Glass Industry

Pneutech offers a range of pneumatic systems tailor made to suit the demanding applications of the glass manufacturing industry. Improve production, gain larger yields, extend the longevity of your equipment, increase accuracy and explore cooling applications for high temperatures.

MAC Valves in particular have had great success in the glass field and have supported the industry for a number of years.

Their expertise includes:

Valve Blocks: All MAC solenoid valves are fully protected against contamination thanks to the MACSOLENOID® and wiping action technology. MAC Valves manufacture their own coils and offer a lifetime warranty.

Cartridge Valves: MAC Cartridge Valves are of the typical MAC design - balanced poppet, robust construction, high flow, low minimum operating pressure and with a strong, reliable spring as well as fully tested prior to shipment. As a result life expectancy is proven as up to 80 million cycles and they will interchange with all major valve block manufacturers.

Blowing Valves: The unique MAC Valves high temperature 4-way pilot technology and non sticking design allows fast and reliable high flow blowing applications for your final blow, settle blow, counter blow and cooling applications. They can be either electrically or air remote controlled. Inline or sub base mountings allow easy retrofit on all machines.

High Temperature Sub-base Valves: The new generation of MAC 4-way pilot solenoid and remote air valves are fully designed for high temperature applications and heavy duty environments. Dedicated mountings with MAC or ISO bases, Circuitbars® and transition plates allow all combinations for easy retrofit on maintenance and new machine designs. Sandwich flow controls and sandwich pressure controls with mechanical or electronic controls are available for pressing and blowing applications.

Conveyor Valves: The MAC Valves 4-way balanced pilot technology and non-sticking design provide fast and reliable operation on sweeper applications where speed, accuracy and reliability are critical.
