ASCO™ 316 3-Way Solenoid Valves
The ASCO Series 316, also known as 8316, is a line of high-flow, 3-way solenoid valves, which can be used to pilot large actuators and provide quick closing of large control valves.
The diaphragm poppet design is suitable for controlling air, inert gas and liquids. Its resilient seating achieves tight shutoff.
