Users in the fields of automation engineering, the food and luxury food industries, as well as medical engineering, benefit with the universal valve 6144 from the low power consumption and the short, reproducible response times. This is enabled by the low internal friction in the paddle elastomer. Another advantage: for the same installation and the same pressure range, the valve can switch gaseous and liquid media, and all this with an outstanding service life. The triggering moment is having the flipper as the focal element of the valve. It provides for essential functions, such as media separation, absolute tightness, both externally and in the seat, as well as for optimum force transmission with different circuit functions.
