Product Announcement from co-ax valves inc.
Pendell, PA (September 2007) – Co-ax valves' PowerTube™ technology is built into each of its MK series valves. The fast (25 milliseconds depending on size) bubble-tight positive shut off is ideal for applications where leaks simply cannot be tolerated, or where leak-testing is a prerequisite.
The co-ax MK 10 is available as a normally closed, or, normally open valve. And because the valve is engineered to accommodate pressure imbalances in either direction there are no check valves required. This feature further reduces process complexity, simplifies test stand design and maintenance and reduces the initial cost of OEM design and manufacture.
High cycle life, fast actuation and leak-free bi-directional pressure-balanced operation are all built into the co-ax PowerTube™ concept. Integral actuators help make the MK series coaxial valve a compact, low profile alternative to conventional solenoid valves on many gases in addition to helium.
