Ensure vehicle safety, performance and comfort
Efficiently control and monitor brakes, engines, exhaust and fuel systems as well as chassis and cab air suspensions for buses, trains and trucks, plus heavy duty and specialty vehicles.
Heavy Duty Trucks
All cab and chassis air suspension valves from Barksdale feature proportional response for minimal air consumption to improve vehicle efficiency, in addition to our legendary Shear-Seal® durability. An integral dump feature in our 52341 series quickly exhausts the air bags for ease of drop and hook of trailers. Our Atlas series air suspension valves offer multiple ride-height capability, blocking (shut-off) and variable air flow (high/low). Every product is designed to handle the dust, moisture, vibration, shock and other extreme conditions common to heavy duty trucks.
Ensure reliable and precise control of ride height on commercial or vocational trailers with air suspension valves from Barksdale. Our 52321 series offers high value, robust shear seal design that will provide reliable performance for years to come. Atlas air suspension valves are available in four modes for raised and lowered suspension, blocking (shut-off) and variable air flow (high/low). Atlas valves are a popular option for heavy haul trailers with lift axles. Atlas valve raises trailer to higher ride height when lift axles are raised, creating additional ground clearance, minimizing tire, wheel and suspension damage. As with our air suspension valves for trucks, our trailer valves are designed to minimize air consumption without relying on inaccurate and failure-prone time delay elements.
Enhance safety in all conditions with hydraulic and pneumatic switches that deliver dependable brake pressure and compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel tank monitoring products from Barksdale. In addition, Barksdale enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to improve the comfort of buses and motor coaches with air suspension valves and that provide consistent ride height and repeatable control. Every product is designed and tested to perform consistently and reliably despite being exposed to severe environmental conditions as well as cycling, vibration and shock.
Efficiently and safely control locomotives with Barksdale pressure switches, transducers and level sensors. Barksdale instrumentation controls for compressed air including compressors, brakes, engines, hydraulics and air conditioning. All sensors are responsible for critical application within the entire train architecture and developed with expert knowledge from the industry. All products are designed and manufactured to withstand the demands of rail applications and deliver stable performance over the long haul.
Enhance reliability, safety and comfort with level, pressure and temperature instrumentation and controls engineered by Barksdale. Our devices are engineered to tolerate frequent cycling and fluctuations and excessive vibration experienced in specialty vehicles used for: emergency response (ambulances, firefighting, law enforcement, mobile command centers); healthcare; libraries; schools; veterinary care; and businesses (mobile showrooms, technical support and repair services).
