How to avoid solvent spurting out of the injection port of an injection valve including a VariLoop?

At a certain flow rate/ pressure switching of an injection valve which includes a KNAUER VariLoop leads to solvent spurting out of the injection port.
To avoid the solvent escape reduce the flow rate or best stop the pump.
