[APD] Re: Clippard valves and such
Dave G. asked what model Clippard valve folks were using. I'd guess
most of us have the 4 series. Mine are MNV-4K.
I would never claim that my Clippard valves are great metering
valves. They are servicable and the price is right, which is all I
was looking for. Cost was very important to me since I had two
manifolds to populate (10 valves total). It would've cost me a
pantload and a half to go with a more sensitive valve.
They do take a bit of fiddling to get things just right, but once set
they do fine. If one does need adjusting, it's because I purposely
shut it off or bumped it while doing something. I've not had any
trouble with thermal drift (or whatever it's called), or tank dumps,
or anything else. I also like the fact that they shut off
completely. Rumor has it that some of the super swanky valves won't,
and you'll damage or destroy them if you try.
Everyone's situation is different, so I'm not claiming Clippard is
the answer for everyone. But I've gotten my money's worth and then
some over the last couple years that I've been using them.
Just my two cents for the pot.
