Bifold Group introduces their range of direct mount solenoid valves, manifold and accessories for general valve actuator applications. These valves are available in 3/2 or 5/2 5/3 port configurations.

Compact in its design, the solenoid valve features a NAMUR mounting pattern according to VDI/VDE 3845 designed to mount to any NAMUR valve actuator thus reducing actuator response times, space requirements and also negating the need for a back plate. Installation costs are lower as the need for tubing, fittings, brackets and assembly labour are greatly reduced. All mounting screws and seals are included with the valve.

What differentiates the Bifold design to any other on the market is the unique patented mounting/spacer block which is free to rotate through 360°. This feature avoids the solenoid housing from coming into contact with the switch box and ensures the Filter Regulator remains upright at all times.

This range of products also includes the manifold option which incorporates the NAMUR interface kit based on the market leading ‘AXIS’® system, allowing the direct mounting of Filter Regulators, Check Valves, Flow Control Valves, Pressure Relief Valves and Manual Valves etc.

Our system will accommodate all valve actuators in any orientation = NO RESTRICTIONS.

The unique multifunction rotating system includes inlet/exhaust Flow Control Valve and High Flow Quick Exhaust Valve and optional fully rotational Filter Regulator.

This robust design is manufactured from 316L stainless steel with an operating temperature range of -60°C to +180°C and worldwide approvals Ex d, Ex ia, Ex emb and explosion proof. This product range is available with the widest range of override options including (Auto Reset, Spring Return Manual Override, Stayput Manual Override, Manual Reset, Tamperproof Manual Latch and Latch Energised).

All our FP Solenoid valve assemblies have SIL 3 third party certification to IEC 61508.

Headquartered in the UK, The Bifold Group is a major developer and manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic system component technologies for oil and gas (upstream and downstream) and power generation industries. Bifold products are delivered through a large manufacturing and distribution network.
