 New Atlas Valve

Saves Time | Reduces Injury | Prevents Trailer Landing Gear Damage

Barksdale is pleased to announce the release of the new Atlas Valve, Series 52334, a versatile height control valve designed for various air suspension applications. Atlas offers truck and trailer OEMs a simple, cost-effective, and reliable second ride-height solution with many other features that integrates effortlessly into existing platforms and delivers end-users significant cost-savings.

Atlas valve is equipped with primary and auxiliary ride settings. While the primary setting is configured for standard ride height and dump function, the second setting, actuated by a 70 psi pilot, can be configured to one of four different modes: Raise suspension, Lower suspension, Blocking (air retention), and Variable Air Flow. If the dump function is not required, the corresponding chamber can be replaced to add another mode to the valve.

Whether it is a fleet truck on the highway or a lowboy trailer off-road, the four modes of Atlas can provide a simple and elegant solution to these industry demands. With second ride-height or blocking mode, Atlas excels in applications where additional ground clearance, outrigger, or efficient drop and hook are needed.

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.
