  • Clippard’s newest DVP series proportional solenoid valves are precision-built 2-way control valves, utilizing a unique, patented valving principle. This powerful series was designed as the next generation of the well-known and trusted original EV line of Clippard “Mouse” valves. With a life of over a billion cycles, a solid, compact design, and extremely high flow rates, these valves are suitable for many applications across numerous industries.

    The DVP series valve provides air or gas flow control, and varies the output flow based on the current input to the solenoid. The consistent gain of this valve provides a high degree of control.

    Controllability and overall value are the main features of the DVP series. The valve may be controlled using DC current, open or closed-loop control, and even PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) to cover a large range of applications

    •  Industry standard for leak-free operation

    •  Over 1,000,000,000 cycles

    •  Extremely low hysteresis

    •  Fast response time

    •  Large flows in small, sleek design

    •  Low heat rise/low power

    •  Robust stainless steel “Spider” flat armature spring

  • The Clippard NIV Series Media Isolation Valve is a solenoid-operated device that uses a flexible diaphragm to isolate the actuation mechanism from the fluid path. Media isolation valves are commonly used for a wide variety of applications, including those that require precise, repeatable dispensing of media for analytical instrumentation.

    All wetted areas of the valve are PTFE, making this series ideal for use with corrosive media. A unique feature of the NIV Series is the one-piece valve stem that functions as a sealing membrane while also supporting and centralizing the poppet in the seating area. This multi-functional poppet/diaphragm/stem results in a simplified design with fewer parts (only two for the 2-Way and three for the 3-Way), longer life and zero dead volume. Choose from four orifice sizes available as 2-Way Normally-Closed, 2-Way Normally-Open, or 3-Way Selector/Diverter.

    Industries and applications that commonly use these types of valves to isolate gas or liquid include: drug dispensing, laboratory equipment, analytical, chemical analysis, sampling, life science/biotech, genetic research, gas chromatography, spectrometry, DNA synthesizing, blood analyzing, printing, diagnostic equipment, fermentation, water treatment and more.

    • Low power consumption

    • Compact, lightweight design

    • Bidirectional

    • Zero dead volume

    • All wetted areas PTFE

    • Ideal for use with corrosive media

    • High cycle life

    • Fast response time

    • CE, RoHS Compliant

    • Proudly made in the U.S.A.

    • ISO 9001:2015

  • The Clippard NPV Series Miniature Pinch Valve is a solenoid-operated device that is designed to open and close tubes for controlling flow of liquids and gases. Other valve types have internal passages that may cause small amounts of fluid to remain in the valve. Pinch valves have no areas or dead volume where fluid can become trapped. Only the inside of the tubing contacts the fluid. Energizing the solenoid retracts or attracts the plunger, which opens or closes the tube. De-energizing the solenoid will allow the plunger to return to its original state.

    Common industries that use pinch valves for the benefits of isolating fluid from a mechanical valve include: drug dispensing, laboratory equipment, waste water, medical devices, chemical, food and beverage equipment, ceramic/glass/plastic, and bulk and solids handling.

    •    Four sizes with multiple pressure range options to 30 psig

    •    Small, compact design

    •    Hygienic and easy to clean (replace tubes)

    •    Low power consumption

    •    High cycle life

    •    Can handle whole blood and particulate matter

    •    Unobstructed flow path

    •    Each valve comes with 12” of medical/laboratory or food grade silicone tubing, pre-installed

    •    Variety of tubing sizes available

    •    Tubing is easily replaceable

  • Clippard's ST and SV series direct-actuating valves offer an extremely fast response time for accurate dosing of minute volumes with the same long life you expect from the original Clippard EV line of valves, now in a 7mm and 8mm cartridge package.

    Due to very low moving weights, they are extremely quiet and emit very low vibration. Subminiature size and low energy consumption make them ideal for transportable and mobile systems, among others. This series can be fully customized according to the user’s unique requirements. 

    •  Small, compact design

    •  Expected life of over 1 billion cycles

    •  Extremely small dead volume

    •  Very quiet and emits very low vibration

    •  Fast response time

    •  Low energy consumption

  • 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 psi) while maintaining the same flow and performance characteristics as the MAR regulators in a small, sleek package.

    Regulators are offered in either relieving or non-relieving versions. The relieving design maintains a constant pressure output even when downstream conditions change, while non-relieving regulators do not automatically compensate for changes in downstream flow or pressure. There is no vent to atmosphere, as in a relieving type regulator, and the output pressure can increase due to a downstream event. 

    •  Design for applications where zero air consumption is required (non-bleed)

    •  Special diaphragm seal provides excellent accuracy and repeatability

    •  Excellent corrosion resistance

    •  Relieving and non-relieving designs

    •  Manifold mount option

    •  Features non-rising internal adjustment

    •  ISO 9001:2015
