A one-way dome valve made of polycarbonate housing and featuring a silicone dome seal is a specialized valve designed to control the unidirectional flow of fluids or gases.
Features & benefits
Designed to prevent back-flow during a wide variety of fluid delivery applications
Low opening pressue: 0.43psi (0.03 bar)
Backpressure resistance > 45 psi (3.1 bar)
Silicone dome seal
The one-way dome valve with a polycarbonate housing and a silicone dome seal operates based on the principle of unidirectional flow control. When pressure or flow is applied in the desired direction, the silicone dome seal flexes, allowing fluid or gas to pass through. However, when there’s an attempt at reverse flow, the silicone seal provides a tight and reliable closure, preventing any flow in the opposite direction.
This type of valve is particularly well-suited for medical applications, such as in medical devices, where the unidirectional flow of fluids or gases is critical to patient safety and the integrity of medical procedures. It’s commonly found in devices like infusion pumps, respiratory equipment, or fluid delivery systems, ensuring that fluids or gases move in the intended direction without the risk of contamination or improper flow.
