Precision Fine Tune Control Valve - Flow Curves

 

 

More Turns =
More Fine Tuning Control


As shown in these charts, a standard gate valve (blue curve) goes from fully closed to near maximum flow with only 3-4 turns of the handle, making it difficult to set the gas flow with any degree of accuracy.

 

QED’s Precision Fine Tune™ Control Valve (U.S. Patent Number 8,800,597) (red curve) takes 9+ turns to go from fully closed to near maximum flow, making flow adjustment far more linear. Because QED's valve requires more turns to achieve a given flow rate change, it allows the operator to make more precise adjustments. This is especially true at lower flow rates.
