Manual Air Control Valves for Pneumatic Systems

Manual air control valves are ideal for non-electrical and operator-controlled pneumatic applications. Manual valves come with different actuator types to accommodate your mounting requirements. These valves have a 4-way design to pressurize and exhaust two ports independently. Universal Power Conversion stocks manual pneumatic valves from trusted manufacturers. We have built a reputation for carrying high-quality products and have extensive application knowledge to help you find the best solution for your needs.

Pneumatic Air Control Valve Applications

Each type of manual air control valve has different advantages. Aside from pressure requirements and port sizes, you should also consider your mounting and actuation requirements prior to selecting your air control valve.
2 Position, 3-Way/2-Way Manual Pneumatic Valves: Often used for on/off or diverting flow applications.
2 Position, 4-Way Manual Pneumatic Valves: Used to start, stop or reverse the direction of air flow.
3 Position, 4-Way Manual Pneumatic Valves: Used to start, stop or reverse the direction of air flow. These valves in the center position can have an open or closed center.  That provides a neutral position in addition to the on/settings.

Choosing a Manual Air Control Valve for Your Pneumatic System

Select from various port sizes and actuation types, including foot pedal valves, toggle and rotary style hand levers, and push/pull valves. If you need something other than what we have listed above, our team will help you source the right manual pneumatic valve for your application. Air control valve types include but are not limited to:
  • Hand-Level Manual Valves: These air control valves are best for panel mounting applications and come with a detent or spring-return actuator.
  • Push-Pull Button Manual Valves: Achieve different positions by pushing or pulling the actuator. These manual valves have a compact footprint to fit in tight spaces. The detent actuator helps keep the valve in position.
  • Foot Pedal Manual Valves: Select this option for applications requiring hands-free operation of your pneumatic system. These manual pneumatic valves have a non-locking foot pedal and spring-return actuator.
