  • The basics of pneumatic control valves
    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
  • Right-sizing pneumatic motion systems
    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
  • Sorting out the truth about pneumatic standards
    Japanese test methods better predict pneumatic valve performance. SMC follows the latest ISO standards when rating pneumatic valve flow in terms of sonic conductance. Full stroke time of a pneumatic cylinder is inversely proportional to the maximum exhaust flow rate. represents the maximum constant
  • Pneumatic and Electric Actuator Product Guide - Imperial
    For applications involving extreme temperature ranges or corrosive chemicals, to periodic opening or closing of a valve or hundreds of cycles 24 hours a day, pneumatic actuators are required to operate flawlessly under all types of continuous process conditions. EL-O-MATIC E&P Series Pneumatic
  • Mini valve features high flow
    flow rates exceed that of other miniature solenoid valves in its class largely because the coil and body are combined in a single unit with a unique, flow design. Conventional valves have separate coils and bodies. Energizing the X-Valve shifts a stainless-steel plunger and directs flow. A key
  • Pneumatic clamps save set-up time and operator wear
    . The clamps are powered by double-acting air cylinders. The operator shifts a manual four-way pneumatic control valve to close or open the clamps quickly. Typical pneumatic systems include a filter-regulator, pneumatic fourway valve, clamps, fittings, and piping. The type of control-valve actuator depends
  • Pneumatics troubleshooting gets easier
    pneumatic-control system provides basic valve operation, as well as detailed monitoring of electrical solenoids, sensors, wiring, and connections. Called Drive Diagnostic Link (DDL), the system checks that every valve's supply voltage is within acceptable tolerances, solenoid coils operate properly
  • Pneumatics boosts manufacturing efficiency
    Valve terminals keep pace with the latest control systems and communications networks. Festo's CPX valve terminal's modular design lets users install a range of pneumatic valves, fieldbus protocols, and digital and analog I/O. Built-in diagnostics help pinpoint faults such as out-of-tolerance
