Valtek Sidewinder Valve

Cavitation Solution Control Valves - Sidewinder

BRAND: Valtek

SideWinder trim prevents cavitation from forming and minimizes hydrodynamic noise in high pressure drop, low flow applications.  Staged pressure drops eliminate cavitation by maintaining pressure above the vapor pressure, so that cavitation never forms. Using the proven DiamondBack advanced pressure drop mechanisms in an axial flow configuration producing precise control in low flow conditions.

Features & Benefits

• Capable of eliminating cavitation in high pressure drop, small flow applications.
• Tolerates Sigma as low as 1.002.
• Eliminates cavitation through staged pressure drop caused by intersecting passageways.
• Uses all known pressure drop mechanisms to reduce pressure including, small passages, turns, mutual impingement, sudden expansion and contraction.
• Capable of tolerating small particulate
• Axial flow design with low clearance flow for precise control at low openings
