International Polymer Solutions Inc. (IPS) specializes in providing high-purity engineered polymer solutions to the global market. We manufacture high-purity plastic fluid handling and actuation devices for industries and applications requiring engineered performance using PTFE, PFA, PVDF, PEEK, Polypropylene, PVC and other specialized polymers. Our standard line of Solenoid Valves, Pneumatic Valves, Manual Valves, Air Cylinders, spray guns, fittings and connectors ship from our factory in Irvine, California on a daily basis. These products are ideal for use in semiconductor, bio-medical, pharmaceutical, food and sanitary process, high-purity laboratory, and other general chemical handling environments. Our Polymer Fabrication and Welding capabilities enable us to supply custom tanks, containment vessels, storage boxes, manifolds, cabinets and flow benches to fit your specific needs.
Miniature Solenoid Valves: Our Miniature Solenoid Valves include 2-Way and 3-Way Valves with a variety of body configurations, seat sealing methods and solenoid coils. The all PTFE wetted flow path design is optimized for ultra clean and chemical applications. Miniature Solenoid Valves, with a 100% wetted flow path, offers precision performance under extreme conditions. Our valve also custom configures the products for specific application requirements, including vacuum applications and unique manifold configurations. Our valve is widely used in semiconductor, pharmaceutical, bio-medical and chemical process applications. Configurable with a EPDM, Viton, Aflas, or Kalrez O-Ring, or PTFE Hard Seat, the miniature Series PTFE Solenoid Valve line provides unsurpassed chemical compatibility with a wide range of flow media.
Pneumatic Valves: We offer different types of Pneumatic Valves such as
- Pneumatic Diaphragm Valves
- Chemical Resistant Valves
- Inline Diaphragm Valves
- 2-Way Water Valve
- Teflon Pneumatic Valves
- Pneumatic Drain Valves
- Quick Dump Valves
- Dilution Drain Valves
- Diverter Valves
Precision Plug Valves: Our Precision Plug Valve (PPV) is a precision machined manual control valve manufactured from 100% virgin PTFE (all wetted surfaces) and PVDF Stem Nut. The PTFE body and stem perform equally well with harsh chemicals and ultra clean DI water. The basic construction is a single through orifice with a tapered body that matches the tapered plug for positive shut-off. Various orifice and port sizes are available as standard items. Our Precision Plug Valve are supplied in two configurations: Straight Flow Pattern ("A") and Angled Flow Pattern ("B".
Air Cylinders: Air Cylinders are frequently used where splash-back or fumes from highly aggressive chemicals are prime considerations. Our air cylinders are available in stroke lengths from 1 inch to 16 inches and have standard easy-to-use mounting and optional position sensors. Our High Purity Plastic Air Cylinders are corrosion resistant, durable and light weight.
Suck Back Valves: Our Suckback Valves are ideal for acid, solvent, photoresist solutions and other process dispensed chemistries. Suckback Valve will pull vacuum and prevent excessive dripping from the dispensing nozzle. The Suckback Valve is constructed of an "all wetted" PTFE media flow path. Our 104168 Suckback Valve incorporates the suckback feature in a Normally Closed pneumatic valve. When air pressure is removed from the valve actuator, an internal diaphragm is pushed upward which forms a vacuum in the valve body. While the valve is closing, the vacuum sucks back the final droplets of process media. Thereafter, the valve completely closes and seals the media flow path. An additional unique feature of the 104168 Suckback Valve is a Vacuum Adjustment Knob which allows the user to set the vacuum level.
PTFE Aspirator Devices: PTFE Air & Liquid Aspirators are manufactured from virgin PTFE (PTFE - E.I. Dupont) and are designed for efficient and rapid siphoning of hard to handle chemicals. Our Air Aspirator uses clean dry shop air (CDA) or Nitrogen to initiate and sustain a natural or forced siphon. Applications include the draining and mixing of containment vessels and the removal of saturated waste chemistry. Air Aspirators are also used where recovery recirculation is desired in process chemistries. Our Liquid Aspirators use common city water or DI Water to aspirate and dilute harsh chemical baths. One common application is the dilution siphoning of Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4) used for chemical cleaning and etching. Air & Liquid Aspirators are sold as standalone siphoning bodies or as Aspirator Kits. Kits include 8 feet of PTFE Tubing and Compression Fittings. Our CHK Kit includes a special PTFE check valve mounted on the siphon port to prevent possible back flow.
PTFE Check Valves: Our Check Valve feature all PTFE wetted surfaces for excellent performance in all high purity applications. Our PTFE design resists chemical corrosion and other elements within a harsh process environments. Check Valves are commonly found as backflow preventers in clean processes. They are a simple and ideal device where directional flow control is a must. Depending on the check valve size selected and cracking pressure, some external non-wetted components may include Polypropylene or PVDF. The special internal control spring for 3 psi to 6 psi (nominal 5 psi) cracking pressure is machined virgin PTFE. Whereas, for higher cracking pressures the spring construction is doubled Teflon Coated Stainless Steel precision ground.
