Pneumatic Application Articles
This page provides an overview of articles related to pneumatic applications. Pneumatics is the science of transmitting power using compressed air or inert gas. A pneumatic system consists of a compressor, a receiver or air vessel, air treatment devices, pipes and valves and the equipment to be regulated, such as grippers or cylinders. The most commonly used valve-types are solenoid valves, which control the supply of air to the actuators. Because atmospheric air contains airborne dirt, water vapor, and other contaminants, filters and air dryers are recommended to be used in pneumatic systems to keep the compressed air clean and dry. This improves reliability and service life of the components and the system.

Complete the questions to find suitable valves directly:
The valve is actuated with an electric current through the solenoid (electromagnet).
- Switches directly.
- From 1/8 inch up to 2 inch.
- Normally Closed or Normally Open.
- Only for clean media.
- Uses energy as long as electrically energized.
- (Semi-)direct operated: from 0 bar pressure differential.
- Indirect operated: from ±0.5 bar pressure diff.
- Only one direction of pressure.
- Brass, Stainless Steel or Plastic housing.
- EPDM, FKM, NBR of PTFE seals.
The flow is controlled with a drilled sphere (ball) which rotates around its axis, perpendicular to the bore. The ball rotates with the help of an electric motor.
- Operates from 0 bar.
- Close gradually (±10s).
- Energy efficient.
- 1/2, 3/4 or 1 inch.
- For both flow directions.
- Brass Housing / PTFE sealing.
- Less sensitive to dirt.
NO = Normally Open: The valve is open when the coil is not electrically energized.
