Valve Automation Industry

Versa Home > Industries > Valve Automation Industry

For almost 70 years, Versa's application engineers have been creating unique configurations to solve complex problems in virtually every industry.

In process control systems, reliability is only as good as the solenoid or pilot valve controlling the valve actuator. Versa is an industry leader providing dependable directional control valves for rack and pinion, vane or scotch yoke actuators. Versa offers the solenoid or pilot valve to meet the most demanding requirements.

AEROSPACE

Delays or malfunctions in launch and ground support systems are costly and time-consuming. Only valves sturdy enough to withstand intense vibration and searing flash heat will survive the punishment. With the highly specialized systems required to move and launch flight hardware and military payloads, our ability to rapidly customize all of our valves eliminates complexity in designing the associated pneumatic controls.

CHEMICAL

Leaking control valves lead to leaking profits. Chemical plants must deal with many caustic materials such as acids, fuel additives, bleach, paint additives, photographic chemicals, and fertilizers.

FOOD AND BEVERAGE

In the cost competitive Food & Beverage sector, energy efficiency is a critical lever for managing costs. Versa’s proprietary bubble-tight construction significantly reduces the possibility of leakage and creates the most energy-efficient system available. Also, Versa offers FDA-certified food grade lubricants to prevent air contamination with each valve shift.

OIL AND GAS

A malfunctioning valve can shut down an entire drilling operation. In the oil and gas industry, the possibility is exacerbated by operating in rain, snow, or sleet, and extreme hot and cold temperatures – all of which can be disastrous to most equipment. Versa’s pneumatic valves are the most reliable, field-proven, and longest-lasting on the market. Versa’s proprietary bubble-tight construction significantly reduces the possibility of leakage and creates the most energy-efficient system available. Versa is so committed to quality that we offer a ten-year warranty on all our products.

PHARMACEUTICALS

Versa offers a broad range of control valve options specifically designed to meet the needs sterile environments required in pharmaceutical production. Our chemical-resistant 316 stainless steel valves and accessories are designed and manufactured for wash-down environments.

PULP AND PAPER

The Pulp & Paper sector operates in one of the most abusive industrial environments, using caustic chemicals. Equipment vibration constantly stresses all pneumatic control system components. These dual conditions can drive valve downtime and increased maintenance costs if not controlled. Versa has a range of pneumatic valve options designed to function reliably under the stressful conditions of high vibration and caustic environments.

UTILITIES

Versa’s valves provide the industry’s most reliable service to pneumatic control and automation systems used by Power Generation and Water Treatment customers worldwide. All utilities depend on 100% reliable equipment to help them deliver mission critical commodities. Downtime can be catastrophic to communities and municipalities. The unparalleled reliability of Versa’s pneumatic solenoids enables our utility customers to meet performance targets cost effectively. Our 10-year warranty ensures years of trouble-free service, even in harsh or wet environments.
