New isolation valves with inert body and diaphragm materials
Gems Sensors & Controls has announced its new K Series of inert isolation solenoid valves. Constructed from chemically inert materials such as: PTFE, ETFE, EPDM, FKM, FFKM, PEEK, PPS and PSU, the K Series of isolation valves is an excellent choice for any application requiring various levels of chemical resistance and/or sample purity. Typical applications include Liquid Chromatography, Gas Analyzers and Water Quality Testers.
Offered in multiple body sizes, port configurations, and a choice of wetted body and diaphragm materials, the K Series is a truly modular platform of direct acting round bodied solenoid valves, offering superb power, flow, durability and life optimisation. This range of inert valves is comprised of three groups: the KS Series features 2-way valves with a Maximum Operating Differential Pressure (MOPD) of 20 PSIG; KM/KL Series are available in 2-way and 3-Way Directional configurations, with MOPDs up to 30 PSIG; and the KV/KW Series offer 2-Way and 3-Way Directional configurations, with MOPDs as high as 20 PSIG.
“Progressive moulding and manufacturing techniques allow Gems to deliver precise, durable orifices and diaphragms in materials that our customers demand,” said Jessica Light, Medical Market Manager, at Gems Sensors & Controls. “Gems is very excited about how well this critical element of inert fluid control enhances our ability to deliver complete fluidic systems to our medical and life sciences customers.”
Gems specialises in providing complete fluid sensing and control solutions to meet exacting customer application requirements—from custom coil windings to highly specialised materials.
