Clippard J-Series sleeve valves offer large flow capability with a relatively short stroke in 2-Way and 3-Way valves, and no cross-over between inlet and exhaust on the 3-Way models. Unlike ball valves, sleeve valves require no space for a handle. They also provide flexibility in pipe connections and are available with either male or female threads or combinations of both.
The JSLV-2 valves feature a smooth opening stroke during which inlet air is directed to the outlet. During the closing stroke, in the opposite direction of travel, the outlet is closed from the inlet and in the JSLV-3 version, the outlet is then exhausted to atmosphere without the inlet ever being connected to exhaust.
