Plastic or stainless steel
The Model 501 Flo-Switch provides a solid-state relay output indicating flow above or below a selected set point. It is ideal for applications with alarms for low- or no-flow conditions, excessive flow, or intermittent flow rates. They are available in plastic or stainless steel construction. Integrated visual indicators display current status. The products may be used with pressures up to 500 psig. McMillan Co.
MICRO NEEDLE VALVE
Designed for applications where space, durability, and light weight are required, the M3 threaded needle valve weighs 2.26 gm and has an installed height of about 10.4 mm. It is ideal for mini cylinders, nozzles, timing circuits, filling heads, bleed vents, and other metering applications. The adjusted flow is designed to remain stable during temperature fluctuations; both the needle and valve seat are manufactured from stainless steel. Beswick Engineering
Short laying length
The company's variable head loss static mixer features a short laying length and accommodates a wide variety of flow rates, with reasonable head loss. It consists of two in-line static mixers in the series: one with a fixed plate and the other pivoting to achieve a mixing range from 0.5 to 10 fps, with a head loss of 3 psi from 0.5 to 8 fps. It is designed to operate over a broad range of mixing rates. Westfall Mfg. Co.
The VM15 features a flow to size rate of 1.0 Cv. It is 15 mm wide and is designed to provide a high performance, cost effective, and value-engineered solution that is easy for customers to use and configure to their individual needs. It is ideal for a variety of applications where space is limited. It is available with DIN rail, through hole, and sub base mounting options. Norgren
Designed as reliable, high capacity, high throughput turbo pumps, the products feature a combination of pumping speeds from 1,200 to 2,100 L/sec and throughput up to 2 standard L/min. They are ideal for high particulate processes in the semiconductor, glass, industrial coating, and R&D applications. All pumps use the same integrated controller with interchangeable peripherals and cables. Pfeiffer Vacuum Inc.
With low pressure drop
The company's check valves are designed to operate without the need for any adjustment or settings. They feature a straight-through design that causes them to have a lower pressure drop than any other check valve designs of the same size, according to the company. They feature all-plastic construction, so they will not stick, jam, or fail as a result of rust or corrosion. They are available to fit 4-, 6-, or 8-inch pipelines. Hayward Flow Control Systems
Double-diaphragm Series 2207 vacuum pumps are designed for users requiring a long-lasting, smooth-operating vacuum pump that can tolerate moderately aggressive media. They are of oil-less design with permanently lubricated bearings and stainless-steel valves. Aluminum components are dichromate conversation treated. Ideal applications include vacuum hold-down devices, sawdust extraction, medical suction, and mild chemical mixing. Rietschle Thomas
The company has released a proprietary product line of two-stage air cylinders; the second stage mounts entirely on the extension of the piston in the first stage for applications that require two independent axial forces operating in line on the same centerline. They are designed for a variety of applications, including medical, industrial, and aerospace. Mack Corp.
Operates without lubrication
Featuring an operating temperature range of -40 to 176F, the 98000 Series control valves are offered with an 8-mm orifice that fills a requirement within the harsh operating environments of the chemical and process industries. They operate without lubrication, and have been type tested to IEC 61508. They are certified to safety integrity level 4, and are available with a variety of protection class solenoids. Norgren
VENTURI VACUUM PUMPS
The company's JV vacuum pumps are lightweight venturi vacuum generators that can be used with high speed, high vacuum, pick-and-place systems, and provide millisecond attach-and-release. They weigh 0.63 oz and can be mounted at the pick-up point. They can also accommodate a variety of suction cups and can be controlled using standard compressed air supply valves and components.
