This company’s new 2600-041 Series Snuf-Bak®Dispense Valve is designed for fast and clean shut-off of thixotropic and cohesive materials such as viscous silicones, epoxies, and urethanes. The all-new design incorporates the company’s trademark Snuf-Bak action of fluid materials in a compact KISS ®Series valve body. The Snuf-Bak feature provides a suction action when the valve closes to eliminate or reduce strings and fluid drips from the dispense tip.
The new 2600-041 Snuf-Bak Dispense Valve is only 1.5 inches (38 mm) square and 3.5 inches (89 mm) long, and is rated for 4,000 psi (275 bar). The valve is double air-actuated with two ⅛ NPT ports for a 4-way pneumatic valve connection. The divorced-design fluid body has two ¼ NPT fluid inlet ports and a ¼ NPT dispense port to accept a range of available nozzles.
The 2600-041 Dispense Valve has two user features. The body has two holes for #10 or M6 screws and two ¼" dowel holes for accurate mounting. The valve may be mounted to robot tooling, automation fixtures or available manual handle assemblies. Also, the fluid suction volume can be controlled and locked in place with a setscrew adjustment.
2600-041 Snuf-Bak Dispense Valves are robotically, automatically and manually used to dispense one-part epoxy, urethane, silicone, PVC, and acrylic for bonding, gasketing, coating, potting, and filling applications in aerospace, appliance, contractor, defense, electronics, filters, marine, medical, sporting goods, automotive, truck, and bus assembly dispensing applications.
