Asco has introduced the 045 Series line of pinch valves, offering low power consumption and less heat transfer for protection of liquid media for analytical and medical instruments

The new pinch valves are designed with a small form factor that is half the height of competitive products, according to Asco.

This makes them well-suited for compact instruments that are used in laboratories and healthcare facilities with limited space.

The valves have good vacuum and pressure ratings and accommodate a wide range of tubing sizes for high versatility.

“The 045 Series valves feature low-wattage solenoid coils with minimal heat generation to ensure the protection of valuable reagents and biosamples,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive VP of sales and marketing for Americas at Asco.

“The 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,” Kemple added.

The pinch valves, manufactured in Class 8 clean rooms to eliminate contamination, are available in ¾”, 1”, 1¼”, and 1½” sizes and in custom designs for specialised applications.

The 045 Series valves are available as part of Asco’s Engineered Solutions Program, which cuts the lead times for customised valve and manifold assemblies by up to 50% for the analytical and medical instrument markets according to company data.

Asco, an Emerson company, offers solutions of fluid automation products for a broad range of process and manufacturing industry applications.

The company’s fluid control and pneumatic product lines include solenoid valves, angle body piston valves, valve manifolds, cylinders, filters, regulators, lubricators, and a complete range of accessories.
