Aeroflow High Performance Control Valves
Leslie Controls, a CIRCOR International brand, and a manufacturer of valves for the power generation, industrial, marine and oil and gas markets, features Aeroflow High Performance Control Valves. The Aeroflow line integrates state-of-the-art aerodynamic/hydrodynamic flow design, “smart” valve technology, and a modular design concept to deliver accurate and reliable valves. Aeroflow valves are ideal in combination with desuperheating systems and for power plant, industrial and defense applications.
Aeroflow’s aerodynamic flow control valves provide Cv/size ratios previously not offered in cage guided control valves, while reducing flow turbulence and valve generated noise. The “smart” valve features optional “dead zone” inlet/outlet for accurate, stable pressure measurements. The valves also feature digital positioning. Aeroflow’s shut-off characteristics are safeguarded by Leslie’s “protected” seat design.
Aeroflow valves exceed ANSI Class VI shutoff, and the pressure energized pilot balanced plug provides zero cc/min leak rates to prevent seat erosion and wire drawing. The proven pilot design also eliminates the need for any piston seals to ensure tight shut-off, increasing the valve’s reliability. Additionally, all Aeroflow trim modules are 100% field interchangeable—providing flexibility and value over the life of the installation.
