High precision valve hits market


A new aseptic spray valve has been developed which dispenses precise, consistent amounts of stent coatings, saline solutions, silicone oils and other fluids used in medical and pharmaceutical production processes.

The 784S-SS valve, made by EFD, a subsidiary of coatings manufacturer Nordson Corporation, is precision machined from 316L stainless steel for high compatibility with a wide range of low to medium-viscosity fluids. It features a unique aseptic design with a fluid flow path that is free of any entrapment areas – a critical consideration in sterile and aseptic fluid applications.

The valve incorporates EFD’s proven Low Volume Low Pressure precision spray technology, which reduces production costs through fast, controlled fluid application without waste or overspray. Benefits in precision coating processes include greater process control, fewer rejects and lower production costs.

Nordson Corporation is one of the world’s leading producers of precision dispensing equipment that applies adhesives, sealants and coatings to a broad range of consumer and industrial products during manufacturing operations. The company also manufactures equipment used in the testing and inspection of electronic components as well as technology-based systems for curing and surface treatment processes.
