Apparatus and processes in which valves partly come into direct contact with fluids introduced into or taken from patients are a part of medical technology. e.g. the handling of medical gases in respirators or the handling of liquids in dialysis. This field of application requires the use of inert materials, a low dead volume, low power consumption as well as easy-to-flush internal valve or system cavities.
Medical product laws require compliance with applicable legal requirements.
Many applications require a hermetic separation between the fluid (liquid or gas) and the internal parts (control system) of the solenoid valve in order to :

  • exclude particulate contamination caused by friction of moving parts,
  • minimise heat transfer from the electromagnetic part, and
  • ensure a high level of reliability of the solenoid valve when handling extremely aggressive fluids
