PBT Ball Transfer
Virtually any air control device may operate Omtec Pop Up Ball Transfers. In the majority of applications simple non electric foot and hand valves may be used. Sensing device operated electric solenoids valves may also be used.
Omtec Pop Up Ball Transfers like virtually all pneumatically operated components, require Filtered, Regulated and Lubricated compressed air to operate. Omtec has FRL kits, Non-detent foot valve kits and detent toggle hand valve kits available. Other controls supplied on request. The regulator should be set at 50 PSI (3.447 bar). Omtec pop up ball transfer units use very low air volume, it is usually not a consideration. Each up and down cycle of one ball uses .00038 cubic feet (.0000108 cubic meter).
Carbide bits for boring and recessing holes in plastic & wood composite surfaces.

If recessed flanges are desired, Omtec also has available the correct size carbide tipped rabbeting bits. 1/4 inch (6.35mm) trim routers.
Minimum metal surface thickness: Steel 0.092 inches (2.34mm), Aluminum 0.125 inches (3.18mm). Depending on individual applications, ribbed reinforcement of all surfaces is an important consideration.
