Valve Islands

Valve Islands

Valve Islands are commonly used on machine installations to reduce assembly and downtime and provide easier fault diagnosis. Valve Islands are configured individually to suit your needs and application.

Valve islands are a collection of valves mounted into one unit, reducing pipework, electrical connections and complexity. We have been offering valve islands for twenty years, currently with the VR, VM and VS series.

Flexibility and modularity have reached new levels with the Norgren VR Valve Island range. A simple plug-in, sub-base style design allows for valves to be easily exchanged for easy installation and maintenance. Expanding the size and functionality of your Valve Island to match the changing demands of your application is a simple “plug and play” experience.

VM has a lightweight, high strength polymer manifold, whilst VS has a diecast aluminium base system, conforming to an ISO dimensional standard, with a choice of soft seal (high flow) or glandless (high cycle life) spool technology.

Valve Island Ranges


VR10

VR10 has a ZnDC and ADC body, with aluminium spool and NBR seals offering robust yet lightweight construction. It achieves a high flow rate (5/3, 270 l/min; 2x3/2 and 5/2, 220 l/min) from a 10mm valve width. IP40 and IP65 units are available, and there is no restriction on installation orientation. 24V DC & 12V DC Multipole, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT and IO-Link variants are available.


VM10

VM10 has PPA co-polymer body and end plates, with aluminium spool and NBR seals, making it compact and lightweight; the spool valve is indirectly actuated. It achieves a high flow rate (5/2, 400 l/min; 2x3/2 and 5/3, 350 l/min) from a 10mm valve width. Individually wired units are rated IP40 protected, with Multipole and Fieldbus units IP65. Valve slices have integral push-in fittings (PIF) of 3mm, 4mm and 6mm diameter.


VM15

VM15 has PPA co-polymer body and end plates, with aluminium spool and NBR seals, making it compact and lightweight; the spool valve is indirectly actuated. It achieves a high flow rate (5/2, 1000 l/min; 2x3/2, 965 l/min and 5/3, 900 l/min) from a 15mm valve width. Individually wired units are rated IP40 protected, with Multipole units IP65. Valve slices have integral push-in fittings (PIF) of 6mm, 8mm and 10mm diameter.

VR15

VR15 has a ZnDC and ADC body, with aluminium spool and NBR seals offering robust yet lightweight construction. It achieves a high flow rate (5/3, 590 l/min; 2x3/2, 460 l/min and 5/2, 520 l/min) from a 15mm valve width. IP40 and IP65 units are available, and there is no restriction on installation orientation. 24V DC & 12V DC Multipole, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT and IO-Link variants are available.


VS18

VS18 has a die-cast aluminium body and sub-base conforming to ISO 15407-2 Size 18mm. Solenoid pilot operated dual spool technology offers options for either glandless spool (long life) or softseal (high flow – 2x2/2, 550 l/min; 2x3/2, 600 l/min; 5/2 and 5/3, 650 l/min). The units have integrated fieldbus and are field expandable with single add-on stations. Connectivity is via universal PNP/NPN 24V d.c. Multipole.


VS26

VS26 has a die-cast aluminium body and sub-base conforming to ISO 15407-2 Size 26mm. Solenoid pilot operated dual spool technology offers options for either glandless spool (long life) or softseal (high flow – 2x2/2, 1150 l/min; 2x3/2, 1250 l/min; 5/2 and 5/3, 1350 l/min). The units have integrated fieldbus and are field expandable with single add-on stations. Connectivity is via universal PNP/NPN 24V d.c. Multipole.
