Takasago Electric, Inc. is a specialized manufacturer of chemically inert miniature valves and pumps. Takasago was founded more than 50 years ago in Japan and has, in addition to its Japanese factory, a production facility in China. Takasago “Clean Valves” and pumps are used in state-of-the-art fluid mechanics in analyzers in, for example, medical diagnostics, environmental measurements and quality control in the food, dairy and pharmaceutical industries.
In addition to the aforementioned solenoid valves and pumps, Takasago also supplies pinch valves, pneumatic valves, miniature diaphragm pumps, peristaltic pumps, piezoelectric pumps and plunger pumps. Also manifolds and fluidic chips.
Takasago’s “Clean Valves” are produced in a clean room. This minimizes contamination, which is one of the major causes of failure of solenoid valves. Takasago has developed a number of innovative, patented technologies, such as the “Soft Seal” membranes for liquids with particles and the “Ventiduct” for isolating the coil when pumping corrosive liquids or high temperature liquids.
