PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE

THE COMPACT “ HP” Make REDUCING VALVE OFFERS YOU GREATER PERFORMANCE AT A COMPETITIVE PRICE.


Built-In Extra Features :

Featuring a compact, efficient design, the HP Brand valve provides greater flow capacity and performance than most comparable models. Yet is economically priced. Special features range from a streamlined body that minimizes turbulence and pressure drop to erosion-resistant, hardened stainless steel trim

Positive Dead-End Shutoff :

In the ‘HP Brand’ design, all main valves are single seated and normally closed. Initial pressure exerted on the main valve plug. Assisted by a main spring, forces tight closing. Special valves equipped with cobalt based overlays on trim to maintain premium tightness-guaranteed not to be cut by high velocity flow.

Lower First Cost :

Integrally Mounted pilot saves installation and maintenance time-eliminating conventional “hang-on” pilotseasily installed. Internal ports with fewer field connections reduce the number of joints-consequently reducing potential leak points

Pack less Construction :

All main Valves and pilots are built without stuffing boxes. This means it is just freedom from packing and scoring to minimize maintenance costs and downtime because pack less construction is a major contributor to the dynamic qualities. Pack less construction eliminates leakage of gases to the atmosphere preventing costly loss.

Interchangeable Pilots :

HP Brand designs have great advantages of interchangeability for all pilots on all sizes of main valves. Furthermore, the function of any main valve may be changed simply by substituting one type of pilot for another. E.g., the main valve may be converted from a pressure reducing valve to a back pressure regulator or a differential reducing regulator. The Practical advantage of interchangeable pilots is that a user of a number of HP Make Reducing Valve will find it very desirable to be able to convert the reducing valve from one service to another. The value and usefulness of ‘mark one’ is thereby greatly enhanced

High Speed Response :

‘HP’Brand valves are destined for high-speed operation. The downstream pressure is transmitted to the sensing diaphragm without delay, through a connection integral with the valve. This results in a feedback that is faster than any other possible method. Hence and minimal inertia and travel of the moving parts, Response time can be in the millisecond range.

High Stability :

Long guiding surfaces are ground to high finish on all moving parts to assure true alignment and stability. High speed is of little advantage unless coupled with stability and here lies a subtle benefit of our ‘HP’ that few have recognized

Interchangeable Adjusting Springs :

Five adjusting springs cover reduced pressure of 0.5 bar upto 30 Bar. The springs are designed to give best performance and are color coded for error free selection. Set pressure ranges are changed by simply replacing the adjusting spring without removing the pilot assembly and without any special tools.

Valve Sizing :

The table lists the approximate flow co-efficient (Cv) for Reducing valves. It is recommended that valve sizing is confirmed by HP for this, the following minimum information is necessary

Valve Size MM 25 40 50 80 100
Cv Standard 10 20 35 75 105
Special 5 10 15 35 50
  • Fluid : Steam, Air, Gas
  • Inlet Pressure
  • Outlet Pressure
  • Inlet Temperature
  • Capacity : Maximum and Minimum

Reduced Capacity Trim


  • In cases where it is more convenient, on account of the pipe connections to have a valve larger than is necessary to deal with the quantity of steam. We can fit smaller seats so that regulation will be satisfactory
  • To avoid replacing the valve body with another of a different size when a future increase in the flow is expected in relation to that at the start of operation.
  • When the pressure drop across the valve is considerable, it is better to use a larger body for the advantage of rigidity.

PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE OPERATION


A relay or pilot-operated reducing valve for steam services is shown in figure

It comprises

  • The valve body which contains the main valve, the seat and the piston assembly
  • The control head which houses the pilot valve assembly with its associated diaphragm and main adjusting spring.

In this type of reducing valve the main valve is opened by the action of inlet steam on top of the piston which is supplied via the inlet relay port and pilot valve. The pilot valve itself is controlled by the combined action of reduced pressure under the diaphragm and the adjusting spring above it.

The pilot valve opening (and hence the pressure on top of the piston) is controlled by the combined effect of reduced pressure acting on the underside of the diaphragm via the low pressure port. The pilot valve springand the load exerted on the top of the diaphragm by the adjusting spring. By this means, the slightest variation in reduced pressure affects the opening of the pilot valve and hence the pressure on top of the piston.The main valve opening is thus automatically adjusted by the reduced pressure which is accurately maintained despite variations of inlet pressure and/or capacity.
