Analytical Series Valves: A Video Overview
Learn more about Clippard’s analytical series electronic valves in this product overview video from Mike Kettering.
Video filmed at Clippard in Cincinnati, Ohio
Hi there, I’m Mike Kettering, product manager for electronic valves here at Clippard. Today, I’d like to talk about our A- or analytical series valve and how it can benefit your application. Any application where cleanliness, leak resistance, and cycle life is important is a good potential application for the analytical series valve. We’ve had a lot of success with life science, medical, and leak testing applications.
Some things that set the analytical series apart are, the cross-section of the o-rings—we’ve increased the cross section of the o-rings in this valve to increase the leak resistance. This valve also has a one-piece base—we have eliminated a few potential leak points on the base. All these valves are cleaned and assembled in a clean room which helps prevent any kind of contamination from getting into the valve.
All the elastomers are baked before assembly. This is important for any application where outgassing is a factor—we go ahead and outgas those seals on the front end so it’s not an issue in the application. Another thing with outgassing is there’s no anaerobic sealants used in the assembly of the valve.
These valves come standard in 12 and 24 VDC. There’s a few different electrical connections we can do, including wire leads and spade terminals. There’s a lot we can do custom for this valve including different voltages, higher pressure ranges, and different flow ranges.
