Powerful solenoid valve sets the standard for more performance and less space.

The new VUVG valve from Festo sets new standards in size and the best performance ratio in its class.

In 90 per cent of applications, a smaller size valve compared to existing valves can often be used, but VUVG valves of the the same size achieve greater dynamics and up to 100 per
cent more flow for faster cycle times.

It also helps reduce costs, as well, as it integrates 2 x3/2 way valves in one compact valve housing which reduces the required installation space by half.

Festo’s patented cartridge principle is the result of this valve’s excellent sealing properties. Its seal profile enables vacuum operation, very high flow rates and an extended pressure range of up to 10 bar.

The cartridge principle enables a separated two-pressure operation. With the VUVG, there is no overlapping between the air ducts and a variable electrical connection concept reduces the complexity of ordering and warehousing for all users who require a valve with variable electrics.

As well, the patented electronics box can be replaced with just one click: the valve housing remains the same, only the connection option is changed.

And lastly, ordering is simple and easy thanks to the clearly structured order code.

Broad Range of Options

Capable of pressures up to 10 bar
Valve functions: 5/2, 5/3, 2×3/2
Flow rate (l/min): 100, 220, 380, 750
