Dual Seal End Pieces

October 15th, 2015 | by | No comments yet

Motivation For years, IMI-Flow Design has provided valves with end connections customized for the job at hand.  When field disconnection is desired this means our carefully designed o-ring unions with their superior o-ring retention, but on system connections for an isolation valve a more permanent and tamper-proof system is required. The dual seal end-piece design is a permanent


Why’s There A Nut Under That Handle?

October 15th, 2015 | by | No comments yet

What? Many products from IMI-Flow Design have an integrated ball valve for isolating the terminal.  Under the handle of these ball valves there’s a nut.  This is called the “packing nut”.   Concealed under the packing nut is… wait for it… packing.  Specifically, there’s a piece of PTFE which is squeezed by the nut to


Three Classes of Flow Controller

May 11th, 2015 | by | No comments yet

Class I These are the simplest flow controllers mechanically.  The differential pressure across the device acts on an area, which tends to move a piston.  This force is opposed by a force which varies with position (normally a spring).  The force due to pressure and the spring force determine the position of the piston.  The


Venturi Balancing Valves

December 31st, 2014 | by | No comments yet

IMI Flow Design sells manual balancing valves based on a fixed venturi element.  This brings up certain questions, of course. What’s a Venturi? A venturi, at least in this context, is a device which converts pressure to kinetic energy, then converts it back. To put it simply, it gets narrow, then widens out gradually so


Modulating Control Valves and Autoflow™

December 31st, 2014 | by | No comments yet

The question comes up regularly: does Autoflow™ interfere with the operation of a modulating control valve? After all, as the control valve closes, the Autoflow will be opening. In short, of course it will make a difference, but it will not be worse than without the Autoflow™. Saturation The rate of heat flux from the
