Directional Control Valves


Valves that get better with use.

For fifty years, Barksdale’s patented Shear-Seal design has been the valve of choice for applications requiring tight shut-off, low pressure drop, high flow rates, and long life. The Shear-Seal principle allows unmatched design versatility. It’s at the heart of our simple panel mount shut-off air valves and our custom engineered automated 10-port injection valves for gas turbines.

The Shear-Seal design passes dirt and debris though the sealing rings instead of across the sealing surface. The basic design feature not only reduces wear, it actually creates a lapping action between the sealing surfaces that results in a valve that “wears in” instead of “out.” In fact, continual use can actually “heal” small scratches in the sealing surface.
