Press Release Summary:
With maximum rated pressure of 25 psi, Pneuma-SealÂ® elastomeric bladders come in standard lengths of 6, 9, and 12 in. and measure 1Â¼ in. wide. Thickness ranges from 5/8 in. (not inflated) to 1 in. (fully inflated), providing 3/8 in. range of motion. Plug-and-play EPDM bladders come unsupported or pre-mounted in protective aluminum housings with 6 in. long flexible hose air connection terminated by 1/8-27 NPT pneumatic fitting.
Original Press Release:
Inflatable Bladders in Standard Sizes Simplify Design, Speed Delivery In Host Of OEM, MRO Uses
Pawling Engineered Products has standardized its Pneuma-Seal® line of inflatable elastomeric bladders to simplify the design and fabrication of devices using pneumatic actuators and seals. Marketed under the trade name, Pneuma-Cel, it is believed to be the first line of standard bladders readily available on the web, the "plug and play" EPDM bladders find wide use in mechanical clamping, actuation, sealing, stabilizing and cushioning applications.
Standard lengths of 6, 9 and 12 inches are available on two-day delivery. Width is 1 ¼ inches and uninflated thickness is 5/8 inch. Fully inflated, thickness is 1 inch, providing a 3/8-in. range of motion. All sizes come either unsupported or pre-mounted in protective aluminum housings and with 6-inch long flexible hose air connection terminated by a 1/8-27 NPT pneumatic fitting.
The new Pneuma-Cel standard bladders are based on more than more than ten thousand Pawling custom bladders that have performed successfully in more than a thousand applications since 1955. Many are tandem installations to build up load capacity.
Rated service temperature range is -25 to 250F. Chemical resistance is the same as for EPDM. The new bladders have been life-tested to 500,000 cycles at room temperature.
Unsupported inflatable bladders provide soft, conformal clamping and sealing for applications ranging from workholding to material handling and cargo stabilization. Supported bladders provide "hard" mechanical actuation force, yet compensate for variations in alignment or clearance. Maximum rated pressure is 25psi. They can be held in position with fitted housings or any EPDM-compatible adhesive.
