Mead’s Slide/Lockout Valves (SLV) are designed to comply with OSHA Standard Rule 29 CFR1910.147. SLVs exhaust downstream air to atmosphere when the valve is in the closed position. This prohibits the unexpected cycling of equipment due to stored energy in the air line. These valves can only be locked in the closed position, rendering any downstream machinery or equipment completely inoperable. The aluminum sleeve is anodized bright gold for easy identification.
Easy-Glide Ball Handle Valves
MHL valves provide either 3-way pilot control (MHL-3) or 4-way directional control (MHL-4). To operate MHL valves, simply move the ball handle across the slot on the valve body. The handle rotates a precision-lapped disc to control the directional flow of air. The hardcoat anodized aluminum disc allows virtually effortless handle motion. The handle will hold in any position. Air exhausts through the disc and out to atmosphere.
Mini Solenoid Valves
Dyna-Coil valves are used when you need to convert an electrical signal into a flow of air. 2-way models allow air to flow through the valve when energized. 3-way models allow air to flow through the valve when energized and exhaust when de-energized.
The USV-100 provides alternating outputs from a single input port. The valve has two outputs which are selected alternately by applying a pulsing, on-off air signal to the input port. USV-100 will not function properly with a sustained signal.
Air timers are used to delay the air signal coming in or out of an air component. Depending on the model, the delay may be adjusted from 0.75 to 60 seconds. Input port is indicated by a yellow dot.
Timers are available in either normally closed (NC) or normally open (NO) models. Normally closed models are used to time in and normally open models are used to time out. Once set, timers are accurate for repeatability to 10% with regulated air pressure.
Impulse Relay Valves
Impulse relay valves allow you to shift a double-pressure piloted or double bleed piloted valve, even though there are overlapping pilot signals. Relay valves convert a sustained air flow from a three-way pilot valve into a momentary pulse or bleed, which shifts a control valve and then closes
Stroke Completion Sensors (SCS) mount directly on cylinder ports to provide an air signal when rod motion stops, even when the full stroke length is not used. Stroke completion sensors automatically adjust to variable strokes, replacing limit and reed switches in clamping, holding and sequencing tasks.
Air to Electric Switches
Air to electric switches convert air signals into electrical signals, which is ideal for actuating solenoid power valves or other electric components. Switches may be wired normally closed or normally open.
Dash/Panel Mount Control Valves
2-position ACV valves can be used for four-way directional control or as a three-way pilot valve. Its function indicator has been designed directly into the control knob and is visible only when the valve is in the energized or open position. In the unoperated (closed) position, the indicator ring is concealed within the knob assembly.
Dyla-Trol® Flow Controls
Fine tune the speed of your cylinders with precise-metering DylaTrol® valves. No other flow control provides such accurate control of cylinder motion.
Two-Hand Control Valves
Concurrent actuation of the recessed buttons generates a signal. Releasing one or both buttons immediately stops the signal which cannot be re-instituted until both buttons are again actuated concurrently.
