GVB/GVB12 Series Snap-Acting Relays

GVB/GVB12 Series Snap-Acting Relays
Product Description

Designed for pneumatic systems, Conoflow Series GVB Snap-Acting Relays change ports to switch or lock in secondary air source when the main supply pressure fails below a predetermined set point. In the event of supply or pilot pressure failure, the positive action relay with one common and two inlet or outlet ports will automatically:

  • Switch from main to auxiliary supply pressure
  • Lock an actuator in its last position
  • Extend or retract an actuator stem
  • Divert flow or pressure from one device to another
The Series GVB Snap-Acting Relays have an integral pilot which eliminates the extra piping and connections required with other lock-up valves. Compact and lightweight, the relays are easily piped and mounted.
