Built for chemical analysis, fluid and gas delivery applications, the check valve meets most clean room and sanitary requirements, non-contact medical delivery, and can be used with food processing and potable water. It comes in six configurations with male and female Luer with both locking swivel and slip connections. They come with silicone disk valves, but in large quantities, other materials are available. It is a one-way valve, working in pressure applications ranging from .2 to 125 psi. The have ISO-standard-compliant conical tapers.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
