How Do Pneumatic Valves Work?

Answer

Pneumatic actuation is a valve that trips by the use of air. At some point in an industrial or manufacturing process, compressed air is released, making a valve to open or close. The mixture of solenoids and pneumatics makes it twofold. Solenoid valves are meant to be used in pneumatic procedures and solenoid valves and pneumatic valves are used together. The combined valve is also known as a piloted valve. The bigger solenoid valve is activated by the smaller pneumatic valve. The pneumatic valve can also be used as an air cylinder enclosed in a main valve. A pneumatic solenoid valve is also called a compressed air pilot valve.
