Micro spray valve addresses product miniaturisation problems

27 May 2009

As products continue to pack more features and capabilities into smaller and smaller packages, the size of the fluid deposits used to build them also decreases. This makes getting the right amount of material in the right location—and doing it consistently—increasingly important. To meet this challenge, EFD has developed the new 787MS-SS MicroSpray valve. Based on the company's proven Low Volume Low Pressure (LVLP) precision spray technology, it provides fast, controlled application of a wide range of low- to medium-viscosity fluids, including solvents, lubricants and UV-cure coatings.

The valve features a small gauge (0.013” – 0.004” internal diameter) disposable dispensing tip in place of a standard spray nozzle. This concentrates the LVLP air used to atomize the coating into uniform spray patterns as small as 0.0625 inches in diameter—over 60% smaller than EFD’s standard spray valve configuration. Benefits include greater process control, faster throughput, fewer rejects and lower production costs.
