Solenoid valves

Hayward's corrosion resistant, all plastic solenoid valves feature a coil design for improved performance and service life. The special coil rectifies the AC current, used to power the valve, to DC current. This results in a very low coil operating temperature and permits the coil to be rated for 100% continuous duty applications.

The Hydro International Reg-U-Flo(r) Vortex Valve has an S-shaped head discharge curve that reduces storage requirements by up to 30%. With a clear opening up to six times larger than conventional orifice plates, the risk of clogging is reduced. The design is simple, consisting of an intake and an outlet. Flow is directed tangentially into a volute to form a vortex. High peripheral velocities induce an air-filled core with a resulting back pressure that reduces the discharge.

Chainwheels allow operation of valves in high, hard-to-reach locations by means of a pull on a chain. Trumbull Industries offers a universal design that allows a chainwheel to be clamped to a handwheel, or pinned directly to valve stem. All chainwheels are furnished with plated steel attachment hardware for clamping to handwheel. When the wheel is to be pinned to valve stem, a bushing will be provided which can be machined to suit the valve stem dimensions. The bushing and wheel will be pre-drilled for, and supplied with, a stainless steel pin for customer mounting to valve stem.

Pacific Tek now offers a data collection system with its vehicle mounted valve operators. The system uses a windows based tablet computer included with the system to store the information "real time" as operators exercise valves. Whether swivel mounted or rigid mounted, the PT-25 valve operator uses the same twin motor drive.

Henry Pratt designs and manufactures valves for fluid service in the wastewater industry. The company's butterfly valves are used to regulate the flow of fluid in piping systems. The unique seat-in-body design reduces seat failure due to corrosive buildup in the valve and pipeline. Symmetrical lens-shaped disc or flow through disc (on 30" and larger) provide more strength and higher Cv. Nonmetallic bearings prevent galvanic corrosion and provide lower coefficient of friction.
