KLINGER® piston valves
Piston valves stand for excellent industry performance with their minimum maintenance requirements and production savings. KLINGER piston valves are characterized by a system of seals and rings that ensures tightness to atmosphere and thus prevents environmental contamination.
KLINGER has been at the forefront of piston valve technology since 1922. Featuring different types of connections – flanged, threaded, butt and socket weld ends – and both DIN and ANSI-compliant standards, KLINGER piston valves complete the wide range of KLINGER’s industrial valves.
Facts Piston valves
- Excellent control characteristics
- Low maintenance
- Suitable for steam condensate-alternating operations as well as for temperature shock operations
- No sealing surface erosion
- Revisable without removal from pipe system
Gate valves are primarily used to enable or prevent a fluid medium to flow (i.e. ON / OFF control). A fully open gate valve results in no obstruction to the flow path, thus allowing for very low friction losses.
Facts Gate Valves
- Threaded and flanged gate valve designs
- Depending on gate valve design, suitable for water and liquids with abrasive particles, saturated steam, oil, air and gas
- Non-rising stem
- Flanged gate valve features slider vulcanized with rubber to guarantee tight shut-off
Globe valves are primarily found in fluid regulation applications. Their (semi-) spherical form is comprised of two body halves, separated by an internal baffle. Shutting the globe valve is achieved by means of a disk, which screws into the seat of the battle by means of a handwheel or actuation. As opposed to ball valves, the flow of the medium is not direct and in one direction, instead the fluid enters and rises inside of the body of the valve prior to exiting on the other side.
Facts Globe Valves
- Wide range of body materials, including cast iron, ductile cast iron, SG-iron steel, and stainless steel
- Flanged and threaded globe valve designs
- Depending on product type, suitable for a wide range of applications and media, maintenance-free
- Cold and hot water, steam, nitrogen oxides, gas, air, oil, chemicals and various acids
Check valves are primarily used to fully close the passage of a circulating (gaseous or fluid) medium in one direction and to simultaneously allow free passage in the other direction. As two-port valves, they feature two openings in the body, one by which the fluid can enter, and one by which it can leave.
Facts Check Valves
- Threaded, flanged or closable check valves designs
- Depending on the check valve design: suitable for water, non-aggressive liquids and gases, steam, condensate
- Depending on the check valve: universal, horizontal or vertical mounting
Knife gate valves
Knife gate valves are characterized by an interior blade that rises and falls by means of a shank. This operating principle allows it to efficiently “cut” the fluid. Knife gate valves are ideal for systems that transport fluids with a high solids content, which are difficult or impossible to close by means of conventional valves.
Facts Knife Gate Valves
- Cast iron, cast stainless steel, and ductile iron knife gate valve models
- Suitable for up to 10 bar, maximum temperature 100 °C
- Threaded, flanged, between flanges and models with weld ends
KLINGER plug valves operate with the same principle used by ball valves. They feature cylindrical or conical “plugs” with one or more hollow passageways. Rotating these plugs inside the valve body allows the operator to control the flow of the medium through the valve. KLINGER plug valves are typically used for opening / closing functions as well as for flow deviation, which is due to their multiport configuration capabilities. Amongst others, plug valves can be used for fluids with suspended solids.
Facts Plug Valves
- Flanged, threaded, multi-way plug valve models
Diaphragm / Pinch valves
Diaphragm valves are characterized by a straight passage design, and are typically used with corrosive or abrasive fluids. This valve type may be either coated or feature a liner inside the body. Combined with the diaphragm, they are capable of performing their intended function with minimal wear.
Pinch valves are typically used in applications where the media need to be completely isolated from internal valve parts. The sleeve holds the flow medium, and subsequently isolates it from the environment, thus significantly reducing contamination. Pinch valves are found in abrasive and corrosive applications, slurries or processes with entrained solids. The latter is due to the fact that the flexible rubber sleeve is capable of closing drop-tight around the solids.
Facts Diaphragm / Pinch Valves
- Suitable for corrosive and abrasive fluids
- Minimal wear
Safety valves and discs
Safety valves or relief valves are designed to relieve pressure when a fluid exceeds a pre-set limit. Their function is to counter a possible rupture of the protected system or the failure of a device or pipeline as a result of excessive pressure.
Facts Safety Valves and Discs
- Fail-safe, pressure-relief function
Bellow seal valves
Bellow valves feature a metal bellows, usually cylindrical in shape, to protect against stem leakage. Functioning like a vertical diaphragm, it seals with the valve stem and the valve body itself. This type of valve is used to minimize air pollution, losses in production, problems in the process and energy losses.
Facts Bellow Seal Valves
- Used in combination with heat transfer media, vacuum, highly hazardous or costly fluids
A control valve is used to manage the flow of a fluid by varying the flow passage volume. As a consequence, variables such as the pressure, temperature and fluid level can be directly controlled. KLINGER offers control valves that utilize the same wear parts as ball valves as well as segment control valves suitable for flow and pressure control.
Facts Control Valves
- Control valve portfolio includes both control valves and segment control valves
- Wide control range
- Depending on control valve model, regulation of steam, liquids (in combination with KLINGER ball valves) and slurry, powder and paper pulp
Actuators use electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic energy to open and close elements of a valve. KLINGER offers a wide range of actuators as well as actuator accessories, including 90° electrical actuators, pneumatic actuators (90°, 120°, 180°), actuators for diaphragm valves, butterfly, solenoid and ball valves as well as position indicators, silencers and switch boxes.
