Selector valves

Beswick Engineering designs and manufactures miniature fluid power devices. The patented Beswick selector valve can be used as a quiet replacement for solenoid valves. In the standard configuration, a single input can be switched between 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 output ports. The selector valve can be ordered either with detents for manual operation with a knob or, alternatively, without detents for automatic operation with a servo or stepper motor. The non-selected port(s) are vented to atmosphere. In an optional configuration with built-in check valves, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 input ports can be switched to a single output port. A common use for this version is to sample pressure readings at multiple locations and feed these pressure sources to a common pressure gauge. This eliminates the need for multiple pressure gauges. Outside diameter of the valve head is a little over 1in. The valve length varies depending on the choice of tube fittings. Typical length is about 1.6in. Applications include medical and dental equipment, laboratory equipment, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, aerospace equipment, packaging machinery, and industrial robots.
