Mastip Open Valve Tips with Clip-On Cap Insulators
Mastip’s Open Valve Tip range has been extended and redesigned to accommodate insulator caps while providing precise valve pin guidance to reduce wear and tear at the gate.
Redesigned to enable cap insulators to clip-on, the open valve tips in G1 and G5 range will have an identifiable groove at the tip end to retain the cap. A new range of Guided Valve (GV) tips, the GVG5, has been developed for precise valve pin alignment to extend production life of the gate.
The GVG5 tip is supplied as a pre-assembled Open Nut option to improve cylindrical gate shut-off.
A hard wearing Valve Bush Nut with cylindrical gate shut-off can also be supplied with a GVG5

When should Cap Insulators be used?
Insulation caps provide the advantage of isolating the gate well from residence sensitive polymers like PC. This ensures superior part quality and consistency while providing superior thermal performance by insulating the tip from cooling polymers.
Cap insulators are ideal for applications with frequent colour changes or those processing sensitive materials that require precise cavity-to-cavity conformity and exceptional surface quality.
Insulating caps can be fitted to both standard OVG1 and GVG5 tips with open nuts.
