The Clippard captivated push button, for use with a large variety of stem operated valves, is available from Pneumatics Direct.
Captivated push buttons are sold as kits, adaptable to either 1/8” or 3/16” diameter stems. Each kit includes a coloured acetyl push button, brass housing nut, 1/16” brass spacer, and lock washer for assembly. The standard furnished mounting nut has a bright chromate finish. Black chrome or nickel plated finishes are also available.
Captivated push button can be used on individual stem operated valves or in panel mount application by omitting the 1/16” brass spacer. The captivated push buttons are available in a variety of colours, allowing the user to colour code, or easily differentiate between valves when designing control systems.
The design of the captivated push buttons allows maximum actuation of the valve, with no over travel or side load to the valve stem. This assures superior performance and long life.
Captivated push buttons are commonly used as limit valves, in conjunction with pneumatic cylinders, slides and any variety of mechanical actuators. The rugged design, coupled with precise actuation of stem operated valves make it ideal for application, where repetitive cycling of the valve is necessary.
Designed to work with Clippard MAV, MJV and FV series, the captivated push buttons integrate easily into systems, providing optimal quality and efficiency in pneumatic control.
