Directional valves such as Parker Hannifin's B3G-Series threeway (left) and four-way valves are often used to control pneumatic operations. Directional-control valves are vital in any pneumatic circuit, directing or blocking airflow to control the speed or sequence of operations. One method...

Consider every system component to ensure top performance with minimal losses. I am disappointed every time I see the flow coefficient used to size a valve without consideration given to the other components in a pneumatic circuit. In the old days, a focus on the valve alone often worked because...

...object to this filter location, claiming that it "starves " the pump inlet, so the filter may be located at other points in the circuit, such as on the return line, in a pressure line, or on a bypass line. Filtration for pneumatic systems is handled quite differently. In most industrial pneumatics...

Here's a step-by-step approach to efficiently designing systems that work right the first time. Pneumatic sequence controllers provide step-by-step system operation. Sequence valves and other components mount to the manifold subplates. A selector valve gives the option of one-cycle operation...

Motion control today takes place under the guidance of computers, solid-state logic, or pneumatic sequencers. These devices can take on a variety of forms and provide control on different levels. Controllers can be divided into four basic types. devices consist of a few integrated circuits combined...

...forces. Selecting and sizing pneumatic valves for a circuit is a bit more involved. Initial selection criteria include the type of valve and the operations it must perform; how it's turned on and off;...

Every year, workers are unnecessarily exposed to hazardous energy sources such as mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, gravity or other energies utilized by machines in manufacturing, during servicing, maintenance, or setting up equipment. Accidental start-up of machinery...

Most pneumatic system designers are familiar with the flow coefficient as a means of gauging flow through various fluid-power components. Unfortunately, there is a common misconception in the industrial community that doubling a valve's flow coefficient, or conductance, , cuts actuator stroke time...

Sizing Pneumatics for Performance and Efficiency Consider how every component interacts to design better air circuits. * Traditional techniques size pneumatic circuits based on valve flow. * To improve performance and energy efficiency, consider every component that causes flow restrictions...

...by mechanical levers. The earliest, pre-strain gage force sensors included hydraulic and pneumatic designs. In 1843, English physicist Sir Charles Wheatstone devised a bridge circuit that could measure electrical resistances. The Wheatstone bridge circuit is ideal for measuring the resistance changes that occur...
