Pneumatic Control Valves

Provided by: ToolingU

"Pneumatic Control Valves" provides an overview of different common pneumatic valves, including regulating, directional control, relief, flow control, and sequence valves. A pneumatic system uses these various types of valves to control the movement, pressure, direction, and flow rate of compressed air as it moves through the system. The types of valves used and their placement in a pneumatic system can maximize the system's potential to do work. Without pneumatic control valves, operators would not be able to assure the optimal air pressure and directional flow that allows the system to operate efficiently and safely. After taking "Pneumatic Control Valves" users will understand how different pneumatic valves affect the flow of pressurized air in a system. Further they will understand how to evaluate and select the most appropriate components to control pressurized air flow in a pneumatic system.
