LinkedIn +

Liquid handling specialists Pump Engineering has developed an ultra-high-pressure control valve for liquids and gases.

With a tri-axially forged 316L stainless steel body, a solid Stellite inner valve assembly and standard packing material of Torlo with PFA CV rings, the HP-40 control valve has been developed as a solution for high-pressure applications such as automotive, fuel cell and research.

In automotive application, the valve is able to control high pressure liquids and gases such as hydrogen, supercritical CO2 and catalyst injection in high-pressure and ultra-high-pressure reactors.

Additionally, with a pressure rating of 2758 bar it can be used as a Class lV shutoff valve as well as for flow control.

Among the standard features are: a wide range of interchangeable trims, a choice of linear or quick opening trims, ANSI Class lll shutoff for sizes P-1 through P-9, and ANSI Class lV shutoff for sizes K through O.

The HP-40 valve can also include a Titanium Nitride coated Stellite inner valve and a stainless-steel actuator and control hardware for explosion-proof requirements.
