The new Manual Tip-Seal® Kiss dispense valve from Sealant Equipment & Engineering Inc. is suitable for dispensing low- to high-viscosity 1-component adhesive and sealant materials such as silicone or polyurethane materials.

The manual valve is used in repetitive fluid dispensing applications where operators dispense short segments or long beads of material in adhesive bonding or sealing applications. The valve's pistol grip assembly has an electric trigger with a trigger guard and foam grip.

When the trigger is depressed the dispense controller starts the dispense cycle by opening the valve. The controller can be set to have the operator close the valve for visual dispensing or to automatically close the Tip-Seal valve for a precision metered volume of material.

The valve opens and closes its material passage at the tip of the nozzle to precisely start and stop material flow. Sealing at the tip also prevents material from hardening in the nozzle, oozing or dripping. The valve has a carbide tip, titanium-coated shaft, hardened seat and wear-resistant fluid seals.
