Transair Air System

Sensing Valves

Sensing valves determine mechanically whether the suction pad is in contact with the workpiece. If so, they open the vacuum line.

Basic Data

  • Flow rate: 0.7 to 9.6 m³/h Connection thread: G1/8” to G1/2”

    Application Areas

  • Touch valve as spring-loaded sensing plunger for mechanically checking the coverage of the suction pad.
  • Application

  • Touch valve for applications where some of the suction pads may not always be in contact with the workpiece.
  • Vacuum line to a suction pad is opened only if a workpiece is detected by a mechanical sensor.
  • May be installed in any orientation.
  • Design

  • Touch valve with spring-loaded plunger and protective cap.
  • Type TVN with moulded suction-pad nipple for direct mounting.
  • Does not react if the suction pad is only partially in contact with the workpiece.
  • Your Benefits

  • The vacuum line is opened only if the suction pad is in contact with the workpiece (mechanical sensing).
  • Can also be used for porous workpieces.
  • Also suitable for use in restricted spaces.
  • Highlights

  • Touch valve with spring-loaded plunger.
  • Reaction is unaffected by the workpiece material.
  • Minimum size.
