SEALANT EQUIPMENT & ENGINEERING INC.: Manual Dispense Valve

January 1, 2009

Sealant Equipment & Engineering Inc.’s new Manual Tip-Seal® Kiss dispense valve is ideal for dispensing low-to-high viscosity, one-component adhesive and sealant materials such as silicone or polyurethane. The manual valve used in repetitive fluid dispensing applications where operators dispense short segments or long beads of material in adhesive bonding or sealing applications.

The valve’s pistol grip assembly has an electric trigger with a rugged trigger guard and foam grip for added operator comfort. When the trigger is depressed, the dispense controller starts the dispense cycle by opening the valve. The controller can be set to have the operator close the valve for visual dispensing or to automatically close the Tip-Seal valve for a precision-metered volume of material.

The Tip-Seal design is ideal for dispensing solvent-based, moisture-curing and stringy materials such as silicones or polyurethanes. The valve opens and closes its material passage at the tip of the nozzle to precisely start and stop material flow. Sealing at the tip also prevents material from hardening in the nozzle, oozing or dripping.

The Tip-Seal valve features a carbide tip, titanium-coated shaft, hardened seat and wear-resistant fluid seals to extend valve life. Material is delivered to the Tip-Seal valve by either a metering assembly or under regulated pressure from supply tanks or pumps available from Sealant Equipment & Engineering Inc.
