Silent, Low Cost (Disposable) Valve

 SMV Series valve

In addition to Takasago’s conventional 2-way or 3-way solenoid valves (or pinch valves or
pneumatically driven valves), Takasago has developed a 2-way valve that uses shape memory
alloy to make its actuations.

Key Features
– Light Weight (1.5g)
– No Operating Sound
– Low Power Consumption (0.3W or less)
– Compact Size (4.0 x 18.4 x 19.0 mm)
– Low Cost (Maybe considered as disposable valve)
– PPS or PEEK body options, and EPDM, FKM, or FFKM elastomer options
– 0.4mm or 0.8mm orifice size options

This valve maybe suitable for the following applications:
– Requiring disposable valves
– POC devices
– Portable PCR devices
– Requiring valves that don’t create magnetic fields
– Requiring low power (battery) operation

This valve uses a shape memory alloy for the actuator. Dramatic downsizing, lightening, low power consumption and silencing are all achieved with this valve in comparison to a solenoid-type valve. This valve operates slowly, which makes it suitable for applications sensitive to rapid fluid movement such as fluid supply to a micro reactor.
