    Default Flow control valves in Australia for 1 shot oiler? And other fittings?

    Hi all anyone know a supplier in Australia for small oil control valves and other stuff like manifolds that would suit a 1 shot oiler project? Looking to make one for my cnc benchtop machine (conversion).

    Many control valves are meant for compressed air, not oil. Some of them have neoprene rubber parts, and neoprene can absorb oils and swell up. So some caution is needed. Nitrile and Viton rubbers are good.

    Also, a lot of compressed air fittings are not especially good at sealing at the couplings. Any air leakage doesn't matter, but slight oil leaks can make a horrible mess. I resorted to teflon tape.

    I have been using AirTac solenoid valves (via eBay) on my MQL system and so far they seem to be OK.

    Cheers

    Did you end up finding a supplier for these parts?...mine leeks all over the place as well..and I cant bleed the system because of it...I have resorted to oiling myself with a brush till I can sort the issue with the leaking joints.
