Flow control valves (flow control regulator, speed controller) are capable of adjusting the flow rate of compressed air. The speed controller bodies can be rotated after installation to allow for variations in piping direction. Meter-out, meter-in and in-line flow control valves are available.
Meter-out flow control valve (flow control regulator, speed controller) controls the flow rate of air entering from the thread side, whereas air entering from the tube side comes out from the thread side at the same (not controlled) flow rate.
Meter-in flow control valve (flow control regulator, speed controller) controls the flow rate of air entering from the tube side, whereas air entering from the thread side comes out from the tube side at the same (not controlled) flow rate.
In-line flow control valve (flow control regulator, speed controller) controls can be easily added to existing circuitry and are light weight and compact. Since it is a tube-to-tube connection, in-line flow controls may be installed as a meter in or meter out device.
