Solenoid Pivot Valve Manages Complex Flow Operations
An inert, space-saving, manifold-mountable solenoid operated pivot valve is available from Bio-Chem Valve Inc. The valve features a low internal volume design in a 2-way or 3-way configuration that minimizes carryover during precision mixing or dispensing of high purity or aggressive fluids.The electrically operated pivot valve is designed for use in medical and laboratory instrumentation. Minimal internal volume and particulate-friendly materials, along with a manual override option, distinguish the problem-solving valve. For complete control during the instrument design stage, the equipment designer can manually open or close the valve using the optional manual override feature.A new generation of Bio-Chem Valve’s precision control and dispensing technology has emerged from the customization of a standard valve to meet the OEM’s requirement for design flexibility. The pivot valve features a single footprint that permits it to be fitted with either a 2-way or 3-way flow path. The pivot valve is available as a standard product or customized for specific applications. A stand-alone design with ¼ -28 ports is also available.Several wetted material choices are available to provide compatibility with a broad range of chemicals and environmental conditions. Available options include: EPDM, Viton, or perfluoroelastomers for the diaphragm and PPS, PEEK, or Tefzel for the body material.
