Protects sensitive fluids
19 July 2015
Providing rapid and precise dispensing of aggressive and sensitive fluids Lee Products has added the LFY2 Chemically Inert Solenoid Valve to its field-proven Y-Valve range.
The 3-way inert, zero-dead volume solenoid valve features an innovative ‘Y’ internal flow design that reduces the internal volume to a total of just 12 micro-litres. This design also provides a clean, flushable flow path which reduces, or eliminates carry over between fluids and helps to protect fragile samples.
In addition the valve’s balanced actuation virtually eliminates pumping effects, which is common to diaphragm valves.
The electrical interface of the valve provides secondary connector retention and is compatible with standard AMP connectors. Available in 12 and 24 VDC operating voltages and with either 062 MINISTAC or standard ¼ - 28 flat bottom fluid connections the LFY2 requires a small footprint of just 77mm L x 26mm W.
The valve has a response time of less than 30 ms and is designed for long and reliable operation of over 5 million cycles.
