Techcon Enhances Microshot Needle Valve
Improved micro dispensing valve.
Garden Grove, CA — Techcon Systems, a product group of OK International, has enhanced the performance of its high-precision TS5440 Series Microshot Needle Valve to reduce maintenance costs and widen the application range. The enhancement includes an upgraded seal, made with a more robust material. In addition, a stainless steel air cylinder version has been added to the valve series. The new tougher seal extends the valve life by at least 300 percent, which translates into higher productivity and lower maintenance costs. The new seal also allows the valve to handle more aggressive and abrasive fluids. In addition, the new stainless steel valve is suitable for use in harsh environments. The part number for the new valve is TS5440-SS.

The TS5440 Microshot Needle Valve series is designed to dispense low to medium viscosity material with very precise deposits over a wide range of shot and bead sizes down to a fraction of a micro liter. An internal spring return makes the valve fully adaptable for use with the company's time/pressure controllers. A short opening stroke provides extremely fast, positive shut-off. An external stroke control adjustment makes it easy for the operator to fine tune shot sizes. The unit's compact design allows for mounting flexibility and easy integration into automated applications.
