New Sauer standard for safety valves

sauer-april-5They make a considerable contribution to safe operation: Safety valves have to defy high temperatures, pressure fluctuations and vibrations while reacting precisely – requirements that mass-produced valves often do not satisfy sufficiently.

Control Pinch Valves and their Application

Controlled Processing of Product Flows

In a fully opened position, the flow of a processing product is in direct line with the critical elastomer sleeve, which maintains a direct control over the flow of a liquid, fluid or material. The Control Pinch Valve has a form constructed of a casing, flanged or screw type ends and the unique elastomer sleeve, the controlling factor of this variety of valve. This innovative valve has a designed construction, making it able to operate without damaging cavitations for specified conditions. The opening and closing of the valve whether a screw type or flange, is either by manual means or compressed air pressure fed into the casing.

Manual operated Pinch Valves and Innovative Parts

Innovation in Design and Construction

 

A Manual operated Pinch Valve is an innovative type of valve, by its design and construction simplicity. However, it has established a reputation for extremely high and effective performances in applications such as slurries, liquids and suspended solids, in comparison to other valve varieties. The valve consists of three basic parts, only one of which has any direct contact with a processing product. It provides a sealing process by using an elastomer sleeve, situated inside the valve casing. The remaining integral part of the valve, are flanging located at either end of the casing.

Liquid pumps designed for oil, water and chemicals

Autoclave Engineers has designed a group of air-driven, positive-displacement, high-pressure liquid pumps for service with oil, water and chemicals.

The ASL Series is available in a variety of drive ratios and includes single and double air-drive designs that are capable of up to 60,000psi (4135 bar).

Manual options are available in the ACHL Series pump line and AHL Series double-acting, double air-drive pumps are designed for a combination of high flow and high pressure.

Features include: pressure maintained without energy consumption; requires no lubrication; and external spool valve for easy maintenance.

Applications include: pressure-test stands - stationary and mobile; component and vessel testing; burst testing; umbilical testing; lubrication; bolt tensioning; hydraulic-control panels; chemical injection; and hydrostatic testing.

MCP concept addresses hard-soft contact needs

A concept for the sustained assessment of sliding surfaces based on Merkel Counter Surface Parameters (MCPs) takes into account the specific requirements involved in hard-soft contacts.

Seal counterfaces have usually been assessed on the basis of parameters for metal-to-metal contacts.

However, as a piston and rod seal in hydraulic systems always involves a hard-soft contact, the result obtained for counter-surface assessment in terms of abrasivity, long-term behaviour and oil deposits provides restricted information.

This is leading to greater friction and more rapid wear of the sealing elements in tribological systems.

With MCPs, surface profiles are registered according to the tried-and-tested contact-stylus process.
