VFOE: Cost-Effective, Easy-to-Adjust One-Way Flow-Control Valve from Festo

By Festo Canada   

Mississauga, ON, May 13, 2022 – Festo’s new manually adjustable VFOE meets all the criteria users are seeking in a one-way flow control valve for either supply or exhaust air in standard industrial applications. With its compact, polymer body design, the VFOE is both smaller and up to 50% lighter than comparable metal-bodied flow control valves. That polymer difference and customized manufacturing allow Festo to offer VFOE as a low-cost option which doesn’t sacrifice Festo’s renowned quality. The company also has added the VFOE to its core range of products, assuring it is always in stock at Festo service centers around the world for fast delivery. Low cost, high quality and ready availability makes the VFOE the best value option on the market.

One-way flow control valves enable adjustable control of the speed at which a pneumatic actuator will extend or retract for any application.

VFOE’s compact size makes it ideal for installing into tight spaces. Its 360º swivel joint simplifies alignment with tubing during installation. Thanks to the integrated push-to-lock operating, three steps is all it takes for quick, reliable and secure adjustments. The colour-coded rotary knob makes it quick and easy to set the flow control valve for incoming air or exhausting air.

The VFOE pairs perfectly with Festo’s PUN-H polyurethane tubing. In combination with a Festo pneumatic drive, this duo gives users everything they need to adapt the cylinder’s speed to specific applications requirements. And VFOE is offered in many combinations of thread sizes and tubing diameters.
