What Products Does Air Logic Offer?
Air Logic is primarily focused on pneumatic and vacuum products. They also provide customization jobs for clients who have specific requirements. Listed below are some of the main divisions of the products they offer:
Modular Precision Regulators and Manifold Systems
Air Logic’s regulators feature top-notch repeatability, miniature size, and sensitive 20 turn adjustment. Balancing of the valve seat gives an output that virtually is unaffected by changes in supply pressure. Only a 1 percent change can be expected of the output psi for every additional input psi.
The Modular Manifold System is compatible with various pneumatic accessories. The unique modular dovetail design allows the regulator or the manifold to be used individually or assembled into a modular combination of Pneumatic Components.
Pressure Switches and Vacuum Switches
Air Logic’s switches are single pole, double throw for common, normally closed, and normally open terminals. Gold contact and solid state switches are available for low current applications. The switches can withstand pressures or vacuum of up to 100 PSI or 29.9" Hg, respectively. The normal capacity of the switches ranges from 0.5 to 100 PSI or 1 to 28" Hg.
Air Logic manufactures various types of plastic fittings. Their catalog includes Miniature Unions, Bulkhead Connectors, Barbed Fittings, Reducing Connectors, Elbows, 10-32 Plugs, Crosses, 10-32 Nipples, Swivel Elbows, Straight Swivels, and Tees (Patent # 4,946,204).
The Swivel Fittings are available in three models, the Swivel Elbow, the Straight Swivel, and the Swivel Tee. The swivels are available with barbs for 1/16", 3/32" or 1/8" I.D. flexible tubing. The swivels are available with 10-32 UNF threads, 1/8-27 NPT or 1/4-18 NPT. The unique design (Patent #4,946,204) allows the fitting to swivel 360°. The snap type fitting is sealed with a Buna-N O-Ring. The swivel fittings are precision molded of nylon.
Universal Bulkhead Swivel Fittings
The modular bulkhead base has a unique design that allows the swivel fitting to rotate 360°, without regards to the barbed base. A Double Swivel Bulkhead Base provides the ability to utilize a swivel fitting on both ends of the bulkhead fitting. Three barb configurations are available, the Straight Swivel, the Swivel Elbow, and the Swivel Tee. They offer Barbs with 1/16", 3/32", 1/8" or .170" I.D. tubing.
Miniature Quick Disconnects
Air Logic manufactures miniature plastic Quick Disconnects. Three barb configurations are available, mainly a barbed elbow, straight barb, and a barbed tee. The barbed fitting’s unique design allows it to swivel up to 360 degrees around the base. The fitting is sealed with a Buna-N, Ethylene Propylene, or a Viton O-ring.
The Quick Disconnects has 10-32 UNF male threads; the unique design of the threads allows the fitting to seal without a gasket. They offer Quick Disconnects with 1/16", 1/8" or .170" I.D. tubing. The barb prevents leaking by not having a molded parting line.
The interface devices that Air Logic offers include both moving and fluidic diaphragm control components. Each of them have features that make them perfect for particular applications. The Interface Devices include Diaphragm Amplifiers, Test Point Indicators, Sensor Venturis, Diaphragm Comparators, Spring Sensors and a Vacuum Generator.
