Why a Pressure Control Valve is Crucial in a Pneumatic System

pressure control valve

The pressure control valve (also known as relief valves) are used to restrict the pressure downstream of a unit. They are utilised mainly to prevent the pneumatic system from overpressure and to ensure safety. Overpressure happens if the flow of water or air is not regulated, which may cause some parts of the system to…

The Standard Types of the Flow Control Valve and Their Functions

In a pneumatic system, flow control valves help in regulating the pressure of fluid flow in a pneumatic system. There are assorted types of flow control valves, and they vary in functions. Variations may be needed for a pneumatic system to operate properly. For instance, two separate pneumatic systems might need different features from a…

Pneumatic Valves: Pneumatic Valve Actuators Automation

pneumatic valves

Pneumatic valves are utilised to do specific things in a pneumatic system, such as controlling the flow rate, pressure, and the amount and direction of air as it moves through an air system at a particular point in time. Using pneumatic actuators for automating control valves is common and only needs the option and installation…

Pressure Control Valve: How Pressure and Flow Control Valves Work

pressure control valve

For a pneumatic system to function, both pressure and flow are needed. However, the relationship between the two is often misunderstood by some. The pressure is measured in pound-force per square inch (psi), and it assesses the performance of an air compressor at any given time. On the other hand, flow is usually measured in…

How Pneumatic Control Systems Utilise a Flow Control Valve

flow control valve

Various industries from around the world make essential use of the hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Although these two systems may function similarly, they are used for different purposes. Non-compressible fluids are used for hydraulics, and pneumatics make use of compressed gases. The flow control valve – also known as a speed controller – are equipment…

A Little History of Pneumatics and Air Rams

air rams

In mechanical engineering, pneumatics – sometimes called compressors or air rams – is the use of air pressure to create motion or some form of mechanical force. Pneumatics is mainly used in industries and factories where compressed air is a necessity. The compressed air is stored in one location and distributed through valves (hence the…
