Pressure balanced pneumatic valves offer ultimate versatility when designing complex, or uniquely simple pneumatic plumbing systems. But that is only the beginning.
Balanced valves offer many functions including; normally closed or normally open; 2-way or 3-way; selector or diverter, all in the same valve. Available in a poppet design stem, these valves will yield optimum performance with media being air or inert gas, clean, dry, lubricated, or laden with some media impurities.
Balanced valves are highly reliable and offer bubble tight sealing; The balance design neutralizes internal forces generated by pressurized media, resulting in shifting forces of the coil and return spring to be optimized, sealing the poppet to attain tight leakage specifications.
A result of balancing a valve design offers high flow in a smaller space. Results of maximized flow path, balanced design, and optimized solenoid magnetic circuit achieves high flow in limited space. Perfect in a time when factory space is limited.
Applications; Accumulated benefits of a balanced valve work well for factory automation, test fixtures, medical equipment, and analytical instrumentation. In other words, balanced valves can be used for many applications. For one thing, they are small, secondly the offer high flow, and thirdly they can be plumbed in so many different configurations. I like to use balanced valves in my pneumatic circuits whenever I can. Simplicity in pneumatic circuits is a good design, and reduces cost, while making troubleshooting and future repair so much easier.
CONCLUSION; There are many valve choices for today’s design engineer to choose from. Balanced valves offer many features and variations in one component, simplifying the design, cost and physical size of the project or device. Therefore, shop floor managers, and repair teams will realize more up time in their manufacturing process.
