Pinch Tubes

Precision pinch tube valves for the controlled dispensing of most fluids and adhesives. Fluid is fed under pressure to the polyethylene or polyurethane tube inside the valve. This is "pinched" closed and opens up when dispensing. The tube is designed to last long periods and replacements are supplied in packs of 10. The benefit of these valves is that there is no potential of curable adhesives damaging the valve as the tube is just changed. Ideal for reactive adhesives and two part epoxies.
Pinch tube dispensing valve

Pinch valves are ideal for dispensing most low to medium viscosity fluids. Using disposable pinch tubes eliminates the need for maintenance and cleaning. Low cost, quick to setup and easy to use. Whether dispensing by hand control or on a production line, pinch valves will handle cyanoacrylates, UV cure, anaerobic, inks, paints, solvents, primers and activators.

The TS1212 is an air operated valve that connects to a timed dispenser (such as the TS250) and can be set to make repeat deposits by foot pedal or when linked to a PLC as part of an automated assembly process. The TS1201 is a manual pen valve that dispenses as long as the lever is pressed. Both valves can take a feed of liquid direct from syringe barrels, cartridge reservoirs or pressure pots.

Tubes are available from stock for all pinch tube valves. Use clear for Cyanoacrylates and most fluids, use black for UV cure adhesives. This page also contains spares replacement parts for the TS1212 and TS1201 pinch tube valves.
