Lightweight valves ideal for OEM flow switching

Lightweight valves ideal for OEM flow switching

A semi-inert solenoid valve specifically developed to handle moderately aggressive liquids and gases across a wide range of fluid handling applications, is the latest product to be introduced by Lee Products. The key features of these compact LHIX Series valves are lightweight and low power consumption. This makes them ideal for use in inkjet printing, gas detection devices, anesthesia and reagent delivery systems, in addition to other similar OEM flow switching applications. Other features include enhanced elastomer inertness using (FFKM / PFE) elastomers and low internal volume. 


The valves weigh less than 4.5 grams, measure just 1.12” OAL x 0.28in in diameter and operate with low power consumption of just 550 mW. Flow rates on gases for the 2 way option are; 11 LPM at 10 psig and for 3 way; 6.6 LPM at 10 psig.  Latching and non-latching designs are available.


To ensure optimum design flexibility LHIX valves are available in plug-in, face mount and ported soft tube configurations. In addition to the FFKM and PFE elastomers, the wetted materials of the valves are; PPS (plunger head), PBT (housing), 316 CRES (spring), Epoxy, along with Lee’s alloy armature and plunger stop feature ensuring superior corrosion resistance for more demanding applications. In addition to the options and configurations available Lee Products provides a range of standard manifolds for testing as well as customer-designed manifold configurations for production.
