(BUSINESS WIRE)?Nordson EFD,?a Nordson company (NASDAQ:?NDSN), has recently published a white paper that helps the reader determine the best dispense valve system for specific medical device applications. Some of the common problems encountered with fluid dispensing in the medical device industry are discussed and tips for improving dispense valve performance are offered. The paper, ?10 Essential Questions for Reevaluating Your Medical Device Assembly Process,? is now available on the Nordson EFD website in?English,?Spanish,Portuguese,?Italian,?Chinese, and?Japanese.

?Selecting the correct dispense valve for the specific application and fluid used can save money, increase production, reduce bottlenecks, and improve overall product quality. Medical device manufacturers must meet stringent FDA regulations for quality and product consistency, which makes rigorous process control essential. Fluids for medical device manufacturing can be extremely expensive. It is vital to have quality assembly equipment that generates consistent and accurate results, without fluid contamination, to avoid costly waste,? explained Nordson EFD product line manager, Claude Bergeron.

The paper explains and provides diagrams on topics such as how to pick a valve style and configuration to match the properties of the fluid being dispensed. It looks at taking a system approach to fluid dispensing in CIP (Clean-In-Place) and SIP (Sterilize-In-Place) medical assembly process standards, as well as offers advice on how to optimize dispensing line speed, accuracy, and consistency.
