The alternative to electric motors
Parker Hannifin says its P1V-A and P1V-B air motors provide an efficient and cost-effective alternative to conventional AC and DC devices. Based on a simple but extremely reliable design, Parker's latest air motors are compact, lightweight and capable of providing an exceptionally long operating life.
The motors have been developed for use in particularly demanding applications, including those where it is impractical or unsafe to use electric motors, and can play an important role in helping to improve the performance, productivity and profitability of a wide range of industrial and process machinery.
The P1V-A and P1V-B air motors use an innovative vane rotor design, where a high efficiency rotor, enclosed in a steel cylinder, is driven by a controlled flow of compressed air. The air paths are constructed so that the direction of force is always at ninety degrees to the vanes as the rotor turns, producing optimum levels of power and torque. The vanes are spring mounted into the rotor, ensuring that they form a consistent, low friction seal against the cylinder wall, giving superior start-up, slow running and high speed characteristics. The speed of each motor can easily be adjusted using standard pneumatic flow control valves or pressure regulators located in air inlets. They operate in pneumatic systems up to 7 bar.
