Press Release Summary:
Featuring captive capillary volume of 0.5 ÂµL, Injection Manifold Mount System enables precise injection of fluid into flow stream. Any ported VHS micro-dispense solenoid valve can be mounted so that outlet port is in close proximity to flow stream, ensuring minimal captive capillary volume and increased injected volume repeatability. Available in 1, 2, 3, and 4-place standard configurations, system suits laboratory, biomedical, and chemistry applications.
Original Press Release:
VHS Solenoid Valve Manifold Is Ideal for Flow Injection Applications
WESTBROOK, CT - An Injection Manifold Mount System which enables the precise injection of a fluid into a flow stream is the latest addition to The Lee Company's range of miniature components. This new system means any ported Lee VHS (Very High Speed) micro-dispense solenoid valve can be mounted so that the outlet port is in close proximity to the flow stream. This ensures the dual benefit of minimal captive capillary volume and increased injected volume repeatability.
Lee VHS two-way solenoid valves are acknowledged as having set the standard for applications requiring the very precise control of liquids, down to microliter and nanoliter dispense volumes. As a result, this new mounting system will be ideal for laboratory, biomedical and chemistry applications, and especially for flow injection analyzers (FIA).
The system features a captive capillary volume of 0.5µL and pressures up to 120 psi. Teflon® (ferrule) is the only additional wetted material, since the mounting nut and pressure plate do not contact the fluid.
The manifolds are available in one, two, three and four-place standard configurations. For greater flexibility, and to enable future expansion, boss plugs are available to effectively seal any unused valve ports in the manifold. Valves and plugs can be installed and removed repeatedly as required and the valves can be rotated after installation without compromising the seal.
