Needle ValveFluid Power Machine Building Clippard
Clippard GNV series offers flow rates up to 60 scfm at 100 psig.
Clippard introduced its GNV series of needle valves, available with 1/8-, 1/4- and 3/8-inch port sizes with flow rates up to 60 scfm at 100 psig. Needle valves are used to control the rate of flow in a pneumatic system by controlling flow in both directions. Material enters the input port, travels through an adjustable orifice and out the output port. Mounting options for the series include direct and in-line, as well as cartridge styles. Adjustment is achieved by either a recessed slot or knurled knob. The GNV series also offers a compact design with rotating input that allows for 360 degree positioning.
