THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUR TECHNOLOGY

Nexmatix’ technology uses proven spool and body valve construction to recycle compressed air. The technology works by briefly connecting the two downstream cylinder ports during each stroke.

As the valve cycles, the pressurized outbound port connects to the opposing (unpressurized) outlet port, recycling the compressed air from one outbound port to the other. This effectively pre-charges the de-pressurized port before it is connected to supply, saving on average 20%-40% of the compressed air.

The two sides in fluid communication are allowed to dwell or equilibrate before venting the remaining spent air from the first port. This connection occurs on the order of 10s of milliseconds and is transparent to the user. For a three position valve, the center position behavior is maintained during power down. The valve doesn’t require any hardware, electrical or PLC modifications, making it a truly plug-and-play replacement for users with ISO manifolds.
