INTRODUCTION

Clippard has the broadest product line in the miniature and sub-miniature pneumatic product market with special application to the Bio-Medical industry. Founded by W. L. Clippard, Jr. in 1941, the company started out in manufacturing electronic test equipment. In the 1950's, Mr. Clippard recognised a need for miniature pneumatic devices in manufacturing and began to produce a small line of component products. The appeal of these products was such that, by the late 1960's, Clippard Instrument Laboratory was strictly a pneumatic manufacturer. The company has continued to have steady growth through the years with introductions of new and innovative products.
Well known are Clippard, for the original design & manufacture of the famous "Mouse Valve."

Note: That all products are now available in both Metric & Imperial thread forms.

CLIPPARD HAS ALSO PIONEERED THESE INNOVATIONS

MINIMATIC EV/ET ELECTRONIC MOUSE VALVES

Clippard Minimatic EV/ET Electronic valves and manifolds provide a complete system for efficient interface with electric and electronic circuits with special application in the medical industry. The standard valves convert low voltage, low current signals into high pressure (100 psig) pneumatic outputs. Optional low pressure/medium flow and low pressure/high flow models are available. The valves are precision-built 2- way or 3-way control valves, utilizing a unique valving principle with no sliding parts. Complete poppet travel is a mere .007” resulting in low power consumption and exceptionally long life. Special valves made of stainless steel with Viton or EPDM seals are also available. All valves are lubricated with oxygen compatible lubricants.
These valves are supplied in normally closed, normally open and universal styles.

Connectors

EV series- wire lead connectors
ET series- quick connect spade lugs
EC series- square pin connectors

Voltages

Supplied in 6, 12, or 24 volts as standard or with non-standard voltage options.

Seals

Standard Buna-N, Viton, EDPM, or silicone. However EPR,
Silicone and Diode seals can also be supplied as non-standard.


EVP PROPORTIONAL VALVE series (electronic)

 

 

This product combines the features of the existing EV series valve – long life, low power, and rugged design and fast response. The EVP Valve series contains a redesign of the heart of the mouse valve in the flexing element of the spider. The spider provides a controlled variable flow rate based upon a change in the electrical current provided to the valve. The EVP Series valve provides control of air or gas flow, and varies the output flow based on the current input to the solenoid which operates the spider. Consistent gain provides a high degree of control for many applications. Control and overall value are some of the main features of the EVP Proportional Valve. The valve may be controlled using DC current, open- or closed-loop control, and PWM (pulse width modulation) to cover a broad range of applications. The EVP series provides a very linear gain rate throughout its flow & pressure variations. Note the variation of +/-10% in hysteresis curve on graph, providing a stable and predictable flow profile.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

The EVP series provides a very linear gain rate throughout its flow & pressure variations.

Note the variation of +/-10% in hysteresis curve on graph, providing a stable and predictable flow profile.

Clippard EVP series of mouse valves has overcome the 3 challenges of performance in this design:



Series EVB-2 2013, EVB-3 Booster Valve

Designed to operate using the mouse valve as its pilot valve providing approximately 10 times the flow of the standard mouse valve. Available in an unlimited variety of directional, flow, pressure and special control valve encased in a body designed to mount on a subplate and link with a simple piping system.

 

E-SERIES VALVES

The E-Series are fully ported and can be solenoid or air piloted. Provide flexibility for use in many applications.
For example from a multiple of 4 way valves manifold mounted to control cylinders to a single remote mounted 4-way to pilot a large pneumatic/air piloted hydraulic device.

Leonard Clippard started Clippard Instrument Laboratory as an electronics manufacturer in the 1940's. Since that time, the company has made great strides in developing reliable products for automation. The Mouse valve sets the standard for the industry in reliability and life. That product was later expanded to include the ES (stubby) valve and the EI Intrinsically Safe valve. In addition, Clippard offers the EE3 10 millimetre valve as well as the E3 and E4 Eagle series valves. And now the company introduces the EVP proportional EV class valve.

CONTROL VALVES | 2, 3 & 4 way | Check & Flow | Shuttle & Needle | Actuators.

 

| 2, 3 & 4 WAY CONTROL VALVES

The company that pioneered the #10-32 thread as a port, maintains an attitude of quality as evidenced by their 100% testing of every product they assemble. Available in poppet or spool design, 2,3, or 4 way functions, metric/imperial for pressure up to 300 psig. Available with solenoid, air pilot, manual or mechanical actuators. Mountable – inline, panel and manifold.

 

| FILL & BLEED Toggle Valves |

This new “fill and bleed” toggle valve has two poppet valves connected to a single outlet. The operation is similar to a three-way, three position centre-blocked valve. The FBV-3 offers an extreme amount of flexibility in adjusting flow controls, when pressurizing or “fill” and de-pressurizing or “bleed”, simply by changing positions of the toggle. Two built in needle valves provide the speed control needed for extend and retract applications.
Non-adjustable models are also available. FTV-3 valve, compact and easy to install valves are available with several toggle position options offering unlimited application possibilities.

 




| CHECK & FLOW VALVES |

There are a variety of check valves which limit flow to one direction only. Made from bright-dipped brass and provide for inline mounting.
There are many models of adjustable flow control valves featuring a combination of needle and check valve which controls flow in one direction whilst allowing free flow in the other. These are ideal for cylinders providing a slow extend stroke and a fast retract stroke.

Clippard JFC-4 & JFC-5 Flow Control Valves

Clippard Instrument Laboratory, Inc. introduces the addition of two new products to their JFC Series Flow Control Valves. These combination needle and check valve flow controls are typically used to control air flow from air cylinders, thereby controlling the speed at which the piston strokes, either while extending or retracting, depending on their location in the circuit. J-Series Flow Control Valves allow free flow from the inlet to the outlet past the needle and check valve. In reverse flow, from the outlet to the inlet, the check valve is sealed and the flow must
now pass through the metered passage controlled by the tapered adjustment needle.

| SHUTTLE & NEEDLE VALVES |

 

Clippard offer various shuttle and needle valves that allow flow from one inlet whilst blocking the other inlet.
Exhaust occurs at the port where pressure was last applied. Can be mounted directly to valves & cylinders or inline using hose barbs on certain models. Adjustable control needle valves restrict the flow in both directions through various configurations to provide coarse or fine flow.

| BACK TO TOP |


MODULAR VALVE SERIES

One of the major elements of Clippard’s award winning design concept is the manifold body of the Modular Valve Series.
It encircles a central valve cavity with air passages that can be used at any point along the axis of the valve. These passages terminate at the base of the body in a circular octoport pattern.
The body mates with a
manifold subplate which mounts the complete module and provides #10-32 tapped holes for standard hose fittings.
A single molded
Octoport gasket, held in place by the two mounting screws, insuring a positive seal.
Because of the easy availability of an air connection wherever it is required, the manifold body permits valve elements to be designed for maximum performance without the restrictive limitations of rigid port configurations.
It also allows
multiple porting, using two or more ports as an inlet, outlet, supply, etc. This reduces the amount of external piping needed to complete the circuit. Furthermore the manifold body enables the internal interconnection of ports. This is especially valuable in a number of modules that contain more than one valve.
The separate elements are interconnected in the same module to provide
complete sub-circuits such as three input “OR”, three input “AND”, or a two input “NOR”. These functions further reduce external piping.
The system operating range is 0-150 psig and recommended filtration is 40 micron
