AIR GUNS

High force, reduced noise

The Super Blast Air Guns are engineered to deliver up to 9.8 lbs of blowing force. They are available with 4, 7, or 12 Super Air Nozzles, which are designed to maximize entrained airflow and force while reducing compressed air use and noise. At full pressure of 80 psig, they have an air consumption of 56, 98, and 168 scfm while providing blowoff force of 3.2, 5.7, and 9.8 lbs. They have a zinc aluminum alloy construction and are attached to an aluminum body. EXAIR Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4396-586

FLOW SWITCH

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.http://rbi.ims.ca/4396-587

SIGHT FLOW INDICATOR

Durable, magnet-less

A durable paddlewheel-style flow indicator with output sensor, the Series SFI-100T sight flow indicator uses no magnets in the paddlewheel to attract ferrous materials. It is constructed of a solid brass body with a tempered glass window for viewing of the red PBT paddlewheel. Units are constructed of all ultraviolet-stabilized materials for outdoor service.

DIAPHRAGM VALVE

Three configurations

Engineered for trouble-free use in applications requiring minimal maintenance and maximum lifetime, the DV22 microvolume diaphragm valve is offered in three configurations: four port internal loop sample injector, six port external loop sampling/switching valve, and 10 port multifunctional diaphragm valve. Lifetime can exceed 1,000,000 cycles at ambient temperature/300 psi or 500,000 cycles at 200C/300 psi. Valco Instruments Co. Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4396-589

DIAPHRAGM PUMP

Larger surface area

The company's 4002 miniature diaphragm pump is engineered with an elongated oval-shaped diaphragm with a larger surface area than a conventional round diaphragm. As a result, it can produce higher flows than a similarly sized pump with a standard diaphragm. It is ideal for applications where space is at a premium, such as gas detectors, air sampling, particle counters, as well as eye surgery equipment. Rietschle Thomashttp://rbi.ims.ca/4396-590

PNEUMATIC VALVE ACTUATOR

Small space applications

The company's Seriece PCD and PCS pneumatic valve actuators feature a four-piston rack-and-pinion design for high torque output. The design is also engineered to permit the actuator to be physically smaller than other design types, making it ideal for applications with tight space requirements. Torque outputs range from 60 to 15,800 lbs/inch, with a minimum inlet air pressure of 80 psi. Haywardhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4396-591

MICRO NEEDLE VALVE

Stainless steel

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 Engineeringhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4396-592

STATIC MIXER

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, according to the company. TexLoc http://rbi.ims.ca/4396-593
