Flow control valves:
A few variations available here, e.g., you might want to meter the flow into an actuator vs. out of an actuator.
[FONT=Verdana]Last year’s was a: NAS2201F-N01-07S[/FONT]
(This translates to: 1/4" elbow, meter-out, one-touch fitting, NPT, 1/8"port, 1/4" tubing, with seal)
Straight screw fitting:
The screw fittings required differ based on the hole in your cylinder, for example, the Clippard storage tank has a 1/4" NPT port, while a typical actuator might use 1/8", and the Bimba rotary actuator requires a tiny connector.
It looks like your source only stocks the 24V coils (we need 12v) on the SMC solenoids, but you can order them from the catalog: http://www.alliedelec.com/Catalog/pf.aspx?FN=1516.pdf
Last year’s double solenoid was a: SY3240-6H-S
(This translates to SY3000 series, 2-position single action, base mounting, 12VDC, L-type plug connector, surge suppressor)
The single-action solenoid was a: SY3140-6H-S
Each SMC solenoid also rquires a base: [FONT=Arial]SY3000-27-1T

Clippard air storage tanks:
Look for 1/4" tubing fittings.
Solenoids need to have 12v activating coils.
