Rotork: Seven-Way Control Valve

Rotork seven way control valveRotork Japan has supplied IQ3 intelligent valve actuators for the automation of what is said to be the world’s first seven-way control valve. The innovative valve, manufactured in Japan by the Aska Corporation, operates under high pressure to control and regulate the flow of chemicals such as polymers, reducing the load on instrumentation in the downstream manufacturing processes.

The unique radial design of the valve eliminates any dead space (no flow) areas which could erode the quality of the media. The design demands a compact actuation solution that is capable of delivering swift and precise valve movements with high operating torques. The high viscosity, temperature and pressure of the media being controlled are further factors that contribute to the challenging demands of the application.

ASCO: Brass and Stainless Steel Spool Valves

ASCO 362 562ASCO has introduced its ASCO 362 and 562 Series of brass and stainless steel spool valves in ¾-inch and 1-inch sizes featuring the industry’s highest flow rates. These new sizes provide design engineers with attractive new solutions for control valve automation in the upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas markets.

The valves’ high flow rates will enable original equipment manufacturers to use smaller piping and purchase lower cost valves while achieving the same flow specifications. Both ¾-inch and 1-inch valves improve flow by 35% over their respective competitive valves.

The 362 and 562 Series valves are available in brass and 316L stainless steel construction for corrosion resistance in harsh environments.

ITT Engineered Valves: Pure-Flo EnviZion Valve

ITT EnviZionITT Corporation is pleased to announce that the Pure-Flo® EnviZion® hygienic diaphragm valve, marketed by its Engineered Valves brand, has passed the ASME BPE 2014 Edition Appendix J testing, reaching the test’s maximum cycle rating at three times the required test pressure.

Established in 1997, the ASME BPE Standard provides the requirements applicable to the design of equipment used in the bioprocessing, pharmaceutical and personal-care products industries. In 2014 the Part SG Sealing Components subcommittee published Appendix J, a set of Standard Process Test Conditions (SPTC) for seal performance including diaphragm valve diaphragms. This test has validated the design integrity and reliability of the EnviZion valve’s live thermal cycle compensation system. With these test results, Biopharm manufacturers can assure diaphragm performance, allowing them to lower contamination risks, develop preventative maintenance programs, and reduce their total cost of ownership.

Flowserve: Valtek DiamondBack

Flowserve Valtek DiamondbackFlowserve Corporation announced the introduction of the Valtek DiamondBack, the control valve industry's most technologically advanced anti-cavitation trim design to date for severe service applications.

DiamondBack enables control valve users to eliminate high-pressure drop cavitation damage and the associated noise. In addition, the DiamondBack design can be produced in a range of materials, including tungsten carbide, effectively mitigating the effects of erosion. Providing improved reliability and uptime with reduced operating and maintenance costs, DiamondBack also delivers up to 30% higher flow than comparable multi-stage valve trim with the same pressure drop. In some applications, this results in a smaller and lighter package than other designs.
