The asa suction unit has been developed to provide a compact unit in hydraulic systems. The asa butterfly flange with SAE connections allows the combination with an elastic element (rubber compensator) to make a short compensating and economical connection with the pump port. The asa suction unit is screwed to the asa adapter flange, which is welded to the tank. Due to low installation costs and compact design, purchasing asa suction units is cost effective. A switch (mechanical or inductive) can be mounted on the standard block for monitoring matters.
The lever position corresponds to the valve position (can be changed, see butterfly flanges). Thus the aperture angle is well-defined even in mounted state. The handle direction (clockwise or counter clockwise) can be changed by turning the switch bracket. Please note that the butterfly flange may only be opened in mounted state and with greased or lubricated sealing. The adapter flange may only be welded with demounted butterfly flange.
