Improve your fluid dispensing process
Need to apply controlled amounts of adhesives, lubricants and other fluids? Nordson EFD’s precision dispensing systems improve process control and increase yields through fast, controlled application of adhesives, lubricants, silicones and other fluids used in medical device assembly.
Products include benchtop dispensers that take the guesswork out of manual assembly processes; precision dispense valves that reduce maintenance and downtime on automated production lines; tabletop robots for cost-effective automation; and the highest quality syringe barrels, cartridges and dispensing tips in the industry.
Value Plastics introduces the BPL Series of tubing connectors, a new alternative to luer fittings.
The luer is a standard tubing connector prevalent in medical devices largely due to its ease of use and affordable nature. Unfortunately, however, the common use of this standard design has resulted in the risk of tubing misconnections within healthcare environments. Alternatives to these fittings have therefore begun to increase in popularity.
The BPL Series of connectors incorporates a quarter-turn design that is commonly used in blood pressure applications – particularly in blood pressure cuffs. Features such as Value Plastics’ patented 10-point grip coupled with the BPL’s winged male fitting provide for top-of-the-line ergonomics, and the snap-on connection presents the end user with confidence that a secure fit has been made. These attributes can be crucial in healthcare environments due to hindrances such as dark rooms, baggy rubber gloves, and the potential for situations that don’t allow time for fumbling.

Value Plastics introduces a technologically advanced series of ports for the single-use bags used to transfer media and drug compounds in the biopharmaceutical industry.
Value Plastics’ new high tech series of bag ports offers a variety of benefits new to the biopharmaceutical industry through
a combination of Value Pharma™ resin and a unique design. Value Pharma™ resin
holds credentials that many manufacturers deem fundamental, such as animal
derivative free qualification, USP Class VI certification, and the guarantee of
heat sealing and conformance with polyethylene bags. The resin then goes even
further to provide a strong, 24-hour resistance to alcohol stress cracking.
Their unique design sets these new ports apart from existing solutions.
They not only conform with frequently utilized tubing sizes from 1/8" (3.2 mm) to 1" (25.4 mm), but they are
also designed to ASME and BPE ferrule specifications, allowing them to work with leading industry fittings, filters and other devices. However, the most notable of the bag ports’ specifications are those that are new to the industry – the parabolic lead and the alignment ribs. These two features, respectively, reduce the amount of time it takes to drain a bag by 24 percent and improve flow dynamics through the port.
