Monnier has become known as the air preparation manufacturer where “custom solutions become standard” because of its extensive expertise in developing application specific products for customers. The following provides just a few examples of the custom product solutions Monnier has developed.
Requirements: A small regulator to control the air and oil flow of an oil-fired furnace using waste oil. Solution: Two identical miniature low-pressure regulators on small manifolds controlling the air and oil separately.
Requirements: Gentle pressure is required for use on air splints. The splint operates at an adjusted pressure between 1-3 PSIG. In addition, noise must be at a minimum. Solution: Monnier engineered a special relief valve with special porting which enables direct mounting to a second relief valve. A stacked diaphragm keeps noise to a minimum.
High Pressure Regulator
Requirements: Needed on a portable CO2 bottle used for a unit that lifts medical patients. Solution: The machined regulator handles supply pressure to 100 PSIG and is equipped with an oversized adjustment knob for ease of adjustment.
Requirements: A regulator activated by a slide cam which operates with high cycle times to dispense ice cream. Solution: The flow of ice cream can be precisely controlled due to the accuracy and response of this custom regulator.
Requirements: To reduce and simplify complex piping. Solution: This filter housing has one 3/8" inlet and three 1/8" outlets. This greatly reduced the complex piping previously used.
ENP And Anodizing
Requirements: Car washes, food processing, and oil field control panel equipment are just a few of the situations that require ENP or anodized units. Solution: Monnier's use of high grade aluminum bar stock for machined components allows the application of many special finishes.
Rugged And Environmentally Tough
Requirements: The rail car industry needed a filter housing for use on bottom-discharge coal cars that could withstand tough environmental conditions. Solution: Monnier's filter housings are made from solid bar stock and can stand up to the vibration and demanding conditions of being mounted on a coal car.
Requirements: A special media valve which was air pilot actuated with an integrated "OR" logic gate. Solution: A valve with a shuttle pilot control and a durable high flow main stage was designed for this unique application. Monnier's manufacturing expertise extends to machining special control valves for full integration of multiple circuit components
