  • A Deeper Analysis Of Diaphragm Master Valves

    430 Series-01Diaphragm valves are pressure responsive elements that transmit force leading to opening, closing or controlling a valve. They are extremely clean with an easy maintenance and offer tight shutoff feature along with a leak-proof seal.

    How do they control the flow?

    A flexible diaphragm is connected to a compressor by a stud that is molded into a diaphragm. The diaphragm is pushed into contact with the bottom of the valve body to provide shut off instead of pinching the line closer. Starting or stopping applications is done by turning the hand wheel until the compressor lifts the bottom or pushes the diaphragm against the bottom of the valve body to stop flow.

    How does it function?

    Connect the diaphragm to a compressor by a stud molded into the diaphragm. When the compressor is moved up, the flow starts and can be increased. While to stop or slow down the process, the compressor is lowered. These diaphragm valves are best suited for controlling the flow of fluids containing suspended solids and offer flexibility of installation in any position. Throttling is better with weir-type diaphragm valves than with straight valves due to the design’s large shutoff area along the seat. The diaphragm performs the role of a gasket of the valve to seal against leaks between the bod and bonnet cap.

    Where is the diaphragm valve used?

    These valves are best suited for handling fibrous slurries, corrosive fluids, radioactive fluids and other fluids that are not contaminated. The best thing about diaphragms is that they are not exposed to the media and can be used with viscous or sticky fluids.

    What are its components?

    The construction of a diaphragm valve consists of a body and an actuator.

    • Diaphragm body is made of a stem, bonnet and a compressor. The stem can be indicating or non-indicating and does not rotate. The diaphragm valve bonnets are lever-operated and quick opening and can be interchanged with standard bonnets on the conventional weir-type bodies. You can open or close the diaphragm with a 90° turn of the lever. Operations of the diaphragms are performed by a compressor that is located above the diaphragm and below the handwheel stem.
    • The valve actuator performs an operation of the stem and disc to open or close the valve. There are several types of actuators like manually operated, electric motor, pneumatic, hydraulic and thermal actuators. You can select an actuator which gives you the expected output power to ensure high degree sealing and valve opening.

    What are diaphragms made of?

    The bodies of diaphragms can be made of materials such as solid plastic, plastic lined, glass lined, rubber lined solid metals and alloys.

    You can use the diaphragm valves to connect into a variety of piping systems. But be sure of the pre-existing system requirements and the type of seal desired.

  • Why That Extra Foam? Know How to Use Your Beer Regulators

    This monster-like thing inside your Kegregator controls almost everything in your draft beer system except the temperature. Gas cylinders contain carbon dioxide at a pressure measuring in the hundreds of pounds per square inch. The beer keg CO2 regulators allow you to control the gas flow from the cylinder into beer via the keg as it is dangerous to work with.

    Beer Tap Regulators

    Adjusting the pressure going into the keg is just a matter of turning the gas on with the cylinder valve, closing the shut-off valve that is connected to the hose going to the keg and then turning the screw clockwise in order to decrease the pressure.

    Tired of a Foamy Beer? There is a 95% possibility that it’s a temperature problem. Also, the way you pour your beer is responsible for the extra foamy beer. Ensure quick opening of the faucet with one quick steady motion not partially or too slowly and you will get just the correct amount of foam.

    Before that, you must understand how to set your gas and regulator. Read the following instructions clearly and you are sure to compete with the professional bartenders:

    Step 1: Make sure that the cylinder is held upright (don’t rely only on the hose) as otherwise the unregulated gas will escape creating a chaotic situation all around.

    Step 2: Clean the contamination from the valve. Turn the pressure adjusting knob fully in a counterclockwise direction and close the shut off valve.

    Step 3: Mount the regulator on the cylinder and tighten it with a wrench. Ensure that the gauge faces you and the outlet is facing down. The regulator outlet fitting is ready to be connected to the product gas house.

    Step 4: Open the cylinder valve and the shut off valve on the regulator fully to check for any leaks.

    Step 5: It’s time to set the pressure. Slowly turn the adjustment knob clockwise until the desired operating pressure is shown by the output gauge on the regulator.

    The CO2 beer Kegregator regulator for home dispense is an exciting way to enjoy a professionally foamed up the beer glass in a home setting. JTC Valve Sales stocks beer and beverage tap regulators with detailed instructions for you to experience a professional drink at your convenience. We have a good stock of high pressure double gauge nitrogen & CO2 beer regulators. Place an order and it will reach you the same day!

  • Testing Automatic Changeover Regulators for Twin DOT Cylinder Applications

    MP2523HP SeriesAutomatic changeover regulators save us from the hassle of running out of gas. The loss of time, energy and repute and inconvenience due to stoppage of gas supply is unexplainable. The changeover regulators are responsible for continuous supply of gas and are designed especially for use in systems where a reserve cylinder is attached.

    As for any industrial equipment, the automatic changeover regulators must be tested before application to prevent irrecoverable damages. Here are steps to guide you through the testing process:

    • Firstly, rotate the cylinder selector lever fully towards one of the cylinders. This is your service cylinder. The other cylinder will act as a reserve cylinder. Ensure that both the cylinders are filled with gas; refill if necessary.
    • On turning both cylinder valves fully, wait till you notice the sight indicator turns green.
    • Ignite two or three cooktop burners to create a load on the pressure regulator and take note of the visible flame structure. (Avoid using the water heater or the furnace)
    • Close the service cylinder valve fully to simulate running out of gas situation. Now, observe the sight indicator. It should turn red. Make sure that the ignited cooktop burners look exactly as before.
    • Now, rotate the cylinder selector lever fully towards the reserve cylinder and observe the sight indicator to show green.
    • Disconnect the pigtail from the service cylinder and ensure that no fuel is emitted from the pigtail.
    • Now, reconnect it to the service cylinder & open its service valve fully.
    • Repeat the complete process, beginning with the reserve cylinder this time.
    • If both the cylinders respond as above, your automatic changeover regulator is working normally. If you notice gas leaking out of a disconnected pigtail or the burner flames are extinguished at any time during this test, you will need to troubleshoot.

    If you are looking for quality regulators, JTC Valve Sales is your place. We stock only high quality products to ensure our products don’t cause any damage to our clients. Visit our website for more details.

  • Safe Handling of Acetylene Cylinders To Avoid Potential Hazards

    Acetylene is inherently a safe gas and is an invaluable commodity for the industry. Being a highly flexible gas, acetylene is used in many industrial processes. It is known to an irreplaceable for oxyfuel gas welding and cutting. It features high versatility and functionality with also being hazardous if not handled with care. However, the acetylene cylinders have a different design from most other gas cylinders and the gas reacts differently when exposed to fire.

    acetylene valves

    Safeguarded by acetylene cylinder valves, the acetylene cylinders consist of a steel shell comprising a porous mass which in combination with liquid acetone dissolves the gas. Decomposition of acetylene is triggered by heat, leaving the cylinder in an unstable, hazardous condition and can also lead to explosion.

    Due to the special potential for a delayed action rupture with acetylene cylinders, observing certain safety measures to minimize the risk and level of destruction.

    Tips to handle acetylene gas cylinders:

    • The alarm should be sounded and area evacuated in case of any event of an incident
    • Train the user appropriately before letting him use Oxyfuel gas equipment
    • Fit non-return acetylene valves on the torch
    • Check for any leaks prior to lighting up
    • Prefer to ignite the fuel gas equipment before introducing the oxygen stream with the nozzle pointing upwards
    • During transport, ensure that the vehicle is properly ventilated and there are appropriate restraints to save the gas filled cylinders from exploding
    • After being transported, the acetylene cylinders must be left to settle in an upright position so that the liquid acetone returns to its normal position in the porous mass
    • Always use a flashback arrestor while using acetylene cylinders
    • Never open the acetylene cylinder valves more than one and a half turns as it can be closed easily in case of an emergency

    We, at JTC Valve Sales, understand the strict industry specifications and only sell products which comply with the highest quality standards & undergo a thorough automated testing process. You can place an order for all your valve requirements with us as we stock almost all of them.
