Pneumatic Tubing & Accessories
Air control valves are fundamental components of any pneumatic system. Selecting the right air control valves to regulate system pressure, direction of flow, and rate of flow is crucial when designing fluid power circuitry. If the pneumatic valve is too big for your application, you will be wasting air and money. If it’s too small, the actuator will not function properly.

Things to Consider When Selecting Pneumatic Valves & AccessoriesPneumatic air control valves are used to control the pressure, rate and amount of air or gas that flows through your pneumatic system. Air control valves work by blocking or directing pressurized airflow, which controls the speed and sequence of a pneumatic operation. Miniature air control valves may feature one or several ports, depending on the number of flow paths the pneumatic system contains.
Selecting the right size of air control valve for your pneumatic system will help provide consistent system pressure, direction of flow and rate of flow. Having the correct size connector also prevents fitting malfunction and the loss of gas or air pressure.
Important considerations in selecting your miniature air control valve include:
- Number of ports needed
- Required valve positions (typically 2 or 3)
- Directional flow requirements
- Functionality of the directional control valve
- Control valve response time
- Power and connection requirements
- Specialty requirements
We Offer a Wide Selection of Pneumatic Valves to Meet Your Application NeedsOur miniature pneumatic valves feature superior designs and are constructed from high quality materials, which results in extremely long product life. Additional features include swivel ports for critical alignment, anodized or electroless nickel plated components for corrosion resistance, and miniature size for limited space applications.
To ensure that your plumbing, flow, and operating needs are met, Pneumadyne manufactures a wide selection of directional and circuit control valves (also called switches.) For plumbing convenience, our 2-Way, 3-Way and 4-Way pneumatic valves feature threaded, barbed and push-to-connect ports. Flow rates for these air control valves range from 2.90 to 57 scfm at 125 psi to accommodate system requirements.
In addition to a variety of porting options, our Shuttle Valves and Check Valves feature a low cracking pressure to quickly allow flow through the output port. Pneumadyne Quick Exhaust Valves are able to relieve 100 in3 of air in one to six seconds, which increases the cycle speed of a cylinder. Finely threaded stems allow the gradual adjustment of Flow Controls and Needle Valves to match system requirements, while our Pressure Regulators are ideal for maintaining a preset downstream pressure.
Pneumatic Components & Systems Manufacturing of Custom Pneumatic ValvesPneumadyne manufactures a full line of “standard” miniature pneumatic valves. However, we can also assist you with design and engineering of custom air control valves or full pneumatic control systems to meet your unique requirements.
