At the COMPAMED 2022 trade fair, held Nov. 14-17 in Düsseldorf, Germany, Emerson displays products and technologies for medical device manufacturers from its ASCO brand of valve technologies.
Emerson ensures full compliance with the European Union’s Medical Device Regulation. The ASCO fluid-control portfolio is uniquely designed to address the speed, specificity, and exceptional quality demanded by leaders in the analytical and medical world.
Here’s are some of Emerson’s offerings at COMPAMED.
The ASCO Series 090 line of miniature solenoid valves is designed for use with air and inert gases. Their compact, lightweight architecture and low power consumption make the ASCO Series 090 ideal for portable medical devices. The valves’ exceptional service lifetime of over 50 million cycles significantly increases OEM instrument reliability. Typical applications include oxygen delivery and compression therapy devices and gas analyzers.
ASCO Series 062 rocker isolation valves are designed for use with neutral or highly aggressive
liquids in clinical diagnostic and laboratory instruments. The isolating diaphragm prevents heat
transfer, and the special rocker mechanism has easy-to-flush and low-volume internal cavities.
With 16 mm size, both two-way and three-way functions, the valves are interchangeable with most 16-mm isolation valves in the market. Typical applications include in-vitro diagnostics,
hematology, DNA sequencing, and industrial liquid analyzers.
The ASCO Series 038 miniature isolation solenoid valves offer isolated fluid control and are
designed for use with neutral or aggressive liquids in clinical and diagnostic instruments. With a
width of 5.7 mm, incredibly low internal volume, and low power consumption, the valves are
perfectly suited for dispensing and precise flow control. The valves handle aggressive reagents while reducing their consumption, which translates into critical cost savings for diagnostic
laboratories. Latching coils are available for minimal heat transfer to thermally sensitive samples. Applications that are well suited to the Series 038 valves include clinical diagnostics, DNA sequencing, immunoassay, and sample preparation.
These proportional solenoid valves are designed to control the flow of air and inert gases by
varying the electrical input signal to the coil. The compact pressure-compensated architecture of
the Preciflow solenoid valve saves valuable space in analytical and medical instrumentation
applications, including respiratory therapy, gas chromatography, blood-pressure monitoring, and
anesthesia delivery. Their low power consumption meets the most stringent instrument requirements.
ASCO Series 088 miniature solenoid valves are designed for use with air and inert gases and can
also be used to pilot other valves or cylinders. Compact architecture and low power consumption of only 1.3W make them ideal for portable medical devices. Typical applications include respiratory therapy, dental, anesthesia delivery, and gas analyzers.
