Pneumadyne is committed to developing pneumatic products that fit a variety of fluid handling requirements. Whether we are introducing a new line of barbed fittings or directional control valves, you’ll find the most current Product Announcements here on our What’s New page.
We recently expanded our Air Jet Base offering to make it even easier to include Pneumadyne Air Jets in your circuit. Our new Base with 1/8 NPT threads is recommended for direct connection in a manifold or valve port. The .25Ø of our Push-in style base was designed for use with 1/4 OD push-to-connect ports; ideal for installation in the output port of Pneumadyne's "11" Series control valves.
Pilot Operated Check Valves
Pneumadyne’s new Pilot Operated Check Valves are ideal for reliably holding an actuator position in a variety of applications. These rugged valves feature a 1/4 or 1/8 NPT output port which mounts directly on a cylinder, minimizing space requirements and easing installation. The input port swivels to accommodate valve alignment and contains a 1/4 push-in or 1/8 NPT (F) connection to speed tubing installation. With a maximum operating pressure of 150 psi, these valves provide flow rates up to 22 scfm at 100 psi.
Miniature Precision Regulator
Pneumadyne’s new Miniature Precision Regulator offers highly accurate air pressure control in a compact package; ideal for limited space applications. This precision machined, high quality regulator features an output pressure range up to 100 psi and high flow rate of 4.5 scfm. With a maximum supply pressure of 250 psi, our Precision Regulator is extremely dependable and repeatedly returns to the set pressure when turned off and on. Exceptionally tight design tolerances effectively minimize vibration allowing the regulator to remain stable under changing operations.
Pilot Operated Cartridge Valves
Pneumadyne’s Pilot Operated Cartridge valves offer a high flow rate in a compact package. Designed for integration in a pneumatic circuit’s valve block, these .250 inch and .500 inch orifice valves can be used as either a 2-Way or 3-Way function. Our exclusive PneuTef™ plating process results in a smooth, slippery finish which extends product life and also allows the valves to be used in both lubricated and non-lubricated air applications.
2-Position Toggle Valves
Our new 2-Position Valves are ideal for use in rugged applications. The combination of the solid aluminum body and stainless steel toggle provides the strength needed to withstand harsh conditions. These 2-Way & 3-Way valves feature 1/8 NPT (F) ports and provide a flow rate of 41 scfm at 125 psi. Both detented and momentary toggles are offered to fit actuation requirements. For extreme environments, heavy duty toggles are also available.
