With an innovative concept and a pioneering approach to valve design, Mead’s new technology has directly challenged the conventions of traditional valve manufacturers. In doing so, Mead has overcome many of the restrictions and limitations of conventional valve manufacturing, resulting in a unique design that minimizes valve size, reduces air turbulence and lowers valve costs.

“Half Shell” Design
The heart of the Isonic® concept is its patented “Half Shell”, design.
Composed of two mirror image halves, Isonic® allows its flow channels
and internal component compartments to be designed directly into these molded
body sections. Assembly is achieved by simply inserting the various valve
elements into their corresponding “half-shell” pockets. Internal components
are easily positioned to make optimal use of space. The valve is completed
by ultrasonically welding the two valve segments, creating a strong bond
and hermetic seal. This design totally eliminates the need for fasteners,
adhesives, gaskets and inserts.
Maximum Air Flow
||Instead of the angular passages of most conventional valves,
Isonic® internal channels are aerodynamically shaped for maximum
air flow and minimal internal friction. Eliminating sharp corners and abrupt
changes in direction reduces air turbulence and energy loss. Normally round
air passages are replaced by thin, deep, tape-like channels that conserve
space and optimize air flow.
Resistant to Harsh Conditions
Molded from a high performance thermoplastic, Isonic® achieves superior
heat, impact and chemical resistance. It is recognized with CSA, making
this system suitable for many environments.
The 2 Second Push-In Manifold and Valve
The Isonic® Mod3 manifold system has been designed to virtually
eliminate downtime, eliminating all end plates, screws, o-rings and gaskets
customarily found in manifold systems. With this “plug-in” design, replacing
an individual valve can be accomplished in seconds - simultaneously making
an electrical and pneumatic connection, without the aid of any tools!
The Isonic® valve series can naturally be implemented as either
part of a manifold system or stand alone and have option of either internal
or external pilot pressure.
