Dresser Masoneilan announces the Differential Velocity Device (DVD) low noise trim available as an option on the Camflex valve. The DVD trim, combined with the valve’s rotary globe design, cost-effectively decreases valve throttling noise levels for improved operational efficiency and cost savings which provides a solution for customers aiming to reduce the risk of noise-related injuries and possible equipment damage.
Noise generation is inherent in the valve throttling process. Excessive noise also generates vibration that can severely damage valves, piping and equipment and exposes workers to continuous high noise levels that can risk hearing loss. Penalties for noise regulation violations can be very costly and non-compliance may bring about extensive retrofit mandates and potential operational shutdowns.
The Camflex rotary globe design includes features such as an eccentrically rotating, contoured plug and conical seat that offers excellent throttling control performance and shut-off capabilities. For noise reduction, the DVD trim option decreases noise levels by 5 to 20 decibels over a wide range of service conditions. It is also available in one-inch through 12-inch valve sizes for use in multiple applications and installations.
