Product Announcement from Techcon Systems, Inc.
Techcon Systems' patented Disposable Material Path (DMP) valve contains a disposable feed screw for easy maintenance and reliable dispensing. With a feed screw made of Delrin®, the valve is designed for use with two-compound and abrasive materials. The DMP valve has a hinged doorway in the front that opens easily so the disposable auger can be removed, disposed of, and replaced within seconds while the line is still in operation. No cleaning or refurbishment of the valve is required.
The DMP is the perfect valve for applications where removing the valve for cleaning is inconvenient and costly. With the ability to remove and replace the disposable auger, the valve maintains its dispensing accuracy over a greater period of time. And, with less material buildup to reduce wear-and-tear on the motor, the valve's usable lifetime is dramatically increased.
