Lee Products Ltd is renowned in the industry for providing pioneering, innovative miniature fluid control components to various industries such as for aerospace, down-hole tools, machine tools, medical/ scientific instrumentation and ink-jet printing. Lee Products Ltd was established in 1948 and has since developed to form subsidiary companies in France, Germany, Italy and Scandinavia as well as to work with many distributors and agents around the world. Our team is focused and goal-driven to provide the industry with leading miniature fluid control components.
We work to strict quality control procedures and regulations to ensure that our products and services are of the highest quality. Our quality assurance systems are based on ISO 9001-2000/AS9100A, ISO10012-1, and ANSI/ASQC Z1.4-1993. We are dedicated to researching and developing existing and new products to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry. We use state of the art machinery which provides us with the scope to produce top quality precision components.
We began working in the field of electromechanical valve and pump technology more than three decades ago, swiftly becoming an industry leader. We have a wealth of experience with manifold technology which has several distinct advantages when compared to systems where discrete components are connected with just tubing. The number of leakage points is reduced and lower internal volumes are achieved. Manifolds offer a higher level of flexibility and are more easily assembled into the instrument. There are several different manufacturing techniques involved, including conventional, multi-layered, ant farm, combination and injection manifold. Our expertise in fluidics means we have a thorough knowledge of all the different techniques and understand both the components used, as well as the application they are to be used in. There is a good deal more information about manifold technology on our website, so do have a look.
At the Lee Company, we are committed to Quality Assurance and making sure QA is carried out at the highest level. We use quality systems based on ISO9001-2000/AS9100A, ISO10012-1 and ANSI/ASQC Z1.4-1993. We maintain a documented lot control and traceability system. Further, our EFS product group bases their quality control system on the FDA’s GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) manual and our IMH Group’s quality system holds QS9000 certification, which is the automotive industry standard. As a result of the stringent use of these systems, the Lee Company has been awarded Certified Supplier Status by many of our customers. We welcome quality assurance surveys, audits and source inspections and will work to any special QA requirements.
We operate out of over 700,000 square feet of premises at four sites situated in Westbrook and Essex, Connecticut. We carry out the vast majority of our manufacturing processes out of these modern premises. Machining, moulding, assembling and testing are all carried out in-house. We are proud of our up to date facilities, where we utilise the newest and best production equipment. Another factor adding to efficient manufacturing and speedy delivery is our computerised production control system. Additionally, we carry out comprehensive inventories of standard parts to further ensure timely delivery.
Featuring a 2-port normally closed design, the ultra miniature HDI solenoid valve is exceptionally small in size, incredibly lightweight and brings with it a consistent and reliable performance throughout its life. In a smaller package, this product offers similar performance found in our traditional 3-port HDI design. Today’s demands require further integration of both new and more advanced technology into smaller and smaller packages. Our high density interface solenoid valve delivers exactly this. For more information please visit our website, or, get in touch with us via phone/email and we’ll be happy to help you in any way that we can.
We are proud to have created many pioneering components during the years that have proved essential for use in many industries. In the 1960s we created the Lee Interface Fluidic (LIF) solenoid valves to meet high performance and reliability demands of the industry. Since the development and success of this first electro-fluidic system, we have designed and created a range of fluid components that are suitable for complete systems for flowing all kinds of fluids and gases.
Please contact us for advice and information on how to build complete fluid handling systems using our highly accurate and reliable components.
The Lee Visco-Jet Micro Mixer provides the ultimate solution in static mixing efficiency. It features a series of 36 critically controlled spin chambers that subject the incoming liquids to a vigorously repeated mixing process and does not require electrical or mechanical input as the mixing energy is drawn from the liquid itself. The LFP Series of Piezo-Electric Valves feature high speed and analogue switching. These valves are designed for applications where high speed switching valves are needed or where flow rates need to be regulated by varying the valves restriction.
Lee Products Ltd paved the way with the design, manufacture and supply of precision microhydraulics and was the only authority supplying the industry for more than 50 years.
We can achieve components from less than 0.01 in up to 1.0 in diameter and from 0.1 to 28grammes as well as size and weight reduction using operating pressures to 8,000 psi. Our 100% inspection and testing services enable us to provide products of the highest quality and the highest reliability. We provide innovative solutions for all kind of industry applications.

The ultra compact Lee Piloting Solenoid Valve was designed and manufactured for use in aerospace hydraulic and fuel systems, oil tool applications, and other related high pressure applications.
The valve features high performance properties (efficient force/stroke relationship), low power consumption, normally closed and normally open valves for 3000, 4000, and 5000 psi, single
coil and dual coil configurations, multiple lead wire egress options, and integral connectors.
Please visit our website for further technical information.
Our Lee Floserts are pressure compensated flow controls designed for controlling the velocity of an actuator under varying loads. Lee floserts can increase the stiffness of a hydrostatic bearing or limit the maximum flow rate to control the speed of a pump or motor. The Flosert senses the flow rate in terms of a differential pressure across a fixed orifice and a variable metering orifice automatically adjusts to keep the pressure and the flow rate constant.

The Lee Shuttle Valve is supplied in four configurations and is designed to isolate the normal from the emergency hydraulic system during normal operation.
Configurations include: a spring based shuttle valve with the emergency port normally closed, the detented shuttle valve which features a poppet latch to close off either the emergency port or the normal port, selective shuttle valves with a non-biased, loose ball design, and inverse shuttle valves where the lower pressure inlet port is open to the common port instead of the higher pressure inlet port.
Lee Shuttle Valves feature miniature insert fits in the head of the actuator, non-interflow design, and low leakage or zero leakage.
We provide Lee Checks in a range of sizes and as forward or reverse flow, side exit, zero leak, or pilot operated versions and are supplied in three basic configurations.
