Austin, Tex. – DunAn Microstaq (DMQ) has released its next-generation flagship silQflo Silicon Servo Valve (SSV), achieving a 36 percent size reduction from its predecessor, the PDA-3.10, released in August 2013. The smaller footprint opens up new opportunities for overall weight reduction for compact designs and cost benefits, said the company.
The silQflo SSV is a MEMS-based microvalve that controls fluid flow or pressure with high precision and a fast response time. DMQ’s patented silQflo microvalve can be used as an individual unit or as an integrated component of a more complex device. In addition, the inherent proportionality of the actuator makes it suitable for proportional control or coupling with the Universal SuperHeat Controller/Sensor (USHX) or a similar feedback system, such as a servo control valve, said the company.
DMQ plans to stop producing the first generation silQflo chip family at the end of 2015.
