The 2600-041 Series Snuf-Bak Dispense Valve is designed for clean shutoff of thixotropic and cohesive materials such as viscous silicones, epoxies and urethanes. Incorporates fluid materials in a compact KISS Series valve body. Provides suction when valve closes. Is 1.5" x 3.5" and is rated for 4,000 psi (275 bar). Valve is double air actuated with two 1/8 NPT ports for a 4-way pneumatic valve connection. Body has two 1/4 NPT fluid inlet ports and a 1/4 NPT dispense port; has two holes for #10 or M6 screw and two 1/4" dowel holes for mounting. May be mounted to robot tooling, automation fixtures or manual handle assemblies. Fluid suction volume can be controlled and locked with a set-screw adjustment. Valves are used to dispense one-part epoxy, urethane, silicone, PVC and acrylic for bonding, gasketing, coating, potting and filling applications.
