Air Suspension Valves, Aftermarket kits & Accessories

In 1992 the industry expectation for commercial vehicle air suspension height control valves was limited. Available HCV designs were based
on seals that wore rapidly, requiring frequent replacement. As the seals failed, height control performance deteriorated and air consumption
increased. Valve replacement and downtime costs were rising with trucking demand.

Barksdale Controls identified the need for a solution and developed a series of height control valves based on its patented Shear-Seal® technology. Today Barksdale supplies Original Equipment valves to some of the most prestigious commercial vehicle manufacturers in the world. Our success continues to be driven by our ability to combine high value customized solutions with best in class customer support.

Barksdale invented the Shear-Seal® principle, and since 1949 has used the technology in our valves with great success in demanding applications such as steel and paper mills, oil exploration and processing, and defense. Utilization of Shear- Seal® technology in air suspension height control valve applications yielded breakthrough improvements in durability and performance. The Shear-Seal® principle is based on the sliding of two precisely machined metal sealing surfaces across each other, creating a zero-leak* seal. Contaminants cannot score the seals because flow is through the Shear-Seal® rather than across the sealing surface. Precision engineering and manufacturing combine for unmatched performance and reliability.

Bringing zero-leakage, long life Shear-Seal® technology to commercial vehicle ride control applications changed the industry and made Barksdale Controls the leader in suspension control technology.

55521 Series - Cab Air Suspension Valve

The 55521 Air Suspension Valve utilizes Barksdale’s patented Shear-Seal® technology to accurately control suspension height in commercial and recreational vehicle applications. Shear-Seal® has become the industry leader through superior performance and long life, even under the most demanding conditions.

Barksdale height control valves feature proportional response and are available in both low fl ow and high flow configurations. These features combine to minimize air consumption without the use of inaccurate and failure prone time delay elements found in competing products.
Available push-to-connect fittings and single or dual bag ports allow for easy and fast installation. The Barksdale valve’s compact design and Barksdale’s ability to customize the product make it a perfect fit on any suspension.

52341 Series - Air Suspension Valve with Integral Dump Feature

The 52341 Air Suspension Valve utilizes Barksdale’s patented Shear-Seal® technology to accurately control suspension height in commercial and recreational vehicle applications. Shear-Seal® has become the industry leader through superior performance and long life, even under the most demanding conditions.

The integral dump feature in the Barksdale 52341 valve brings the ability to quickly exhaust the air bags into one compact package eliminating components and installation labor.

54341 Series - Air Suspension Valve with Reverse Integral Dump Feature

The 54341 Series relies on negative air pressure to actuate the dump feature. This feature allows the seamless integration of the reverse dump valve into the trailer parking brake system. When parking brakes are set, the negative pressure that allows the brakes to lock will also allow the dump feature to be actuated. The negative air pressure allows the dump valve to return to its “normally open” state and exhaust the trailer air suspension.

52331 - Series Second Ride High Leveling Valve

The 52331 Air Suspension Leveling Valve (SRHLV) combines Barksdale’s patented Shear Seal technology with a second ride height feature. This new product offers Shear Seal’s industry leading durability with the ability to select two controlled ride settings at the flip of switch.

The SRHLV is engineered to customer specifications to either raise or lower vehicle air suspensions a specific distance at the end of the valve arm or number of degrees of shaft angle. The second ride height is activated by simply applying 75 PSI (5 bar) to the pilot port. Releasing pressure at the pilot port returns height control to the standard (default) setting. Whether in second ride height or standard (default) ride height vehicle suspension control our proportional response design conserves on-board compressed air while maintaining precise control.

55581 Series - Linkless Cabin Air Suspension Leveling Valve

The Barksdale 55581 Linkless Cab Valve (LCV) is the latest generation of cabin air suspension leveling solutions from North America’s leading heavy vehicle air suspension valve supplier. The LCV combines valve and linkage into a compact, lightweight unit. High temperature, engineered polymer construction stands up to the extreme operating environments generated by emission controls. Compact linear design minimizes the valve footprint, allowing greater cabin suspension design freedom. Nitrile seals provide years of reliable service.

Press on mounting points and push to connect DOT/SAE fittings minimize installation time. The LCV is permanently sealed, eliminating maintenance and unauthorized adjustment.

The LCV is available in multiple port configurations with 1/4” or 6mm push to connect fittings and standard or micro-adjust bushings.

 

52462 Series - Pressure Relief valve

The 52462 Pressure Protection Valve (PPV) is designed to protect primary air systems when utilized with auxiliary air components. With a male threaded inlet port this PPV can be threaded directly into the air tank without the need for additional fittings. Single or dual outlet ports and factory calibration of opening or closing pressure allow our valve to be configured for your exact specifications. Its compact and lightweight design will fit into almost any air system application.
