Air Saver Application Example: Part Cleaning Machinery

An Air Saver (sometimes referred to as a pulsating air valve or pulsing air valve) is a pneumatic valve that converts constant flow of air to pulsing air. In open-ended pneumatic applications, compressed air consumption can be reduced by up to 50%, while performing the same amount of work.

Pulsing Air Valve Compressed Air Savings

Both ASV15000 and ASV13000 pneumatic pulsing air valves are great choices for cleaning parts on a production line. Choose the one that matches up with your air flow requirement.

In the application below (cleaning machinery of automotive parts), the ASV13000 Air Saver unit both improved efficiency of cleaning the parts and reduced compressed air consumption by about 50%.
