Product update | October 2021

Formula Air always strives for excellence in product quality and operational efficiency in order to provide added value to our customers. That is why we want to present small, but significant changes we’ve introduced to our product range.

Sliding Dampers Assembly & Delivery Changes

n order to be more flexible, improve lead time and maintain the current price level as much as possible for our pneumatic sliding dampers, we have changed the way we pack this product. Until October 2021, pneumatic sliding dampers would be shipped fully assembled including the sliding damper itself, the cylinder(s), the solenoid valve, the coil and the connector. 

As of October 2021, we will deliver our pneumatic sliding dampers (AADA) with the coil and connector not mounted on the solenoid valve, but packed together with your ordered sliding dampers. 

The coil and connector will be put in the cardboard box of the sliding damper (apart from diameters > 250mm, these will be packed in bubble wrap). If the order contains multiple pneumatic sliding dampers with the same voltage, we will deliver the coil and connectors in separate boxes. 

If you order a reed sensor, please see the mounting manual for instructions on how to mount in on.

Brand New Leaf Valve SL Model

We are glad to announce the launch of our new leaf valve SL (square lid). The new SL leaf valve model provides better overall quality of the product and contains an improved lid seal to prevent air leakage during the vacuum process.

Leaf valve SL is made for installations without microswitch and is only compatible with the latest version of the flexible hose connector.

If you are after a microswitch option or want to use previous hose connectors, old components of the leaf valve RL (round lid) are available for purchase until the end of the year. The new microswitch will be added to the leaf valve range in January 2022.

See product documentation to review these latest improvements to our products.
