1. A jetting device, comprising:
a nozzle with a fluid outlet;
a body including a fluid chamber and a fluid inlet, the fluid inlet in fluid communication with the fluid chamber;
a valve seat disposed in the fluid chamber, the valve seat including an opening in communication with the fluid outlet;
a reciprocating drive pin;
an arm mechanically coupled to the reciprocating drive pin, the arm being urged by a spring to bias the reciprocating drive pin downward;
a movable element terminating at a top portion and having a bottom portion, the top portion being disposed external to the fluid chamber and arranged to be struck by the reciprocating drive pin, the bottom portion being disposed within the fluid chamber and configured to move in a direction towards the valve seat in response to the top portion being struck by the drive pin to cause a droplet of fluid from the fluid chamber to be jetted from the fluid outlet; and
a sealing member contacting the movable element between the top portion and the bottom portion, and the sealing member defining a portion of a boundary of the fluid chamber to seal the fluid chamber.
