The flow capacity of valves, connectors and other components in pneumatic systems is often expressed in Cv. (See, “What is the flow coefficient Cv?“) However, other methods and standards are also available to express flow capacity. Here are some important alternatives. Sonic conductance In place of Cv, some manufacturers choose to publish the sonic conductance, […]
In the pneumatic industry, Cv is one standard for expressing the flow capacity of devices used in pneumatic systems. However, there are multiple other standards that also express flow capacity, including effective orifice size and normal liters per minute, as well as measurements of actual flow rates at specific pressure differentials. These methods are not […]
When Clippard invented miniature regulators in 1962, the MAR Series became very popular as a simple, robust, and cost-effective regulator in a small package with exceptionally long life. As regulator applications continue to increase, Clippard is meeting the demand with the newest addition to the reputable regulator line. The new DR-2 Series provides greater accuracy and repeatability (±0.15 […]
Clippard is excited to announce the release of a new series of direct actuating valves that offer an extremely fast response time for accurate dosing of minute volumes with the same long life as the original Clippard EV line of valves—but now in a 7mm cartridge package. Due to very low moving weights, they are extremely quiet and emit very […]
These new direct actuating valves offer extremely fast response time for accurate dosing of minute volumes with the same long life you expect from the original Clippard EV line of electronic valves, now in a 7mm cartridge package. Due to very low moving weights, they are extremely quiet and emit very low vibration. Because of the small size and […]
Slowing and stopping a towed vehicle can be tricky. To simplify this, SMI Brake, Newburg, Ind., turned to Clippard Instrument Laboratory, Cincinnati, and Isaacs Fluid Power, Indianapolis, to provide solutions for braking a towed vehicle. Pneumatics was chosen over solenoids because of its compact size, efficiency, consistency and long term reliability. SMI offers three solutions […]
By Paul J. Heney and Mary Gannon Cincinnati-based Clippard Instrument Lab created its EV line of valves in 1973. The company’s workhouse pneumatic valves have seen a lot over their lifetime—video games like Pong have evolved into lifelike realty games and mobile phones the size of loaves of bread are now compact, thin devices that […]
Cincinnati—Clippard Instrument Laboratory announced the new 9/16-in. bore stainless steel cylinder. Available in stud or universal mount, double, single or reverse acting, rotating or non-rotating rod, with standard stroke lengths up to 4-in. This new cylinder comes complete with all of the standard features found on Clippard’s other stainless steel cylinder sizes, including: • Polished […]
Clippard Instrument Laboratory Inc. has just released its all-new 356-page catalog. This full-line catalog includes features, specifications, technical drawings, color photographs, and application highlights throughout.
Editorial Director Paul J. Heney takes users on a quick tour of Clippard Instrument Lab’s expanded 3D catalog on the TraceParts website. He shows engineers how they can easily view and manipulate 3D drawings of different pneumatic parts from the Clippard catalog.
