Unique sealing designs in WEY are designed specifically for your process and operate with high performance.
Manufactured with high quality standards, the WEY knife valve has proven itself over time with unique design.
It guarantees a longer usage time against the leaks arising from various reasons in comparison with its rivals.
1) Fulfilling the sealing function, the seal performs tightly with the lateral face of the knife smoothened by being processed. The fact that the lateral face of the knife is processed means more durable seal. Mechanically asserted to the body, the seal is also protected against disassembly problem.
2) Guide bearings of the knife prevent the knife from vibrating during on-off operation, thus ensuring noiseless operation. In addition, this design guarantees double-sided sealing in all pressure grades and all seal types.
3) During the valve closing process, it cleans itself by glancing off accumulated residual materials due to the sharpened knifepoint.
4) During closure, it pushes the accumulated residues downward by means of the special blade geometry and puts out them through the extended discharge corners, thus preventing jamming and sticking.
5) The traditional seal box is removed with its unique Transverse Seal structure. Seal types selected specially for the process guarantees impermeability in certain conditions. Seal types are arranged to provide superior performance against leakage and abrasion under normal conditions.
6) The distance between the transverse seal and the port has been minimized. This prevents particles from accumulating between the body and the knife, thus preventing the blade from being jammed/stuck. This means the selection of the actuator with lower capacity and lower torque requirements.
7) It is possible to eliminate the leakage problem caused by the worn seals depending on the usage frequency without stopping the production (when the line is under pressure) by using unique packing screws. Thus, production losses during the time spent in demounting operations are prevented.
Sampling Ball Valve…a special design for special demands!
Sampling valves are commonly used in various industries, everywhere from chemical plants to food industries. It is a type of valve that allows taking a sample of a fluids (either liquid or solids) so it can be tested for its quality. Main purpose for such valves is quality control. This also applies for the sugar industry: Sampling valves are being used at the vacuum pans in sugar factories/refineries where the quality of the sugar juice is being tested for its pureness.
When the sugar is obtained from the thick juice (sugar content 65–80%) by repeated crystallization at elevated temperature and negative pressure, the intermediate product is called “magma”, which is a mixture of thick juice and granulated sugar.
During the crystallization, a crystal suspension is created in the “vacuum pans”. The boilers are heated with vapors from the evaporation station and are under vacuum to ensure energy-saving evaporation of the water at low temperatures. This means the clarified juice must be evaporated for the sugar to crystalize. The vacuum pans are big vessels where the syrup is boiled under vacuum, and since they are under vacuum, it is very important to install a sampling valve that can fulfill this vacuum-resistance. Airpower Europe has come up with the idea of this sampling ball valve upon request from various sugar factories, where the sampling process was rather problematic due to the difficulty of taking clean samples.
For this purpose Airpower Europe GmbH has designed a special sampling ball valve that is being used and appreciated by many sugar factory workers worldwide. Today this sampling valve is being used in sugar factories in Germany, Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, Turkey, Pakistan, Poland etc. It consists of a 3 piece stainless steel ball valve, with a closed ball on one side. Nominal diameter is DN50 with a pressure range of PN40. Temperature range is from -10°C to +200°C. The operation of the valve is being handled through a hand lever.

Proportional valves with linear motors in the medical industry
The Precision Fluidics Division of Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, announced the release of their new Parker LM-Pro linear motor proportional valve targeted at the respiratory and anaesthesia markets.
“The Parker LM-Pro miniature proportional valve utilizes a patent pending linear motor actuation technology to enable flow up to 540 slpm in a very compact and energy efficient package, while providing an unparalleled, controllable range to allow for use across multiple respiratory applications,” says Beth Young, division marketing manager at Parker Precision Fluidics.
A critical feature of the LM-Pro valve is the valve’s linear motor actuation technology that provides exceptional resolution over a longer stroke and lower power consumption than traditional solenoid or voice coil actuation designs. With a linear controllable flow range from 0.5 to 540 slpm, pressure capability up to 100 psi (6.9 bar), and typical power consumption of less than 2 Watts, the LM-Pro valve enables very precise flow control throughout the full performance range of the valve. The LM-Pro valve allows for simple, closed loop feedback, giving the customer precise pressure or flow control. This ensures accurate and safe delivery of precise gases to patients, from neonates to adults. Typical applications will have power usage of less than 2 Watts, giving the customer longer battery life or ability to use a smaller battery to save size and weight. Typical hysteresis of <10% (full scale), coupled with a fast response time of <20 msec (full cycle), give the customer the ultimate in low and high flow rate and precision control proportional valve performance.
The Parker LM-Pro is a true, one-size-fits-all, proportional valve. Its unrivalled performance capability combined with the simplicity of a face mounted/ported design make the LM-Pro valve an ideal solution for varied applications with dynamic flow control needs. “It is ideal for customers who are trying to increase performance while continuing to decrease the footprint of their products,” says Paul Nierman, division engineering manager at Parker Precision Fluidics.
As systems become smaller and more portable, power concerns and accurate flow control at both the high and low ends of the spectrum are vital. The Parker LM-Pro linear motor proportional valve is a great example of the portfolio of products at the Precision Fluidics Division of Parker Hannifin that lead the market in miniature, low power, light weight, high performance fluidic products.
