Product category: Aids for the forming of hollow glass

52 Series

The MAC 52 Series is a 3-way balanced spool valve pilot operated by a small direct operated 4-way solenoid valve - a one-off in valve manufacturing.  The 4-way pilot means a low minimum operating pressure - no pistons - and minimal resistance to shifting.  The balanced design in the pilot means shifting forces are consistently high and response times are repeatable regardless of inlet pressure fluctuations.  For information regarding certifications (such as UL, CSA, RoHS and CE) please visit the Get Support pages on our website.

MAC's patented Pulse Valve

The MAC patented Pulse Valve series was developed to replace current diaphragm style technology and create a more robust and reliable valve solution in industrial applications. MAC Pulse Valves are ideal to replace existing diaphragm technology in applications such as reverse jet bag houses and dust collectors, pneumatic conveying and bulk material handling.

The MAC patented Pulse Valve utilizes the MAC 46 Lifting series balanced pilot technology to ensure fast, repeatable pulses. It also utilizes bonded spool technology in the main valve for superior reliability beyond existing diaphragm technology. A checked accumulator and a main spool with memory spring are used to ensure a shift back to the home position, for times when air supply may not be adequate. A line of adapter plates has also been released to replace existing diaphragm pulse valves with a direct drop-in, without disturbing existing plumbing.

It is currently available in (2) sizes; the PV03, for ¾” and 1” applications and the PV06, for 1 ½” applications.

31 Series

The MAC 31 series is a direct solenoid operated 3-way - 6mm - poppet valve. A direct operated 3-way of this size with such high flow is unique to MAC due to patented design innovations. It features an oval armature in the solenoid, a balanced poppet and powerful return spring. These features translate into high shifting forces, fast consistent response times, high flow in a small package and long life.

Bullet Valve®

The Bullet Valve® (BV) represents yet another evolution in air valve technology from MAC. The Bullet Valve utilizes "lifting" solenoid technology. The MAC "lifting" configuration is unique, however, in that the valve maintains a balanced design - a signature feature of a MAC valve - shifting forces are consistently high and response times are repeatable regardless of inlet pressure fluctuations. 2-way and 3-way configurations of the BV cartridge (9mm, 10mm, 14mm, and 21mm) are available.

Liquid Microdosing Valve

The Liquid Bullet Valve® is the latest design innovation from MAC. With fast response times, reliable shifting forces and repeatable results – due to its patented balanced design - the MAC LBV is ideal for applications that demand reliable, low-leak performance. The LBV performs with both gas and liquid*, and is engineered to perform at the highest level throughout its life. The MAC LBV employs D-Flex™ technology to provide an exceptionally tight seal; preventing leakage and saving you product and money.

D-Flex™ technology also allows the LBV to last longer and perform stronger in the toughest applications. With fewer wear points than traditional valve technology the LBV is designed to last.
