How Overvoltage Affects Solenoid Valves


Every solenoid valve has a nominal actuation voltage, which is usually based on common power supply voltages such as 12 VDC, 24 VDC, 110 VAC, or 220 VAC. The nominal voltage is typically printed somewhere on the valve body or coil and is the voltage required to actuate (shift) the valve. Applying less than the nominal voltage will result in undervoltage and may result in a slower "on" response time or the valve not actuating at all.

When Cleanliness Matters, You Can Count on Clippard

It's no surprise that the cleaner your valve is, the less it will leak. However, cleanliness is also important in other ways, such as for medical applications where fluid flowing through the valves may be entering a person's body or for applications in the food and beverage industry. In these cases, the valves must not only be cleaned of any particulate matter, but also of any harmful substances used in the normal machining or assembly process.

Hit & Hold Circuit Recommendations for Clippard Valves


Primary Advantages
of a Hit and Hold Circuit:

• Lower power

• Less heat generation
  by the coil

• Increased cycle life

Isolation Valves - An Overview of Different Types


To control flow without contaminating media such as blood, pharmaceuticals or reagents, a wide variety of medical devices and analytical equipment utilize media isolation valves. This article explores the characteristics of three main types of valves commonly used to isolate media.
