The new white paper, titled “Seven Breakthrough Advantages of New Steam Valve Technology,”
Solenoid-based valves that control the flow of steam and hot water are critical components for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users of commercial and industrial laundry, sterilizer, boiler, dishwasher, and food preparation equipment. Until recently, specifiers and users of even the best traditional valve technology had to accept certain limitations — such as relatively restricted throughput, comparatively short valve life, and time-consuming maintenance or replacement.
The white paper discusses how a host of new approaches and technologies, incorporated into a new generation of steam valve products, are dramatically improving performance factors. The paper reports the newest designs combine several features proven to offer significant benefits in traditional valves, such as threaded bonnets, a floating PTFE diaphragm, and a zerominimum operating differential design. They also add innovative new approaches — such as optimized geometry, DC construction, and a lower power coil.
In contrast to established flow control components, these advantages can significantly impact core attributes such as flow rates and product life, according to the paper. As a result, OEM specifiers and end users who choose the right valve can enjoy dramatically more efficient and reliable service than ever before.
