Soft-start/dump valves are three-way, two-position solenoid valves that gradually increase air pressure downstream when energized (adjustable time). They maintain upstream pressure and can relieve downstream pressure when de-energized (optional dump function). NITRA soft-start valves can be used for shop/plant air supply or with air prep for individual machines.
