Lee Products is introducing the 093 check valve, which is the smallest micro-fluidic product of its type from this manufacturer. The stainless steel, ultra-miniature, high-precision, side-exit check valve has a diameter of just 2.5mm, weighs only 0.14g and is designed for system pressures of up to 4000psi.
It is based on the same field-proven technology used for the Lee 0.187inch diameter side-exit check valve and is 100 per cent tested and inspected. However, as it weighs only 0.14g, the 093 valve offers a 90 per cent reduction in weight over the 187 version and is 50 per cent shorter. In addition, this results in a corresponding reduction in installation boss size and weight.
Available in a forward-flow configuration, the 093 check valve is constructed entirely of stainless steel and features a hard, metal-to-metal seat to ensure durability and long life. The 093 valve is suitable for a range of specialised engineering applications, including aerospace, down-hole oil tools, hi-tech automotive (such as Formula One) or wherever a consistent, reliable performance is required in ultra-miniature fluid handling systems.
