Burkert Microfluidic Valves
Burkert Microfluidic Valves are the wide range of miniaturized units for time-pressure dosing of liquids.
Dosing is one of the most important actions in microfluidics. There are several principles of dosing:
- Syringe Pump
Time-pressure method is used when the material from separate tank gradually moves through the valve (under pressure). The main feature of such a principle is the lack of mechanical moving parts in the flow line. Such units have a good flushability, long life, and a compact design.
Syringe Pumps accurately dose tiny volumes of fluid. Dosing is performed intermittently through suction. The 3/2-way valve the most often works in those systems. The devices of this type are also operating in the air-isolated applications.
Volumetric dosing principle is perfect for situations when a continuous process is needed. High working speed makes it irreplaceable for a wide range of applications. It’s very popular in medicine.
Burkert manufactures the following types of microfluidic valves:
- Pivoted armature
The company produces ready-made systems for each of the methods. The German company began to work with Microfluidics since 1993.
Burkert gained vast experience in the development and maintenance of such products. Therefore, its products are very popular as the manufacturer offers simple and reliable solutions.
