Uk show debut for new compact media separated valve

A highly innovative new media separated (MS) valve, offering the key benefits of compact size, low power consumption and an operating pressure range unrivalled in its class, will make its UK show debut on the Norgren stand number C19 at the Lab Innovations Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, from 7-8 November 2012.

The Chipsol MS 2/2 valve from FAS, a subsidiary of Norgren - an international market leader in pneumatic motion and fluid control technologies - has been developed in response to increased demand for compact MS products for both life science analysis and environmental monitoring applications. It draws on Norgren’s extensive experience in the design and development of high-performance MS products which deliver Engineering Advantage by preventing system contamination through very specific material usage and optimum rinseability.

Applications range from acting as an isolation valve in portable devices such as gas chromatographs, to dispensing and dosing functions where precision and repeatability are paramount - for example reagent and eluent dispensing - and use as a shut-off valve in systems with limited space or heat management capacity.

Its key attributes include minimal power consumption – just 0.5W; compact 8mm footprint; and its ability to operate at a broad range of pressures from vacuum to 2.1 bar. Inlet and outlet volumes are 9 µl while the products offer exceptional rinseability with virtually no unswept volume.

Weighing just 4.6g and able to be cartridge or sub-base mounted, Chipsol MS products have a response time which can be as low as 5 milliseconds depending on the application. Boasting high flow rates, exceptional reliability and minimal heat generation, each product version is validated for 30 million cycles.

Chipsol MS valves are manufactured in high-specification PEEK, with specifiers able to choose between FFPM elastomers for the most demanding applications and the USP Class VI EPDM for bio-compatibility requirements or less aggressive media.

Visitors to the Norgren stand will also have the chance to see other innovative products and solutions from the Norgren range and to discuss their applications requirements with Norgren technical experts.

Ian Houston, Head of Life Sciences for Norgren UK, commented: “The Lab Innovations Show is a great opportunity for us to showcase the latest addition to the Chipsol range which delivers a unique range of performance attributes in a variety of applications - and to promote to key specifiers and decision-makers the overall Norgren offering combining high-performance products, technical excellence and exceptional local service.”
