Clippard Instrument Laboratory, Inc. is the leading manufacturer of miniature pneumatic
valves, electronic valves, brass, stainless, and corrosion resistant cylinders, modular components, and
fittings. The Minimatic line includes over 3,400 standard products and the company’s growth continues today
maintaining its position as the industry’s most complete supplier of quality, miniature pneumatic components.
Minimatic Cylinders range from 5/32" to 1 1/8" in bore size, and are available in spring
return and double acting models, with a full line of associated devices for mounting and use.
Directional Control Valves
Every air system is unique, and Clippard has the air valve you need. Clippard control
valves are available in poppet or spool design; 2-, 3-, or 4-way functions, in sizes from #3-56 and #10-32
(M5) through 1/8” NPT (G1/8) ports; and for pressures to 300 psig/21 bar. They are available with
solenoid, air pilot, manual and mechanical actuators. Mounting styles include in-line, panel mount,
manifold mount or clearance holes for mounting screws.
Clippard’s product range includes:
Mouse Valve Series – The industry standard for leak-free operation and fast response
Proportional Valve Series – Direct-operated performance from Clipard’s EVP and SCPV Series valves
10 & 15 mm Valve Series – 2- or 3-way operation with detachable coil and connector for orientation options.
Maximatic & Valve Series – General Purpose, 2-, 3- and 4-way configurations for maximum value and maximum performance.
Custom Electronic Valves – Clippard has years of engineering and technical experience and is a leader in manufacturing special products for a broad spectrum of industries.
Circuit Boards & I/O Modules
Clippard clear acrylic pneumatic circuit boards are designed to provide a compact and
highly efficient pneumatic control system, with the use of Clippard modular components and other
Clippard products. Clippard’s pneumatic I/O devices are ideal for Intrinsically Safe environments;
simple custom machinery requiring only one program; and PLC type applications that have all pneumatic
components for inputs and outputs. This system provides a safe, simple, and cost-efficient answer for
pneumatic automation control solutions.
Clippard precision fittings will save you time, space, and money when designing versatile,
productive, trouble free, pneumatic circuits. Our endless variety of fittings insure that you find just
the right “fit” when plumbing pneumatic circuits or assemblies. These fittings are small in size but
large in performance, allowing for streamlining of pneumatic assemblies and eliminating the need for
larger, more expensive, cumbersome fittings
Hose & Tubing
Clippard offers a variety of miniature hose and tubing from copper and nylon tubing to
flexible urethane, and vinyl.
Air Prep Equipment
Filters: Filters capture solid particulate and remove water by “spinning”
the air centrifugally. Water and larger particles are thrown against the side of the bowl where they
condense and/or fall to the lower part of the bowl. Smaller particles are captured as the air flows
through the filter element.
Regulators: Controlling pressure is an important requirement in all systems. Maximatic
Regulators are adjustable from 7 to 125 psig. For applications requiring better resolution, 7 to 30 or 7
to 60 psig models with spring are available. The #10-32 size is a piston-style due to its small size,
while the 1/8” to 1” are a diaphragm design.
Lubricators: Pneumatic actuators and valves perform better and last longer when properly
lubricated. The bowl serves as a reservoir for the oil and supplies oil through the pick-up tube when
pressurized. The amount of oil dispersed is controlled by an adjustable needle valve.
