More than just air.
The control and regulation of fluids, both in liquid and gaseous forms, requires increasingly sophisticated and technically advanced components as the applications become more and more demanding.
At the same time the sectors requiring solenoid valves, for example, are continually evolving and expanding.
The use of solenoid valves is often determined by factors such as safety, environmental concerns and the lifetime of equipment in instruments which operate in some of the most difficult sectors where the fluids to be controlled can be toxic, aggressive or may require high speed operation.
Fluid dynamics is the area of mechanics dealing with the laws of liquid and gaseous properties. Solenoid valves are the components which intercept, control and regulate the flow of fluids automatically within a circuit or system. Solenoid valves can transmit power and, especially, be used to provide control or pilot signals to other separate valves or circuits.
Solutions in this area typically consist of components that are becoming highly advanced due to the increasing integration between electronic and mechanical technologies. The research and design of new fluid dynamic components is focused on further miniaturisation whilst retaining the same flow performances and this is especially true for solenoid valves.
In addition to miniaturisation, the following technologies are also being transferred to new generations of Fluid Control Technology components:
- Proportional control systems
- Systems for PWM and PCM control techniques
- Separation membrane systems for the control of aggressive fluids
- Systems for intrinsic safety control
- Systems for latch control
- Integrated systems with position, pressure and flow sensors
The producers of medical devices must design, manufacture and distribute their products in Europe in compliance with the safety standards of the Directive 93/42/EEC and other latest directives. The products fulfilling the directive requirements are marked with CE.
Camozzi provides customers with components, expertise and experience to help them produce medical devices. Although Camozzi do not manufacture complete medical devices themselves the contribution made in terms of the components supplied can be clearly demonstrated.
The certificate of conformity with the Medical Directive as an “intermediate manufacturer” proves that Camozzi meets the necessary requirements in terms of expertise and quality.
The certificate was awarded after passing an assessment which was overseen by Det Norske Veritas to comply with the Medical Directive and the international ISO 13485 standards.
