Pneumatic Control Valves

EK Series Control Valve

Boston Gear's EK series of control valves are primarily used to control the operating direction of pneumatic cylinders and air motors. The use of a two- or three-position, four-way valve allows a double-acting cylinder to extend or retract upon the actuation of the valve operators. A three-way valve is primarily used to activate a single-acting cylinder. The EK Series of valves is available with a wide range of solenoid, mechanical, and air powered operators.
