Piezo valve technology helps to increase accuracy

Piezo valve technology helps to increase accuracy
A range of piezo valve-based pressure regulators from Festo help to deliver smooth, precise pressure control and metering suitable for a range of applications. Originally, the characteristics of piezo valves made them well suited for medical applications, as Paul Kendall, MedLab sector specialist for Festo UK explained: “Piezo valve technology has low energy consumption, does not generate heat and is silent in operation - so that it won’t disturb patients under treatment. Critically, the technology is also non-magnetic and so will not interfere with any other medical equipment.”
