The Asco Numatics product line in North America consists of more than 50,000 valves, air-preparation equipment and position indicators. Asco products include solenoid pilot valves, angle-body piston valves, linear and rotary indicators, valve-monitoring systems, redundant control systems, and pressure sensors.
