Pneumatic Components

Pneumatic Components

Pneumatics is a branch of engineering that makes use of inert gas or compressed air. Pneumatic components are the devices that deliver and control the gas or pressurized air within a pneumatic system. There are many different types of pneumatic devices that are used within a pneumatic system, some of which are detailed below.

 

Air Filters, Regulators & Lubricators 

To protect your pneumatic system and equipment UPC offers top quality air preparation equipment from the industry’s leading manufacturers. We stock air filters, regulators, and lubricators from Airtec, CKD, MFD Pneumatics, Pneumadyne, and Tsunami, making it easy to find the best air preparation device(s) for your compressed air system.

Pneumatic Valves

Pneumatic valves come in a wide range of configurations, making it easy to create a compressed air system that is perfectly tailored to the user’s performance and application requirements. Our inventory includes mechanical valves, solenoid valves, and air-operated valves for all manifold or inline configurations. We also offer terminal valves with DeviceNet and Profibus capabilities.  

Pneumatic Cylinders

Pneumatic cylinders, also known as air cylinders, are mechanical Actuators that use compressed air to produce force in a linear motion. Pneumatic cylinders are often used because they are quieter and cleaner than other methods, such as hydraulics or electric motors. UPC stocks pneumatic cylinders in a variety of styles and configurations. We can help you find the right components for your compressed air system project requirement needs.

Pneumatic Orifices & Interface Components 

Universal Power Conversion, Inc. (UPC) supplies pneumatic orifices and interface components that are ideal for instrumentation, medical, and industrial applications. UPC offers a large variety of pneumatic orifices and interface components from the industry’s leading manufacturers, including Air Logic, O’Keefe, Mem-Co, and Pneumadyne.

Vacuum Components

Within pneumatic air systems, a vacuum is typically used for picking up rigid products by using a vacuum generator or Venturi and vacuum cups or grippers. Universal Power Conversion, Inc. (UPC) supplies high-performance pneumatic vacuum components that will meet or exceed your performance requirement needs. UPC offers a huge selection of pneumatic vacuum components from the industry’s best manufacturers, including Air Logic, Airtec, and CKD. We have vacuum components in sizes and configurations to fit any compressed air system.

Pneumatic Manifolds

Pneumatic manifolds are ideal for branching out supply lines to multiple locations in your system. Universal Power Conversion, Inc. (UPC) supplies pneumatic manifolds that provide a distribution point for compressed air (or other gases and fluids) to redirect pneumatic power to equipment throughout your facility. We stock pneumatic manifolds from Polyconn, Pneumadyne, and other leading manufacturers. 

Pneumatic Component Applications 

Pneumatic systems are commonly used in industrial applications.  They are powered by compressed air.  An air compressor powers cylinders, air motors, and other pneumatic devices. A pneumatic system is controlled through manual and/or automatic valves. Pneumatic components are found in a variety of industries, some of which include:
  • Packaging
  • Assembly
  • Robotic cells
  • Medical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • And much more
UPC has extensive experience in these industries. Let us help you choose the correct components you need.

Pneumatic Component Advantages

There are many distinct advantages associated with pneumatic components, some of these include:
  • Simplicity of the systems- The components offer simple construction designs.
  • Reliability – Pneumatic systems generally have long operating lives and require little maintenance.
  • Safety – Components can be loaded to the point of stopping. “Overload Safety”
  • Temperature – Compressed air is insensitive to temperature fluctuations.
  • Cleanliness – Un-lubricated air is clean on exhaust and through leaking pipes and fittings.
  • Explosion Proof- Compressed air offers no risk of explosion or fire.
  • Speed- Compressed air is a very fast working media. This enables high working speeds.
