Intertronics has launched the latest generation of dispensing components, designed and manufactured to compete – and be compatible – with other leading brands.
Their next day delivery and economical purchase price are expected to attract widespread interest from engineers and buyers.
According to Intertronics, the QuantX range has been developed by Intertronics partner Fisnar in response to market demands for a premium, compatible product, to which Intertronics adds fast delivery, competitive pricing and expert technical advice. The components deliver maximum dispense quality, efficiency and economy, giving optimised yields and minimum material waste.
Intertronics has produced a syringe barrels range to cover all commonly used sizes from 3cc to 55cc, including amber and black variants for protection of light sensitive materials. It says they are manufactured from premium grade polypropylene under stringent conditions to ensure minimal resistance and parallel uniformity. This, in turn, provides the highest possible accuracy and repeatability when dispensing dots, lines or doses. Barrels feature an industry-standard Luer lock fitting.
The QuantX range also comprises two types of ‘Evenpress’ pistons – designed to apply even pressure and seal fluids and fumes in the barrel. QuantX barrel adapter assemblies have been designed to provide a convenient quick connect to the dispensing controller, and an easy fit and a good seal to the barrel.
All components are packaged in a dust-free environment in an anti-static bag in a box, and batch numbered to help maintain traceability. Only virgin raw materials are used in order to ensure consistency, and no silicone, chlorides or amides are used in moulding or other production processes.
QuantX Evaluation Packs are available on request at www.intertronics.co.uk/sample-kit or by calling 01865 842842.
QuantX premium dispensing components are part of Intertronics’ range of bonding and protective materials and associated dispensing and curing equipment.
