With modern, analytical, preparative, high pressure or low pressure chromatography systems, flexibility of choice for any given flow path dedicated for specific routines and applications can be realized by implementing manual or automatic switching valves.
Time saving by avoiding regular re-fitting of flow paths and implementing automated switching routines as part of a dedicated chromatography method are among the advantages that can be realized by using switching valves in a chromatography system.
It is for these purposes that Sykam developed a complete range of switching valves entirely produced at the Sykam factory in Germany.
The Sykam S 6000 series is the range of high pressure multi port analytical and preparative switching valves and injection valves. The S 6000 valves are made of Stainless Steel or biocompatible versions made of PEEK. Each valve is available as manual valve or motorized valve
The Sykam S 6800 series is the range of maintenance free chemically inert low pressure switching valves
All valves can be used manually or with a motorized actuator.
