|Pneumatic components provide the systems and controls for applying pneumatic energy in a wide range of applications for virtually every industry. Air preparation systems filter, lubricate and regulate the incoming air to insure dependable operation of pneumatic components. A multitude of lines and fittings are available for connecting air preparation components, valves, and actuators. Electrically actuated directional control valves provide the interface between the electrical control system and pneumatic actuators used to convert pneumatic energy to linear and rotary motion. Ramco also proudly represents pneumatic safety products from Ross controls for machine safeguarding systems.||Solutions For:

Lockout / Tagout
Energy isolation Lockout/tagout (LOTO) is another high-priority safety topic. Under standard LOTO, before a worker can enter a protected area of a machine, all energy must be dissipated and machine-status verified. The standards deﬁne “de-energized” as disconnecting all energy sources from the machine and ensuring no circuits contain residual stored energy. For ﬂuid power, this requires a manually operated energy-isolation valve that must:
• Have a secure and tamper-resistant method of lock attachment
• Be located outside the protected area in an easily accessible location
• Have a method for employees to verify energy dissipation prior to entering the protected area
• Not be used in normal production
• Have a full-size exhaust port (ANSI/PMMI B155.1-2006, CSA Z142-02)
• Be positive acting (only two possible positions)
• Be easily identiﬁable
• Can only be locked in the off position
And, of course, companies must have a written policy and train affected employees.
