Extreme Temperature Valves
The Extreme Temperature Extension provides a means to move the packing area (stuffing box) away from the hot or cold zone of a valve. Fins are provided around the packing area to dissipate heat or cold with this option.
Size range. Extreme temperature extensions are available for all NPT valves.
Materials and features. Standard packing is Grafoil and Teflon. Nonrotating tip stems prevent galling at the seats and minimize torque requirements for positive shut off.
When ordering, simply add the suffix "-HT" or "LT" to the standard valve catalog number (example: 15F-11NFA-HT).
Temperature ratings of valves with this option, for low temperature (-LT) is -423°F (-252°C) and for high temperature (-HT) is 1200°F (649°C)
Micro Control Metering Valves
The Micro Control Metering Valve assembly is available for 1/8", 1/4" NPT valves in this section. This unique stem design operates on the principle of a right-hand threaded component operating in an opposite direction of motion to a left-hand threaded component.
As the pitch sizes of these threads are different from each other, a very fine and precise stem travel is made possible. This provides exceptional control that is not possible with ordinary fine pitched stem designs.
Each complete revolution of the stem provides 0.005" stem travel. The vernier indicator allows readings in increments of one-tenth of a revolution (0.0005" stem travel).
The non-rotating lower section stem is ground to a 9 degree included angle to insure maximum control. While this valve may be turned to the fully off (closed) position, it is always preferable to provide a separate on-off valve in the system to protect the precise control of the metering valve.
When ordering, simply specify the valve catalog number from the valve series and add the suffix "-V" (example: 15F-11NFB-V)
A large number of the valves and fittings shown within this catalog section are frequently furnished in special materials to meet the requirements of specific applications. One of the most commonly requested "special" materials is Hastelloy C-276.
Tubing collars and glands for High Pressure coned-and-threaded connections are "non-wetted" parts which do not normally come into contact with the fluid or gas. Thus these items are supplied in 316 stainless steel unless otherwise specified.
Packing material in all special material valves is Teflon unless otherwise specified.
Other materials. In addition to Hastelloy C-276, valves and fittings can be furnished in Monel, Inconel and titanium. Consult factory for price and delivery.
