Miniature Orifices And Valves

March 23, 2006
Stainless-steel precision orifices, check valves, flow controls, and fittings are used in analytical instruments, automation, environmental equipment, and medical devices for fluid-flow control (liquid or gases).

Orifices are available in setscrews, press-in inserts, 10-32 threads, pipe threads, quick connects, and processcontrol fitting assemblies. Sizes range from 0.003 to 0.125-in. diameter.

Check valves and flow controls come in setscrews, inserts, 10-32 threads, and pipe threads. Both zero differential and spring-loaded valves are available.
