology, Hydracon also announces its new model ocean submersible Miniature Solenoid Valve 1719-100.

These new solenoid valves provide significant weight and space advantages for use on new generation lightweight and compact subsea control systems. Specifically designed for Oil & Gas Deepwater Drilling, Production, and Intervention Systems. The Company is looking forward to new ventures in Subsea Processing.

The solenoid valves are specifically created for harsh environment applications. The sealed construction of the solenoids conforms to IP68 of IEC529 standards for continuous immersion in water in ambient pressures to 4,500 psi (10,000 ft ocean depth). In addition, the solenoid valves are corrosion resistant in seawater, internally and externally.

The new Model 1719-100 environmentally sealed Solenoid Valve is a latching model, for an operating pressure of 3,000 psi differential, and having a flow capacity of 0.1 inch ESEOD. The solenoids are rated at 3.0 amp @ 24vdc and are provided with underwater connectors. Major advantages of this miniature series are its small size, low weight (only about 3.5 lbs), and low power.

As a leading designer and producer of subsea solenoid valves and sensors, Hydracon offers one of the industry's most extensive selections of environmentally sealed and subsea products. The company presently manufactures a variety of other products: pressure switches, proximity, limit, push-button, rotary, diver-operated, and depth switches. The switches feature: zero power consumption, 2-wire system, insensitivity to the ambient pressure, and low hysteresis.

Customers requiring high quality, trouble-free performance, and high reliability recognize the value of the company's products. Qualification testing and customer performance reports establish product reliability. The need for high reliability of remote systems outweighs the high costs of unreliability.
