10mm pilot valves now with KTW drinking water approval

Thanks to the KTW certification of our 10mm pilot valves, Kendrion Kuhnke Automation can now provide precise, high-performance microvalves for applications in the drinking water sector.

The quality requirements for materials and system components that come into contact with drinking water are considerable. Drinking water is one of the most controlled foods.
In this context, Kendrion Kuhnke Automation has certified the 10mm solenoid valves of the 63 series with EPDM sealing according to the KTW and Elastomer guideline for direct drinking water contact. Simultaneously the compliance with microbiological requirements, defined in DVGW worksheet W270, has been confirmed according to DVGW worksheet W270, which is absolutely necessary for materials that come into contact with drinking water.

„Time-to-market is an important criterion for the successful launch of new products in today's fast-paced world. With the drinking water approval, we support our customers significantly with a faster and more cost-effective approval for their overall product.“
Tobias Klapetke, Market Segment Manager Fluid Technology at Kendrion

With the flexible modular system, valves of the 63 series product family enable nominal diameters ranging from 0.4 to 1.2 mm and provide kv values up to 0.53 l/min. An improvement in energy efficiency is achieved with power consumption down to less than 1W. The 63 product family from Kendrion Kuhnke Automation thus also follows the trend of miniaturization.
In combination with the KUHNKE FluidBoard® or the AirBoard® manifold Technology, customized and cost-effective valve assemblies in the drinking water sector can be easily generated.
