since when actuation
is a verb ?? ohh and check the definition of the term transitive verb
proving your point with a dictionary is ok as long as know how to use them and which one is suitable
Anyway I already provided the correct definition in the post above
Check what Fluid Power Education Foundation says about this (on p.17)http://www.clippard.com/downloads/gener ... matics.pdf
In case you don't get it yet - you can't have an air actuated directional valve which isn't air piloted (and you can't have an air piloted valve which isn't air actuated). Thus the two terms can be used interchangeably
What the dude was referring to is something different... some ppl refer to indirect acting solenoid valves as solenoid actuated air piloted valves... but that's more of a convention than a fact. If you consider the two valves as one inseparable unit then it is ok. But it is just a simplification
- in fact you've got two direct acting valves there: one solenoid actuated and the other one air actuated.
So it is more of a naming convention than a fact
I don't want to give too much away, Jagerbond would shoot me. Here is what I think will work. I'll be testing this out sometime this month
SO does it use manometric metering ? If the ID of your chamebr is so large then you might as well put a piston there that will cut out the flow as soon as X force is exerted on it.
