These 2-way and 3-way valves have wetted surfaces molded
entirely of engineered, high-performance materials such as PEEK, Ultem®,
Radel®, Viton®-GF with FDA and UPS class VI approval. The valves withstand
chemical attack by corrosive and biological fluids while remaining inert and
maintaining the integrity of the fluid pathway.
The valves pictured are for a dialysis application and
are configured to provide high flow with an exceptionally high tolerance to
particulate matter and precipitates. Poppets and seats are configured to
provide bubble-tight leakage characteristics.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
