Block and Bleed Valve
The NV62L Block & Bleed Valve is most commonly used in combination with a declutchable gear override. This Namur accessory mounts in-line with other components such as a Namur solenoid valve, directly to the actuator inlet and exhaust ports. During normal automated operation, the NV62L is disengaged and allows air to pass through. When the manual plunger is engaged, both actuator ports are blocked from incoming air and simultaneously allowed to exhaust (or “bleed”) to atmosphere. In this mode, the user can now manually move the valve without fighting the air supply. Max-Air highly recommends the NV62L Block & Bleed Valve for any automated assembly using a declutch gear override.
