Working with a tough application environment? We have a hot melt option for our Series 300 Check Valves
For tough applications working with torque, vibration, high heat, etc., we offer a hot melt option for our popular Series 300 Modular Check Valves.


What is a hot melt and why is it available for this series?

hot_melt1As shown above, Series 300 valves are designed to be modular with mix and match end fitting options. Once fully assembled, it looks like you can easily twist them off and back together again, but they are not designed to come apart. All of our Series 300 valves include a positive latch system, which resists un-twisting. However, in certain high-stress application environments or if tampering is a concern, an additional preventive measure may be necessary. Our solution is a hot melt option. This technique involves using special tooling during assembly to bond the end fittings together (pictured). The hot melt fills the cavities of an assembled Series 300 valve to ensure it is tamper-resistant and able to withstand tough environments.

For questions or more information about the hot melt option, talk to a Product & Application Specialist at 1-800-338-0404 or sales@smartproducts.com.
