Product Description

The SMC AS elbow air flow control valve with screwdriver adjusting is made of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) plastic and nickel-plated brass with male metric threads on the inlet port and a push-to-connect tube fitting on the outlet port. The valve body is made of PBT for strength and light weight, and the internal metal parts are made of nickel-plated brass for resistance to corrosion. This valve is designed to be located downstream of the cylinder for meter-out control. Air flow is set with a flat head screwdriver and there are eight needle rotations for precise manual control of the flow rate. The push-to-connect outlet fitting allows a one-touch connection to nylon, soft nylon, or polyurethane tubing. The maximum operating pressure is 145 pounds per square inch (psi), and the ambient and fluid temperature range is 23 to 140 degrees F (-5 to 60 degrees C).

Air flow control valves (also called speed controllers) regulate the flow of compressed air into or out of pneumatic cylinders to control the speed of motion of the piston in the cylinder. The valves have an adjustable metering needle and a check valve to control the flow in only one direction. Air entering the valve is blocked by the check valve and forced to pass through the needle valve, and the position of the needle is adjusted to determine the rate of flow. Pneumatic systems with cylinders are used for applications such as truck and train air brakes, air compressors, and tools for mining, manufacturing, and construction.
