Tecnoideal produces a complete range of Solvent Dispensers to obtain a safe, reliable, and quick solvent bonding in the assembly of medical devices such as: blood lines, infusion and transfusion sets, bags, filters, oxygenators, heat exchangers, reservoirs, stopcocks and many others customized devices. Our DS Solvent Dispensers are designed to work with the most used types of medical grade solvents (like cyclohexanone, Tetrahydrofuran, Methylethylketone, etc).
HOW SOLVENT DISPENSERS WORK
Solvent is continuously recirculated through dispensing bushes by means of an electric pumping system.
The dispensing bush is the “heart” of the dispenser. Its special shape allows the dispensing of solvent on the internal or external surface of soft and rigid drip chambers, needles and various types of connectors and components.
BENEFITS OF DS Dispensers over traditional methods
Easier and quicker solvent dispensing than any other traditional method or procedure: solvent is dispensed by just inserting the tubing or component into the relevant bushing and immediately pulling it back for assembly operation. According to our customers experience, dispensing times can be reduced by 10% to 40%.
Reproducible bonding: when the tubing (or component) is pushed into the bushing, a dead stop determines the right dispensing length and a film of solvent is accurately and uniformly dispensed all around the surface of the tubing (or component).
Operator training is minimal: the dispensing system guarantees reproducible solvent quantities and fail safe operation.
No waste of solvent and clean dispensing: the closed configuration of the dispenser reduces the evaporation of solvent in the working area. Solvent is dispensed only where necessary, thus avoiding solvent excess on assembled parts. A protective ring (or cap) is provided to close dispensing area, and to prevent release of solvent when dispenser is not in use. A solvent usage test made by some of our customers has shown a 60% reduction in solvent use (test was made for one month, comparing the DS2 model with traditional sponge and dish method).</li>
Minimum environmental contamination: the optional Vapour Conveyor System cuts off the solvent vapour contaminating the working environment.
Flow adjustment: by just rotating the dispensing bushing in its housing or changing an internal dispensing pin, it is possible to slightly increase or decrease the flow of the solvent.
Safe, noiseless and practical configuration: power supply from the transformer to the dispenser is low voltage and with a solvent-resistant electrical cable.
Bench-top configuration gives the customer the possibility to quickly and easily move the solvent dispensers to wherever they are needed.
Each solvent dispenser is designed basing on customer’s needs. We manufacture dedicated bushings for every different diameter and shape of tubing or component. If necessary, bushings can be easily and quickly changed to assemble different types of tubes or components.
Our technical team is available to assist our customers in the choice of the solvent dispenser version most fitting their production needs.Download the brochure
