High Performance Solenoids

Miniature Valves

Miniature valves of Kendrion are ideally suited for applications in the low pressure range, with low voltages and for aggressive media. The solenoids are developed on request ensuring customer-optimized functionality.

Product Information

The miniature valves of Kendrion are small valves which were developed in cooperation with our customers. They range from diaphragm isolating valves for the beverage industry and medical engineering to bistable miniature valves for the end consumer market.

Diaphragm isolating valves are particularly suitable for applications controlling aggressive or sensitive media. The advantage is that the medium does not get in touch with metallic components, preventing the medium from being contaminated. The material of the diaphragm is determined by the medium.

Bistable valves hold currentless in the closed and opened position of a 2/2 directional valve. The main advantage of the battery-operated valves is that they can rest in closed and open position for a longer period of time. A short pulse closes or opens the valve, significantly extending the battery lifetime

All miniature valves excel by the fact that they have been tailor-made. This allows the customer to determine the position and shape of the electric and mechanical connections, facilitating installation and making perfect use of installation space. Furthermore, only the required functions are realized so that - compared to standard valves - significant cost reductions can be achieved.

The miniature valves of Kendrion are designed for large quantities. The development costs are born by Kendrion whereas the customer pays for the tools and, if necessary, auxiliary devices. This allows Kendrion to offer miniature valves at lowest costs.

Please note that the magnet valves described are all product examples which are not available over the counter.
