How to Adjust a Flow Control Valve

man adjusting valve

A flow control valve is used on many gas, plumbing, and mechanical dispensing systems and devices. The best example of a flow control valve is the crank valve on a garden hose that regulates the flow of water when the valve is turned in the open direction. Flow control valve adjustments are similar on most…

Air Rams: What is a Telescopic Cylinder?

telescopic cylinder

A telescopic cylinder is a specially designed hydraulic cylinder or pneumatic cylinder with an air rams pulley system that provides an exceptionally long output length from a very compact retracted length. The collapsed length of a telescopic cylinder can be 20 to 40% of the fully extended length, depending on the number of stages. Some…

Flow Control Valve: Why You Need to Adjust Your Pressure Regulator

closeup of oxygen tank port

Pressure regulators are high performing cylinders or valves that are designed to provide reliable control of pressure in the various stages of a flow system. The output pressure of a pressure regulator is sensed through a diaphragm or flow control valve. This in turn decompresses or compresses a spring inside the regulator. The compression of…

Types of Pneumatic Valves: The Pneumatic Gripper

leading brand of pnuematic gripper manufacturer

Pneumatic grippers are pick-and-place machines that use compressed air to operate gripper jaws that are also called gripping fingers. These fingers, almost similar in design to human fingers, help in holding, grasping, and releasing work or load items. Commonly, grippers have two fingers that can be parallel or angular, or three fingers with single or…
