Proportional Valve Offers Field Adjustment

September 30, 2010
The valve can be fully tuned to an application without being removed from the production process. The valve is ideal for PET blow molding, laser cutting, paint spray, web tensioning, balancing, welding, tire industry, leak testing, and polystyrene foam molding applications where precise pressure control is required. The valve is available with an optional integrated graphic display that quickly presents key data such as outlet pressure, setpoint and pressure switch signals. The valve incorporates a direct-acting solenoid for faster response and higher repeatability. This technology is infinitely adjustable and minimizes resolution loss.
