Gems Sensors & Controls, a market leader in custom made fluid sensing and control solutions, announces their new K Series 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. Liquid Chromatography, Gas Analyzers and Water Quality Testers are just a few of such applications.
Offered in multiple body sizes, port configurations, wetted body and diaphragm materials; the K Series of inert isolation solenoid valves, available from Control Components , is a truly modular platform of direct acting round bodied solenoid valves allowing for superb power, flow, durability and life optimization. This line of inert valves is comprised of three groups: KS Series are 2-way valves with a Maximum Opening Pressure Differential ( MOPD ) of 20 PSIG ( 137 kPa ); KM/KL Series are available in 2-way and 3-Way Directional configurations, with MOPDs up to 30 PSIG ( 206 kPa ); and KV/KW Series offer 2-Way and 3-Way Directional configurations, with MOPDs as high as 20 PSIG ( 206 kPa ).
“Progressive molding 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.”
