    • T-port - commonly used as a valve for draining or relieving the downstream pressure. In one position port C is connected to port A, in the second position port A is connected to port B.

Actuators

Pneumatic

  • Double Acting (DA) - pneumatic actuator that requires an air signal to turn it ON and a second signal to turn it OFF.Advantage: Quick operation and lower cost
  • Single Acting (SA) - pneumatic actuator with spring return that requires an air signal to actuate - spring to close.Advantage: Only a single signal required to operate - fail safe in the event of a power or air supply failure
