The poppet valve can be used in numerous applications to dispense low-to-medium viscosity materials such as adhesives, silicones, greases, and other filled materials. This economical valve improves fluid dispensing accuracy and consistency. The valve’ design minimizes friction between the actuating components of the valve and the material being dispensed, which substantially decreases valve maintenance and down-time. The valve''s stroke adjustment and control feature offers precise adjustment of fluid deposit volume and flow. Material is shut-off cleanly at the end of each cycle, which is particularly significant for tacky or stringy materials. Peak performance is obtained when actuated with the manufacturer’s valve controller.
