Lexington, SC, November 2021 – Weller Tools, the world’s No.1 brand in hand soldering solutions, is pleased to introduce the WFV 60 A stop valve for the Weller WX Soldering Station. The automatic valve opens when the user picks up the soldering iron and closes as soon as it senses the soldering iron is switched off or is entering into sleep mode.

Multiple valves can be used with multiple soldering stations (and also preheaters) in a network all connected to a Zero Smog fume extraction unit.

The fume extractor will automatically adjust its suction speed depending on how many valves are in the open position, thus optimizing filter life and energy consumption.

Each valve in this network can be individually pre-adjusted to balance the entire system, providing equal suction through each valve irrespective of pipe length and other system losses.
