In-line Filters for Miniature Flow Control Component Protection

Check ValvesIn-line FiltersPrecision Orifices February 17, 2016

Many systems use in-line filters in combination with check valves or precision orifices for enhanced performance

Introduction
Miniature flow-control components such as in-line filters are usually installed in air, gas, vacuum and fluid flow systems to perform very specific functions related to flow control. It is frequently useful to pair critical components in complimentary combinations. Although the function of in-line filters is often  ...

Precision Orifices (Flow Restrictors) for Flow Control

Precision Orifices January 8, 2016

Miniature precision orifices are widely used in flow control applications

Why use orifices or flow restrictors?
Precision orifices (flow restrictors) are highly adaptable, low cost and widely used components for controlling liquid, gas and air flow rates. They are vital for air and gas flow control. Because of this, it is important to have a general understanding of orifice design, function and selection. This post is an overview of miniature precision orifice features and materials plus some specific reasons for ...
