Here is a first look at our new Quick Exhaust Piston Housing for the Cyclone Loader. The QEPH is designed to rapidly vent the blast of air that is used to advance the loader. By venting the gas quickly, the loader responds instantly. This equates to faster loading with lower pressure.
The standard A5 piston housing has no venting ports (very bad). X7 Piston housing has forward exhaust ports only (better). Meaning that it only exhausts the air that is in front of the piston....not behind it. Its the air behind the piston that is doing all the work and really needs to be vented in order for faster loading.
Our QEPH is a forward and reverse exhaust tube. It exhausts the air in front the piston during the piston stroke and behind the piston at the end of the piston stroke. Venting the air in front of the piston in the early part of the stroke means that less pressure is needed to advance the loader and venting the air behind the piston allows the loader to return faster.
We were never impressed with the exhausting capacity of putting a normal QEV on the cyclone, and after seeing the X7 piston housing we decided to take it to the next level. We've combined those venting ideas into one part.
The materials we use are better than that of the stock piston housings, the internal finish is much smoother and is teflon coated, they perform much better (increasing speed and efficiency), and they look way cooler.
This part is designed to do what the normal QEV (Quick Exhaust Valve) attempts to do. With the QEPH there are no gaskets to keep clean, and its exhaust is exponentially faster.
All the QEPHs have polished internals and are teflon coated. This makes for the smoothest action.
