Valves

Zaxis uses the highest quality thermally isolated aseptic valves, excellent for use in clean room applications such as can be found in the medical field. Knowing your test specification such as test pressure, test volume, and desired speed/flow rate will help determine which valves to use for your application.

Zaxis carries a wide variety of valves to support multiple applications. Most notable are our proprietary Type 2 valves, designed for sensitivity, speed, and thermal stability. Zaxis valves and valve manifolds are aseptic and made with the highest quality materials, perfect for use in testing medical products. The internal test volume held within the test manifold is as small as possible, at less than 1 cubic centimeter. Pilot air actuates the Type 2 valves, which eliminates much of the heat transfer created by standard solenoid/poppet valves. Excess heat transferred into a small sensitive part can adversely affect the test pressure, causing lower test sensitivity and longer test times.
