Boston Gear's EK series of control valves are primarily used to control the operating direction of pneumatic cylinders and air motors. The use of a two- or three-position, four-way valve allows a double-acting cylinder to extend or retract upon the actuation of the valve operators. A three-way valve is primarily used to activate a single-acting cylinder. The EK Series of valves is available with a wide range of solenoid, mechanical, and air powered operators.
