New Mechanical Air Suspension Valve from Barksdale

| February 22, 2018


Barksdale, a leading manufacturer of industrial control instrumentation, has released the Atlas Valve. The new Atlas, Series 52334, is a versatile mechanical air suspension valve designed for multiple demanding air suspension applications.

Atlas Valve is built with a new patent-pending design that provides both a standard ride height and an auxiliary setting. The standard ride height setting is the primary setting and includes an integral dump feature that provides the ability to quickly exhaust to air bags. The auxiliary setting can be configured to one of four different modes: Raise, Lower, Blocking, or Variable Flow to activate chassis raise, aerodynamic, utility/outrigger, or bob tail suspension modes.

Atlas Valve is compatible with standard chassis requirements. With standard ¼” NPT ports for Inlet, Exhaust and Bag Ports, M12 and PTC port options for equipment requiring metric fittings are also available. Auxiliary and Dump ports are also standard at ¼” NPT and a PTC port is available as an option.

Barksdale’s Atlas Valve is built to last and withstand harsh environments with its anodized aluminum body, while case-hardened stainless steel make up components responsible for leak-proof-sealing and air-flow.

By preserving mounting pattern and port orientation from current Barksdale leveling valves, integration of Atlas is simple and efficient.  An additional pilot line and dash switch is required to activate the auxiliary port.  Warning signal(s) and/or vehicle speed interlocks can be programmed through vehicle ECU.

Atlas is a lightweight mechanical valve which requires no complex wiring or calibration for operation. It can be customized with a variety of handle lengths, handle offsets, fittings, and mounting brackets.  Atlas is built in Los Angeles California in compliance with RoHS standard using quality processes maintained through ISO/TS 16949 certification.
