New Loctite® Benchtop Peristaltic Dispenser Offers Highly Precise Dispensing

Henkel Corporation has introduced the Loctite® Benchtop Peristaltic Dispenser, a reliable volumetric dispense system for single component, low viscosity fluids. Designed for highly precise dispensing applications that require both dot to dot or continuous bead repeatability, this equipment transfers adhesives directly from the bottle to the hand held dispense valve.

Rocky Hill, Conn. -- November 8, 2005.... Henkel Corporation has introduced the Loctite® Benchtop Peristaltic Dispenser, a reliable volumetric dispense system for single component, low viscosity fluids. Designed for highly precise dispensing applications that require both dot to dot or continuous bead repeatability, this equipment transfers adhesives directly from the bottle to the hand held dispense valve.

The Loctite® Benchtop Peristaltic Dispenser is electromechanically operated and uses pressure from a mechanical rotor rather than a pneumatic air source to move adhesives or solvents with viscosities up to 5000 cPs. This air-free dispensing method essentially eliminates the problem of premature curing with air/ moisture sensitive products.

The rotor can be operated in forward or reverse. The instant reverse feature shuts off liquid flow and prevents dripping post-dispense. The Loctite® Benchtop Peristaltic Dispenser can be used as a manual or semi-automatic workstation in continuous or timed dispense mode. It can dispense drops as small as 0.001 ml, or a continuous bead at a maximum rate of 6 ml/minute. A simple and convenient load mechanism also makes tubing replacement quick and easy.
