Product Details

MS-DL Series Soft Start Valves

The Festo MS-DL series of pneumatically actuated soft start valves allow pressure to be gradually built up when turned on, preventing sudden and erratic movements at the actuator. The valve uses a direct external pilot for switching and switching can be adjusted for the required time delay.

Features and Benefits

  • A pressure gauge or sensor can be installed for system monitoring

  • Module connector for connection to MS4 or MS6 combination air preparation units is available

  • The switching pressure for this series is approximately 50% of set pressure

What is a soft start valve?

Soft start valves throttle gas flow to prevent turbulence in machine cylinders, to avoid damage to pneumatic engines.
