“Everyone wants a smarter product these days and so taking our technology and wrapping around that intelligence feedback from pressure sensors — from flow sensors, and from other types of devices, an electronic pressure controller is certainly the next phase, the next revolution of our product line,” Clippard said.
“By having control over the manufacture of the valve, we have a great deal of discretion in the design of the entire pressure control unit and that adds value to our customers,” Clippard said. “It not only gives us the ability to select specific to applications, but it improves the overall turnaround time for getting product into the hands of our customers.”
Typical applications would be in the leak test industry where they might be testing low flow, and low-pressure applications in the life science industry for needs such as DNA sequencing or DNA testing for diabetes. These applications require low volume, low flow, and low pressure and require very stable and high-resolution control.
