Graco Inc., a manufacturer of fluid-handling equipment, recently announced the launch of its Voltex Dynamic Mix Valve.
Designed for dispensing two-component adhesives, such as foaming urethanes and silicones, the new mix valve provides uniform and consistent blending for difficult-to-dispense materials for various applications.
The Voltex valve is built to handle foaming urethanes and silicones that are notoriously challenging to work with because of their fast reactivity and expanding nature. In such cases, the dispensing equipment and process are keys to preventing poorly mixed material and potential downtime.
Graco’s Voltex valve is built with durable seals and check valves, disposable mixing elements, a reliable servo-electric motor and innovative error detection technology to combat these challenges. This valve has already proven applicable to emerging applications, including for the electric vehicle (EV) battery sector.
“The simple design, coupled with Graco’s technical excellence and known quality, makes this valve a valuable addition to our meter, mix and dispense equipment lineup,” said Matt Bergman, Global Sealant and Adhesive Equipment business manager for Graco’s Applied Fluid Technologies Division. “With Graco’s proven complete solution and key relationships with material suppliers, the valve is already an integral part of the dispensing process for several battery manufacturers.”
With precision control at every corner of the meter, mix and dispense process, this complete dispensing solution meets the needs of many emerging market applications. From filter sealing and automotive bonding to appliance gasketing and battery potting, the Voltex Dynamic Mix Valve is a reliable solution capable of handling challenging material and application demands.
For a complete dispensing package, the Voltex valve’s flexible design seamlessly integrates with Graco’s EFR, PR70, and HFR metering systems.
