Media separated solenoid valve

THE media separated solenoid valve VYKA from Festo is suitable for use as a dosing valve for contactless dispensing or as a control valve for continuous flow applications.

“With a width of just 7mm, this compact powerhouse doses small quantities very precisely,” the company said in a statement, adding that this allows the precise dispensing of fluids and the control of liquid flows in manifold duct plates for continuous flow applications.

“The excellent performance of the liquid valve makes it a suitable choice not only for laboratory applications, but also in the perfume and flavour industries as well as for packaging contact lenses.”

Thanks to a separating diaphragm made of high-performance polymers FPM and FFPM, the solenoid valve VYKA is also suitable for aggressive media. The low internal volume makes the valve easy to clean.

“The combination with FDA listed materials makes the VYKA ideal for highly sensitive applications. The current control ensures the switching behaviour is highly reproducible. The holding current reduction of the plug-in electronics prevents sensitive media from heating up.”
