Some of our standard valves are rated for hydraulic service. Please note however many also need options to assure trouble-free hydraulic system performance. Contact Versa’s friendly expert Technical Sales team to determine the exact specifications you will need. Versa’s T Series is specifically designed for hydraulic service and our V Series can also be used for hydraulic service in low pressure (<100 psi/6.89 bar) applications.

Some of our standard valves are rated for water service but water is tricky – so it “depends!” Where appropriate we will recommend and specify the correct Water Service (WS) options to assure trouble-free pneumatic system performance. Contact Versa’s friendly expert Technical Sales team and be ready to discuss the type of water in your system, your operational requirements and the type of valve actuation you will be using. They will quickly determine your needs and advise on the correct valve options for your Water Service application. The WS option is limited to Versa V Series and T Series.

Reversing the flow through a V&T series valve may result in the valve not functioning correctly because the internal seals could be damaged. Please see “The Anti-Extrusion Principal.” Please note there may be options or other products that may be right for your application. Contact Versa’s friendly expert Technical Sales team for assistance in recommendations for your specific application.

Absolutely. Many if not all Versa valves are rated for natural gas applications. Please note however Versa also offers a Natural Gas Service option to enhance the performance and improve product life in a natural gas service. Contact Versa’s friendly expert Technical Sales team and ask about the “NGS” suffix details. Available on Versa V Series, B Series, V-316 Series and C-316 Series.
