The mp-cv is a passive check valve. The valve prevents the medium from flowing back when the micropump is switched off. This is especially important in systems where there is a certain height difference between the individual parts.
This check valve is a passive valve. This means that it does not require electronics to be fully functional. In addition, the mp-cv very small. Due to this, you can quickly and easily integrate this valve into a system. All you need is tubing with a diameter of 1.3 mm. This is the same hose thickness that is required for all other Bartels components.
The mp-cv check valve is made of stainless steel. It has a typical opening pressure of < 35 mbar. The maximum back pressure may be 500 mbar. At the same time, the mp-cv has a leakage rate of only <20 µl/h for DI water (at 500 mbar).
You would like to test the check valve? In this shop, you will find all necessary components and accessories. You will need an mp6 micropump, the corresponding control electronics and suitable tubing.
If you are looking for active valves instead, we also have those in our portfolio. On our website, you will find a listing of all the valves we offer with our systems. Additionally, you will find these valves in our microfluidic kits here in the store.
