Pneumatic plunger operated valves, used for mechanical position sensing in machine automation systems. The linear motion of a moving part that is in-line with the plunger operates the valve. Several plunger profiles are offered; these are conical, radial-edged or flat surfaced all with varied plunger lengths and actuation distances.
Pneumatic plunger valves, constructed from a die-cast zinc aluminium alloy that is machined and lacquered offering strength and reliability, an overall excellent quality product. We offer 2 or 3-way normally closed, or a 5-way plunger valve in either poppet or spool designs. Choose from a standard pneumatic plunger valve or a compact design should space be limited. An air pilot assisted version can be ordered, used when less force is available to actuate the lever for lighter operation.
Order plunger operated valves with a spring return, air pilot return or double plungers. A double plunger is used on machine carriages to reverse the direction of travel. Port sizes are G1/8 as standard. ATEX certification is possible within this range; details are in the data sheets for each product. Visit our online shop for stock and pricing information.
