ASHBY CROSS CO.: Mix and Dispense Valve

July 25, 2014

An electrically driven dynamic mix and dispense valve is now available for mixing low- to medium-viscosity adhesives. The DYNA-STAT® Dynamic Mix and Dispense Valve is ASHBY CROSS CO.: Mix and Dispense Valveelectrically driven and combines adjustable high-shear mixing with disposable mixer chambers that eliminate the need for a solvent flush cycle. Capable of two-component low- to medium-viscosity mixing, it is reportedly adaptable to most meter/mix systems and can be configured in a dual mode that combines a high-shear premix blade with standard disposable static mixers.

Available with an electronic console that includes a speed control that allows up to 5,000 RPM rotation, depending on viscosity, the valve reportedly provides repeatability and is offered in four mixer sizes. An air injector port is included to develop the cell structure in urethane foam applications; it can also be used as an in-line blending system for multi-component materials.
