Pneumatic flow control is the use of air as a control medium, or as the controlled medium, in which one medium controls the flow of another.

Pneumatic flow control taxonomy[edit]

There are two possible pneumatic flow controls: those that are controlled by pneumatics, and those that control pneumatics.

Pneumatically controlling valves[edit]

Pneumatically control valves are valves that control the flow of pressurised air. Another medium such as water (hydraulics) or electricity, for example, may also be used as an actuator.

In some cases, the valves are operated manually rather than automatically.
