Professional Tools

As product designers working with Primalec, we developed, engineered and prototyped the threaded injector gun and bellows capsule packaging system as part of their range of professional, leak detection tools and servicing equipment for the automotive and commercial air conditioning markets.

As the development program progressed, we built a series of working units using a combination of rapid prototyping and precision machined components, using a variety of engineering plastics, to verify our calculations regarding the strength and ease of use of various injector concepts and thread designs. We also organised the manufacture of trial quantities of blow moulded components in materials suitable to contain the chemicals that were to be dispensed.

The threaded nozzle/valve can be fitted to a variety of connectors and hoses to suit many applications and the capsules can be sold containing different chemicals for lubrication, A/C booster, UV leak detector etc.

The pre-filled capsules have a non-return valve, so there is no mess when itís being connected and once it is empty, the capsule remains collapsed, for compact, environmentally friendly disposal.

For final mass production and assembly, we introduced Primalec to companies specialising in small batch quantity, injection and blow mouldings and supplied all the engineering drawings and 3D CAD tooling information to these manufacturers.

Tooling and components manufactured in UK and South Africa.
