Three Reasons to Consider Pneumatic Valves

Some individuals claim that whenever there is a slight leak of air in a pneumatic system that it will break down. Those same individuals are under the impression that pneumatic control systems cannot be trusted. These false ideas are based on half-truths. In fact, pneumatic controls and tools are more than just reliable, they also offer a great deal of power.

There are reasons so many industries and businesses rely on pneumatic control systems.

Pneumatic Controls

Some of the most critical factors for the popularity of pneumatics includes:

Safety- If operated with care, it is almost impossible for a system to blow up or cause other forms of damage. The only way these systems becomes unsafe is if an air hose suddenly gets lose while the nozzle is open. That will never happen if systems are properly maintained and operated. Pneumatic systems are rather safe because they use nothing but compressed air. Certain types of hydraulic fluid and lubricants are toxic and can be potentially dangerous to humans. Also, these systems pose no issues with electrical shocks.

Clean- A pneumatic system, when compared to similar systems, requires minimal cleaning. Pressurized air forces dirt from a system, so blockages are rather uncommon. Even when systems do get dirty or have a blockage, it is easy to take apart systems because there is a small amount of tubing.

Cost- The cost of a new system typically costs less money than other similar technologies. Initial costs are  low because you do not need to invest much in physical materials. You will need pneumatic valves to control the flow of air.
