Fittings Video

Food and beverage packaging customers and OEMs depend on fluid system connectors like fittings and tube products to keep pneumatic air flow control and fluid transfer systems running at peak efficiency. Watch "Tips on Fittings and Tubing for Food & Beverage Packaging OEM" to see how Parker FSC fittings can be an ideal solution for your application.

Selecting the right flow control

Flow Control Fittings & Regulators

A pneumatic flow control provides precise speed control of air flow entering or leaving a pneumatic actuator. Flow controls combine a needle valve and a check valve. The needle valve meters the flow in one direction, while the check valve allows free flow in the opposite direction, but prevents return flow. Watch the video to find out how to select the appropriate flow control for your application.
