Pneumatic System Components
Pneumatic system components create air-operated systems for conveying, cooling, and drying applications. Air amplifiers boost air output to improve efficiency. Air cylinders have an air-powered piston that provides force to move objects. Air knives clean, dry, cool, or move parts along a conveyor. Booster regulators increase and adjust pressure in air supply lines. Cylinder position sensors confirm a cylinder operation, detect positioning, and count piston cycles. Pneumatic check valves prevent backflow to maintain proper airflow and pressure. Pneumatic grippers pick up and move components. Pneumatic safety valves shut down or release excess air from overpressurized systems. Vacuum ejectors create a vacuum to pull items along a conveyor. Vacuum pads allow robotic arms to pick up workpieces. Vortex coolers and tubes produce cold air from compressed air for cooling equipment enclosures, electronic controls, machining operations, and more.
