Vacuum
Control
Using Vacuum to Make Deposits of Watery-Thin Fluids
The Ultra 1400 vacuum control allows low viscosity fluids, even water, to be consistently dispensed
without dripping between cycles. A vacuum is exerted above the fluid in the barrel to prevent
dripping. For medium to high viscosity fluids, the vacuum should be shut off.
If you are dispensing watery solvents, cyanoacrylates or anaerobics, request the blue LV Barrier™
piston and follow these steps to fill the syringe barrel and set the vacuum control.
1.
Twist an orange tip cap onto an empty syringe barrel and pour your fluid in. Insert the blue LV
Barrier piston. Allow an air gap between piston and fluid as shown. (If you are using the
SmoothFlow™ piston, push the white piston down until it comes in contact with the fluid.)
2.
Attach the syringe to the EFD adapter assembly.
3.
Snap the safety clip tightly closed to prevent any dripping.
4.
Remove the tip cap and attach a precision dispense tip.
5.
Set air pressure at 2 psi (0.1 bar).
6.
Press the Steady button
7.
With the syringe barrel pointing down over a container, unsnap the safety clip.
Press and hold the foot pedal to fill the tip.
8.
As a drop begins to form at the end of the tip, slowly turn the vacuum
regulator knob counter-clockwise to stop the drip. Wipe the tip and adjust
vacuum as necessary.
9.
Press the Steady button again to return to Timed mode.

10. Rest the tip on the Dot Standards sheet. Press the foot pedal and release. Check the dot size.
Increase or decrease by adjusting pressure or time as needed.
Helpful Hint
For low viscosity fluids,
use an EFD filter trap
(#1000FLT-Y). This filter
trap will impede the
flow should the liquid
be sucked back
towards the dispenser.

Filling the
Syringe
Barrel
Syringe Barrel Filling Techniques
Caution: Do not completely fill syringe barrels.
The optimum fill is a maximum 2/3 of the
barrel capacity and 1/2 of the barrel capacity
when using the EFD blue LV Barrier piston.
For best results, we strongly recommend that
you use a piston as part of your dispensing
system. The white EFD SmoothFlow piston is
appropriate for most fluids and has several
advantages.
•
First, vacuum adjustment is less sensitive.
•
Second, the piston prevents fumes from
the fluid being exhausted into the work
environment.
•
Third, the piston prevents fluid backflow
into the dispenser if the syringe barrel
is inadvertently turned upside down.
•
Fourth, the piston makes it easy and
safe to change tips without dripping.
Remember
For best results, EFD strongly recommends the use of
a piston as part of your dispensing system.
Fumes cannot escape.
No air gap when
using the
SmoothFlow
piston.
SmoothFlow piston
prevents fluid backflow.
If you choose to not use a piston when dispensing
thin fluids, remember these important points.
Open
Do not tip the barrel
upside down or lay flat.
This will cause the liquid
to run into the dispenser.
Closed
When changing tips
or attaching a tip cap,
snap the safety clip
completely closed to
prevent any dripping
or bubbling.
For watery solvents and cyanoacrylates, request the blue EFD LV Barrier piston,
available in 3cc and 10cc sizes. If you are dispensing an RTV silicone and find that
the piston bounces and causes stringing, request the EFD orange, flat wall piston.
Filling procedure for pourable
low and medium viscosity fluids
If the fluid you are dispensing is pourable, take the syringe barrel, twist on an orange
tip cap and pour your fluid in. Insert a white SmoothFlow piston and carefully press
down until it contacts the fluid. The syringe barrel is now ready for use.

Filling procedure for thick fluids
If your fluid is thick or non-leveling, you can spoon it into the syringe barrel with a
spatula. Or, if the fluid comes packed in a 1/10 gallon (300 ml) cartridge, try loading
the barrel with a caulking gun. Then, press the SmoothFlow piston to move the fluid
to the bottom of the syringe barrel and remove trapped air.
Trapped air in thick fluids can lead to drooling and oozing. Also, repetitive air cycles
can bore tunnels through non-leveling fluids, causing spitting and inconsistent
deposits. The SmoothFlow piston eliminates these problems. It prevents tunneling by
providing a barrier to the pulsed-air cycles. And it prevents oozing by responding to
the pressure of trapped air with a slight suck-back movement after the dispense cycle.

Loaders
Barrel Loading Alternatives
EFD offers productive alternatives to traditional syringe barrel loading methods. Here are a few
suggestions that can help keep your work area clean, save time and reduce the chance of entrapped air
in the fluid.
1. You could use the EFD #920BL barrel loader. Pack the fluid into the 12 ounce cartridge as shown.
Then place the pre-filled cartridge into the barrel loader. Using air pressure, the barrel loader fills the
syringe barrel (with a piston installed) from the bottom up.
If the fluid comes packed in a 1/10 gallon (300 ml) caulking type cartridge, use the EFD #940BL
barrel loader.
2. For fast, accurate volumetric filling, the 8000BF Barrel Filling Station can be used with any pressure
reservoir or cartridge. Recommended for high production barrel filling.
3. If you receive frozen epoxies or other fluids in medical type syringes with a manual plunger, request
the EFD luer-to-luer fitting #2160 to transfer the material.
Please contact an EFD Fluid Application Specialist for additional assistance.

Troubleshoot
If you encounter a problem that you cannot readily solve, call EFD.
Trouble
Possible cause and correction
No power
Be sure that there is power at the wall receptacle. Otherwise, replace fuse
(specify EFD part #7111) to power supply.
Inconsistent dots
1. Check dispensing tip, syringe barrel and material for possible clogging.
2. Check dispenser air pressure display to be sure air pressure is not varying.
If needed, use the filter regulator (EFD part #2000F755).
3. Air bubbles in the material can cause inconsistency. For best results, remove
all air bubbles.
Timer seems
inoperative
Material suck-back
Check to be sure you are not in Steady mode.
Note: The EFD timer is very reliable. Any failure will be total, so that no
inconsistency is possible. Most questions regarding the timer are resolved by
simply turning Steady mode off.
1. Use a SmoothFlow piston or LV Barrier to prevent material being drawn into
the dispenser.
2. Another option is to order the filter trap accessory, which prevents fluid from
leaking into the dispenser. Order EFD part #1000FLT-Y.
3. If suck-back occurs, attach an empty barrel, put in Steady mode, place the
barrel in a cup, then press the foot pedal to expel the fluid.
4. If the problem cannot be corrected, contact an EFD Fluid Application Specialist
for assistance.
Dispensers can be returned to EFD for repair.
Voltage initiate
does not function.

Check to see that the voltage is between 5 and 24 VDC and the current does
not exceed 250mA.

Hints
Helpful Hints
1. There are three core variables to the Ultra 1400 dispenser: time, pressure and vacuum. Adjust just
one of these at a time, in small increments, to achieve the correct deposit.
2. Another variable is tip size. Choose the right tip for the deposit type. Remember, smaller tips require
more pressure and more time. Try different tips without changing the time or pressure settings and
observe the results.
3. Tapered tips reduce the amount of air pressure needed to dispense thick materials. They also help
prevent drooling at the end of a dispense cycle.
4. To ensure smooth fluid flow and to make consistent deposits, keep the dispense tip at a 45° angle
to the work surface.
5. Use EFD SmoothFlow pistons to make barrel loading, dispensing and handling cleaner, safer and
more accurate. Caution: If you dispense watery fluids and choose not to use EFD pistons, do not
increase vacuum pressure rapidly and do not tip the barrel. Vacuum may pull fluid into the adapter
hose, or if the syringe barrel is tipped, fluid may flow back into the dispenser.
6. Always use new EFD syringe barrels and tips. Carefully dispose of after use. This procedure ensures
maximum cleanliness, prevents contamination and provides proper safety.
7. Do not completely fill the syringe barrel. For most fluids, optimum fill is a maximum 2/3 of the barrel
capacity. For cyanoacrylates or watery fluids, optimum fill is 1/2 of the barrel capacity.
Suggestions on Settings
1. To reduce air pressure, turn the knob counterclockwise until the display reads at a lower-than-needed
pressure setting. Then turn clockwise to increase pressure until you reach the correct setting.
2. Avoid high pressure settings with very short time settings (example: 80 psi; 5.5 bar at less than
0.01 seconds). The ideal setup matches air pressure and tip size to create a “workable” flow rate –
no splashing, but not too slow either – with a time setting that is not extremely low.
3. With any fluid, always give the air pressure time to do its job. Moderate time and pressure provides
the best results since dispensing pressure remains at its peak for a longer period of time.
4. Longer dispense time settings generally provide the highest accuracy. However, in the interest of costeffective production, do not use excessively long dispense time settings. Experiment to find what
works best for your application.

Tools
9 pin connector assembly
Allows easy connection to the Ultra 1400 dispenser for external control.
One end has a 9 pin male DIN connector; opposite end connects to
external devices. Specify EFD part #7154.
Five-micron regulator
Required for production areas where clean, dry filtered factory air is not
available, or to stabilize plant air supply for more consistent deposits.
Specify EFD part #2000F755.
For dispensing cyanoacrylates, order the regulator with a coalescing filter
that removes liquid aerosols from the air supply (EFD part #2000F756).
Filter muffler
exhaust / vacuum
Attaches to the Ultra 1400 exhaust port and filters output air to meet
Fed 209-B (0.5 micron particulates). Designed for use in cleanroom
environments. Specify EFD part #2170FT.
Finger switch
Replaces foot pedal for applications where operators prefer
to dispense by hand. Specify EFD part #2015FS.
