With the TwinPower technology the fluid technology specialist Burkert has developed a new actuator design for solenoid valves that increases the power density by using two coils. This innovative actuator technology, which allows a very compact design, is now available as a complete standard valve line in widths of 10mm and 16mm, therefore offering more than 1000 possible variants for each width with optimal flexibility in adapting the valves to specific applications.
The enhanced TwinPower valves, available in the body materials PEEK and PPS as well as the seal materials FFKM, FKM and EPDM, provide optimal solutions for virtually every medium. For each valve type there are more than 1000 different variants in the widths 10mm and 16mm with different fluidic and electrical connections, such as hose connections, flanged versions and UNF threaded connections. Each single component in the valves was analyzed critically during development of the TwinPower series to identify potentials for optimization. By improving the membrane seal, for example, it was possible to achieve a leakage rate of 10-6mbar*l/min. In addition, the geometry of all the bodies was optimized for improved flushability.
