Solutions for Success: In-Line Flow Controls

Challenge

We had a customer routing plastic tubing to numerous actuators with flow controls at each port. This created a problem with long runs crossing over each other and also potential kink points. In addition, the position of the actuators made it difficult, at times, to access the flow controls.

 

Solution

By using a series of Parker in-line flow controls stacked together the customer could shorten the long runs from the valve bank to the cylinder ports, thus eliminating the flow controls at the cylinder ports. This made it simple to control speed at the in-line bank of flow controls, which are now located at a point for easy access.

 

Benefits

  • Each flow control is stamped with flow direction (in to out) which prevents mounting errors
  • The use of joining clips guarantees level mounting
  • Ability to disassemble by just removing the clips
  • Small flow control profile saves on space
