Emerson Demonstrate at Arab Health How Manufacturers can Reduce Product Development time and Optimise Machine Design

14 January 2018


New ASCO modular valve block system for fluid handling in dental treatment units showcases Emerson’s expertise at developing Microfluidic Solutions that add value to the manufacturers of analytical and medical machinery.


Emersons Valve Block System is the latest of a broad selection of products, designed specifically for the use of OEMs in the analytical and medical fields.  Combining several functions in one easy to install product, the valve block has a proportional valve to enable variable speed pneumatic control of the dentist’s tools, and valves to control water flow that do not allow calcium build up on the internals, a common cause of failure.


Along with the valve block system, Emerson will show standard ASCO solenoid valves.  Many of the products on show are available at two days notice as samples, making it even easier and quicker for OEMS and machine builders to develop new variations or prototypes, which can be prove to be a competitive advantage.  The samples are delivered in person by a specialist who will work with the manufacturer to design and specify the optimal solution.


The ASCO solutions show what can be achieved by selecting the most suitable components from a vast portfolio of products and adapting them to precisely match what the application requires. This applies not only to the way the valves function but also to their size, the materials, and the electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic connections.  The desired solution may consist of a single valve, an assembly or a complete block of valves with integrated electronics, sensors and connectors. Emerson will also develop and manufacture the electronics and integrate the software into the complete fluid handling system. A wide selection of sensors and interfaces complement the range of valves.


The new dental valve block is a modular system for fluid control in the chair’s instrument console.  The valve block is available in three versions to allow the placement of the pneumatic actuators (for drills and polishers etc.) to be as flexible as possible. Up to four valve blocks can be combined into a compact unit and centrally controlled to allow individual configuration of the console.


You can visit Emerson at Arab Health on the 29. January to 01. February to discuss with their specialists how they can help you optimise your machine and manufacturing processes.  You can find them at Stand Z3.H50, in the Tradex-Pavilion.
