The fluid processing industry has been grappling with the need for reliable solenoid pinch valves that deliver accurate fluid volume.
Leaks often occur with many valves as they fail to seal off completely.
Additionally, a common issue is that many valves cannot handle various tube diameters without a change in their physical size.
Several considerations come into play when creating a solenoid pinch valve for precise fluid dispensing: the type of fluid being used, the material and diameter of the tube, and the closing force of the valve.
Addressing these challenges, TLX Technologies has pioneered a solenoid pinch valve.
This valve boasts a strong closing force within a compact package.
Remarkably, it can cater to tube sizes up to 10 mm in diameter. For larger requirements, this valve can also be scaled up.
The key is the continuous duty solenoid which ensures the force needed to halt fluid movement entirely.
Moreover, the valve is equipped with a diode for protection against back EMF.
