Quick exhaust valves

The principle of operation of quick release valves

Quick release valves are valves that automatically open the exit path to the atmosphere when the air pressure drops in the exit path.

The task of these valves is to quickly empty the chambers of pneumatic receivers, e.g. actuators.

Thanks to their use, it is possible to significantly increase the speed of movement of the actuator piston, especially single-acting.

In order to obtain the proper effect, quick exhaust valves should be installed directly at the actuator connections to allow for a significant shortening of the used air outflow path to the atmosphere.

The flow depends on the model and is between 2.5 and 4.5 m³ / min.
