Lincoln measuring valves or positive displacement valves as they are also known are available from JSG Industrial Systems . They have been specially designed to be used with PowerMaster or PileDriver pumping systems and work by dispensing accurate volumes of medium-to-high viscosity fluids. These fluids include adhesives, lubricants, plastisols and sealants.
The design of these measuring valves incorporates positive-displacement pistons and adjustable piston stops. They are able to be mounted either vertically or horizontally and have only one moving part. In comparison with other measuring systems, for example timed flow measurement, these devices display superior accuracy, reliability and repeatability. They also have the capacity to fine tune and lock in output volumes as well as having longer component lives.
Lincoln recommends using their product in the following applications:
- Product packaging - eg. Pumping material from a drum to fill paper cartridges
- Process filling - eg. Vinyl plastisol into product moulds
- Product filling - eg. Measuring fluid into gear boxes
