Efficiency and reliability from the Bürkert Type 6164 cartridge valve

The Bürkert Type 6164 pneumatic cartridge solenoid valve sets new standards in reliability, service life & simplified pneumatic piloting. Read more here.

The Bürkert Type 6164 is more than just a pilot valve. This pneumatic cartridge valve delivers a superior ratio of size to fluidic performance, setting new standards in reliability, service life and simplified pneumatic piloting controls. No other cartridge valve offers as much optimal integration in block solutions and plastic injection components.

Industrial applications are becoming increasingly more complex. Size, fluidic performance, low power consumption and cost-efficiency are all crucial criteria for the modern manufacturer. Components need to be infinitely more advanced to deliver the return on investment that operators expect. The Type 6164 pneumatic cartridge solenoid valve is one such component that packs a huge performance punch from a small body.

Developed with the specific goal in mind of simplifying pneumatic control, the Type 6164 is the living embodiment of a ‘fit and forget’ device. Offering optimal integration in block solutions and plastic injection components, this 3/2-way pneumatic cartridge solenoid valve is built from high-grade PEEK with a durable FKM seal for an above-average lifecycle, uncompromising reliability and superior fluidic characteristics.  

Features and benefits of the Type 6164

As well as its compact, quiet and efficient characteristics, the Type 6164 comes with multiple certifications and conformities that make it an optimal choice for medical applications and point-of-care (POC) devices.

The Type 6164 pneumatic cartridge solenoid valve offers the following features and benefits:


The Type 6164 boasts a life span of 100 million cycles. That means it can either be used as an embedded component or for permanent integration with no need for regular maintenance or replacement. This level of reliability is perfect for any mission critical production processes that depend on the uptime of components at all times. Costly downtime is a thing of the past, thanks to the Type 6164’s incredible reliability and longevity.

Low power consumption

The Type 6164‘s impressively low power consumption of 0.7W as standard can reduce the overall power consumption of medical devices. This can be reduced further with external power reduction from 2.8W after 20 milliseconds to 0.3W. This enables us to offer versions of the 6164 with a larger orifice for higher flow rates in our DN 0.8, 1.0 and 1.2 mm ranges. All of which deliver a 100% ED continuous duty cycle, as the valves can be energised continuously. That means not only will your portable device go the extra mile, but it will be ready to use whenever it is needed the most. The low switching noise also reduces the sound level of the overall system, providing patients and caregivers the peace and quiet they need to go about their business.

Optimal integration

With an outer diameter of just 9mm and a height of 28mm, the Type 6164 can be easily integrated into plastic moulded parts and compact mobile devices. This pneumatic cartridge solenoid valve’s ‘plug-and-play’ design facilitates installations in even the smallest spaces. See for yourself below! In practice, with the space-saving Type 6164 onboard, increasingly more compact and portable POC devices can be designed around this solenoid valve.

O2 compatibility

The Type 6164 pneumatic cartridge solenoid valve is particularly suitable for the control of oxygen. Ideal for mechanical ventilation and O2 concentrators, the Type 6164’s peerless reliability and quiet operation make it the ideal valve for POC applications; even in the incubators of fragile newborns. The small but mighty Type 6164 solenoid valve really is designed for total peace of mind – in every sense.
