The Unique Pressure Control Valve: The Solenoid Valve

line of washing machines

What is a solenoid valve? A solenoid valve is a type of pressure control valve that is electrically controlled. The valve gets its name from the solenoid or electric coil in its centre. This coil acts as a movable ferromagnetic core or plunger. In the rest position, the plunger shuts off a small orifice. An…

A Special Kind of Flow Control Valve: The Poppet Valve

steam engine train

A poppet valve is a type of flow control valve that uses a ball and seat instead of a traditional spool. People don’t realise that their vehicles use a poppet valve as a directional valve every day when they drive to work. Without a poppet valve, a vehicle’s combustion engine wouldn’t be able to function.…

The Homogenising Pressure Control Valve or Nanovalve

pipes and pressure valves

Ever wondered how dairy products are machine homogenised? The homogenising pressure control valve or nanovalve can homogenise dairy products, as well as food, beverages, and even chemical emulsion processes. Nanovalves use pressure to get the best of and improve product viscosity and stability. It also minimises running costs. Generally, nanovalves are high-efficiency homogenising pressure control…

What is a Water Pressure Control Valve Regulator?

water polo fittings

Water pressure control valve regulators, or simply water pressure regulators, are plumbing valves that reduce water pressure from the local supply line to more localised lines. Water pressure can be a bane or a boon when it comes to local lines such as showers or opening the tap in the kitchen sink. You need the…

Choosing the Right Flow Control Valve

valve and gauge

The water, oil, gas, and mining industries are industries that need a network of pipes for their necessary fluids to flow through. So, aside from the pipes, what do all these industries have in common? They all use flow control valve systems to regulate the flow of liquids. Though these industries are different from each…

How a Pneumatic Press Works (With Pneumatic Valves, Of Course)

pneumatic valves

A pneumatic press gets its primary mechanical action from its pressure source derived from compressed air. The mechanical actions from a pneumatic press range from shearing, punching, bending, forming, drawing, extruding, and assembly. Such presses are used in mechanised binderies for a variety of purposes and offer the advantages of speed of operation and cleanliness.…

Fluid Oscillators as Effective Pneumatic Valves or Flow Control Devices

pneumatic valves

Fluid oscillators are pneumatic valves or flow control valve systems based on the bi-stable states of a jet of fluid inside a specially designed flow chamber. Fluid oscillators are mostly found in the aerospace industry and always involve constant improvement in performance and fuel efficiency. Also called sweeping jet actuators or flip flop oscillators, these…

Flow Control Valve Systems in Anaesthesia Machines

flow control valve

When talking about a flow control valve, people tend to think of large water production plants or electricity plants that use flow control valves and other pneumatic valves. But not many people know that different types of pneumatic valves are used in anaesthesia machines. Anaesthesia is a sub-specialty in medicine that has adapted technology to…
