The items in question are described as pneumatic control valves, product numbers 159448, 173449, 151007, 173505 and 161361. The valves are electrically controlled and designed to control flow within pneumatic systems. You indicate that principal use for subject valves will be in industrial automation systems. Descriptive literature and samples were submitted.

The applicable subheading for the pneumatic control valves will be 8481.20.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other valves for pneumatic transmissions. The rate of duty will be 2 percent ad valorem.
