Clippard News

Man Your Stations!


In R/C (radio controlled) combat, hobbyists from around the world build, fight and sink 1/144 scale model warships. Ships are armed with CO-powered cannons that blast steel ball bearings at their enemies. Water pumps are used to control battle damage. As long as you can pump any incoming water out of your vessel, you should stay afloat.

Oil Pump


The Welker Oil Injection Pump was introduced in late 1995, and was designed to provide an automated lubrication system for turbine meter bearings. For decades, the lubrication of bearings was a labor intensive procedure. Now with the OIP system, bearings are automatically lubricated evenly and consistently, maintenance time is reduced, bearing life is increased, and accuracy is more easily maintained.

Clippard EC Series valves provide a pneumatic actuation between 15 and 100 psig.

Clippard Pool Maintenance 101


When Bill Clippard, Sr. leaves for the office, the last thing he wants to worry about is whether his swimming pool is clean and operating correctly! That’s why he uses Clippard valves and fittings to manage the pool’s filtering system, as well as various other water features in his back yard. Plus, the use of pneumatics eliminates the potential for electric shock!

Water + Timing = Phenomenal Graphical Waterfalls


Computer-generated graphics are created and defined by water droplets and the absence of droplets through a system designed by a Wisconsin-based firm. Droplets fall so precisely with the help of Clippard’s EV valves and cylinders that they create vivid graphic images and text. Logos, promotional copy, multiple dancing ribbons, flipping squares, fish—all completely created through water and lighting. Displays range from 11-50’ high and use a closed water system so that water is not wasted.

Simplified Pneumatic Symbols


The components needed to manufacture and construct pneumatic logic control circuits are readily available, reliable and have been proven in countless applications. The symbols needed to design a pneumatic circuit are few, yet until now no practical rapid symbology for the control designer existed.

Clippard Pneumatic Cylinders Serve Propane Tanks to Summer Grillers


The next time you need to get your propane tank filled, you may be given one by Clippard valves and cylinders! In today’s world of streamlining and saving time, an innovative firm has designed a self-serve system which allows buyers to get a propane tank 24/7. Simply swipe your credit card and the holding cage will open automatically dispensing a tank. These systems are located at stores, gas stations and other shopping establishments for your convenience!

Pad Printing


Pad printing systems are self-inking presses designed to print on objects with irregular shapes. Clippard’s pneumatic circuitry assists in the process with Modular Valves, Subplates and Push Buttons. Set up takes less than 60 seconds for the next run of any size product. Capable of running up to four colors.

Bug Off!


If you build a home in areas with tropical climates such as Florida, Louisiana and Texas, chances are you’ll be shopping for a pest defense system along with carpeting, paint and cabinetry! Clippard’s client offers a patented system designed with a network of small, perforated plastic tubing installed in designated walls which links to service ports on the exterior of the home. Through these ports, technicians periodically inject pest control materials into the tubes, distributing them within the wall voids, thereby targeting the pests right where they live.

Portable Gas Analyzers


Many manufacturers of portable and fixed gas analyzers utilize Clippard Minimatic valves and fittings. The reliable EV series valves are ideal for flow control as well as the purging of the system between samples.

Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Equipment


Kinetic Muscles, Inc. has developed an exercise therapy device to be used mostly by stroke patients to retrain the brain to regain motion in the limbs. The Hand Mentor encourages a patient to extend their wrist and fingers as much as possible on their own. When maximum self-extension is achieved, the Mentor will engage a pneumatic actuator which then assists with the movement to full extension. Cycle rates, length of motion and force of operation can be programmed into the unit. Kinetic Muscles utilizes Clippard ES electronic valves on a special manifold in the Mentor.
