Sporlan Launches a Conversion Kit to Retrofit a Parker A9 Outlet Pressure Regulating Valve to a Sporlan Stepper Motor Driven Electric Valve

Orlando, FL January 25, 2016 – Sporlan Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, introduces a kit that permits easy conversion of a Parker A9 mechanical outlet pressure regulators into a Sporlan modulating, stepper motor driven electric valve. This kit joins the already launched A8, SPORT and SORIT mechanical pressure regulating valves.


By utilizing the existing valve body installed in the system, there is no brazing required to complete the conversion, saving considerable time and expense. The conversion kit reduces the seal surface area of the installed valve, making this an ideal upgrade opportunity versus a seal rebuild, or even as a full store scheduled retrofit.


“Once the retrofit is complete, you will find that the solution pays for itself through improvements in system performance, and through future serviceability and diagnostic capabilities,” said Dustin Searcy, Sporlan Electric Valve Product Manager.


For optimal performance, the conversion kit can be paired with a Sporlan Pressure or Temperature Control.
