Regent pneumatic angle seat valve is a type of industrial valve that uses compressed air to control the flow of fluids, typically liquids or gases. It is called an "angle seat" valve because of the 90-degree angle between the valve body and the actuating mechanism, which distinguishes it from other types of valves.
Key features and components of a pneumatic angle seat valve:
Valve Body: The valve body is usually made of stainless steel or other corrosion-resistant materials. It houses the internal components of the valve and provides the connection points for the fluid pipeline.
Valve Seat: The valve seat is the sealing surface inside the valve where the valve plug or piston makes contact when the valve is closed. It ensures a tight shut-off to prevent fluid leakage.
Valve Plug or Piston: The valve plug or piston is the movable component that controls the flow of fluid through the valve. When actuated by compressed air, it moves either upwards or downwards to open or close the valve.
Actuator: The actuator is the pneumatic device responsible for operating the valve. It typically consists of a piston or diaphragm that moves in response to changes in air pressure. The actuator is connected to the valve plug or piston and controls its movement.
Air Ports: Pneumatic angle seat valves have two air ports - one for supplying compressed air to the actuator to open the valve and another for supplying compressed air to close the valve. By controlling the flow of compressed air to the actuator, the valve can be opened, closed, or modulated to achieve the desired flow rate.
Advantages of pneumatic angle seat valves:
Fast Response: Pneumatic actuators offer quick response times, allowing for rapid opening and closing of the valve, making them suitable for applications requiring fast actuation.
Versatility: These valves can handle a wide range of fluids, including corrosive or abrasive media, and are used in various industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, water treatment, and chemical processing.
Self-Draining: Many angle seat valves are designed with a self-draining feature, making them suitable for applications where cleanliness and sanitation are crucial.
Simple Design: The design of pneumatic angle seat valves is relatively simple, making them easy to maintain and repair.
Fail-Safe Operation: In the event of a loss of compressed air or power, some pneumatic angle seat valves are designed to fail in the closed position, providing an added safety feature.
Pneumatic angle seat valves are commonly used in processes that require precise control over the flow of fluids, such as in filling applications, steam control systems, and various automated processes where remote actuation is essential. The choice of valve size, material, and actuator type depends on the specific application and the characteristics of the fluid being controlled.
