New Oxygen Clean Series Electronic Valves (O-E Series) from Clippard are two- or three-way pneumatic control valves designed for use in oxygen environments or other applications sensitive to contamination. Based on Clippard's EV valves, which feature a patented valving system, the new O-E Series is manufactured, cleaned and tested for use in oxygen-enriched environments. And for the sake of low particulate generation in the field, it features only one moving part — a flexing armature that opens and closes the valve without the particulate potentially generated by sliding parts. Clippard rates the flexing armature for up to billion cycles.
