Clippard Heavy-Duty Limit Valves Instructions

Instructions for Clippard LVA-2, LVA-3, LVAO-2 & LVAO-3

Internal Valve Mechanisms
The internal valve mechanism is one of a group of Clippard cartridge valves. These are poppet type valves machined from brass and stainless steel. The seals are Buna-N and all brass parts are chemically-treated to resist corrosion. Used in the limit valve, the maximum flow (2-way or 3-way) is 19 cfm at 100 psig and 10 cfm at 50 psig. Pressure range is 0 to 300 psig.
