US-based Parker-Hannifin Corporation’s PH business unit, Parker Precision Fluidics, recently launched its latest highly advanced valve that will aid a large number of specialized medical applications. The miniature high-flow proportional valve, VSO MAX HP, consumes approximately 25 percent less power compared to similar valves and has been designed for medical applications in which pressure and volume control issues are paramount.
Suited for a host of medical applications including ventilators, insufflators and anesthesia delivery machines, the VSO MAX HP valve can offer flows as high as 200 SLPM at 45 psi using power as low as 2 watts. Capable of achieving an operating pressure of up to 120 psi (8.27 bar), the latest valve from VSO proportional family renders the need for an inlet regulator unnecessary. VSO MAX HP’s other diligent features include repeatable flow performance, ability to comply with REACH and RoHS regulations and oxygen service use that will likely enhance the product’s overall performance.
