Precise regulation of air and inert gases
Small, lightweight, quiet, no self-heating, extremely low power consumption and yet a high flow rate of up to 100 l/min – that sums up the proportional valve VEAE with piezo technology from Festo. It is ideal for battery-operated, portable medical devices such as ventilator breathing devices. However, its compact design also makes it suitable for stationary applications such as in ophthalmology or for dental drills.
The VEAE reliably and precisely regulates gas flows, whether oxygen, air, nitrogen or inert gases. And not just in medical technology, but also in applications in light assembly, the electronics and semiconductor industries, or the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Since the piezo ceramics maintain their current status even in the case of power failure, valves VEAE also offer a high level of process reliability.
High flow rates
Whether a direct gas supply or a mixture of gases is required, the high flow rate of up to 100 l/min makes the valve VEAE ideal for portable or stationary ventilator breathing devices for outpatient or hospital use. It provides reliable regulation of the air flow and thus the revolutions of compressed air drills such as those used in dentistry or surgery.
