ASCO‘s 045 Series line of pinch valves for analytical and medical instruments offer low power consumption and less heat transfer for maximum protection of liquid media.
“The 045 Series valves feature low-wattage solenoid coils with minimal heat generation to ensure the protection of valuable reagents and biosamples,” says Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing – Americas, ASCO. “This makes them the ideal choice for dialysis, hematology, and surgical fluid management applications.”
The new pinch valves are designed with a very small form factor that is half the height of competitive products. This makes them ideal for compact instruments that are used in laboratories and healthcare facilities with limited space. The valves have very good vacuum and pressure ratings, and accommodate a wide range of tubing sizes for excellent versatility.
“ASCO 045 Series valves are supported by the company’s Analytics and Medical Technology team, the industry’s only group of engineering and application specialists dedicated to serving the analytical and medical industries,” says Kemple.
The pinch valves are available in ¾-inch, 1-inch, 1 1/4-inch, and 1 1/2-inch sizes, and are manufactured in Class 8 clean rooms to eliminate contamination. They are available in custom designs for specialized applications.
ASCO 045 Series valves are available as part of the company’s Engineered Solutions Program, which cuts the lead times for customized valve and manifold assemblies by up to 50 percent for the analytical and medical instrument markets.
