A valve is a component that stops and runs the flow of fluid (water, air, water vapor, gas and oil, etc.) as a faucet or controls the quantity of flow.  Valves that open and shut with the power of solenoid are called solenoid valves.


An air valve or pneumatic valve (directional control air valve) switches the flowing direction (flow path) of supplied air pressure to cylinder or other actuators in the pneumatic circuit.
Directional control air valves are briefly classified into switching valve, non-return air valve, check air valve and shuttle air valve.
