The 97116 Handheld Valve with Finger Switch is for timed dispensing and is actuated using a finger switch. It is ergonomically designed for comfort, application control, and a low actuation force to reduce hand fatigue. It also incorporates a suck-back feature which prevents dripping or stringing. A 1/4 inch feed line delivers the product up to 15,000 cPs viscosity thru this valve. An optional feed line upgrade kit (item # 97220) will allow dispensing of adhesives up to 80,000 cPs.
This valve must be used in conjunction with a controller and product reservoir. An air signal is sent to this valve which opens the pneumatic actuator, allowing adhesive to flow.
When adhesive low level sensing is required, select the Dual Channel Integrated Dispenser (low viscosity 1390322) or (high viscosity 1390321).
