Valve sets benchmark for size and performance

12 August 2008

The flipper solenoid valve type 6650 (FSV 6650) is slim, fast, precise, robust, cost saving and easy to clean. With this media-separated valve Bürkert provides a fast-switching valve for reproducible and precise dosing for chemically aggressive fluids, which has never been available this slim before. With its 4.5mm width, the new valve is a significant step towards miniaturisation while even outperforming 10 mm and 16 mm designs.

Due to its slimness the FSV 6650 allows equipment and instrument manufacturers to pack more valves into the same space for greater functionality, or helps reduce laboratory costs by shrinking the size of the equipment or instrument.

The new flipper valve’s optimised internal design leads to a low internal volume and enables effective flushing of materials through the device such as formerly known in rocker valves only. This in essence increases the utilisation of the media used, eliminates the waste of expensive reagents as well as cross contamination and raises process safety.

The FSV 6650 provides IP65 protection what qualifies it for even rough environments.
