Everything you should know about check valve

Check Valve – How Do They Work? A check valve is a device that only allows the flow of fluids in one direction. They have two ports, one as an inlet for the media and one as the output for the media. Since they only allow media flow in one direction, they are commonly referred to as ‘one way valves’ or ‘non return valves.’ The main purpose of a check valve is to prevent backflow in the system. Figure 1 shows an example of a check valve. A check valve relies on a pressure differential to work. They require a higher pressure on the input side of the valve than the output side to open the valve. When the pressure is higher on the outlet side (or the input side pressure is not high enough), the valve will close. Depending on the valve type, the closure mechanism is different. Unlike other valves, they do not need a handle, lever, actuator, or human to correctly work. They are commonly installed in applications that backflow would cause an issue. However, since they are non return valves, they are a cheap, effective, and easy solution to solve a potential issue. Backflow can cause an issue if the backflow is contaminated, and therefore, contaminates the media upstream. For example, a sewer line will have a non return valve to ensure that waste can leave

What is Custom Valve Manufacturing? and versus Mass Produced Parts.

What is Custom Valve Manufacturing? In the valve manufacturing world, there are two primary types of products – mass-produced stock items, also known as off-the-shelf products, and custom-manufactured items, where a customer can have a greater say in what they want. Valve Mass production came about as a consequence of the industrial revolution. What mass production offered to consumers was greater access to products of uniform quality at reduced prices. The tradeoff was that customers had less control over the exact details of the product that they received. As Fanovo’s president once said in regard to custom valve manufacturing, “our mission is to make the purchase of valve plumbing painless for global clients.” This quote underscores one of the key differences between mass-produced versus custom products – consumer choice. ­One of the ways in which mass production reduces costs is to develop valve processes that maximize efficiency. This objective is accomplished in part by reducing the need for human involvement and driving towards the standardization of design features, materials, and methods of production. The result of this drive to efficiency is less variability in product production. What mass production offers in gains to efficiency, custom manufacturing offers in craftsmanship and flexibility. In this , we will explore more about custom metal manufacturing and examine how it differs from mass production, how custom valve manufacturers may be characterized, and what factors underlie the

Evolution History of Shaft Collars and Select a Proper Shaft Collar

Evolution History of Shaft Collars and Select a Proper Clamping Shaft Collar   Collar Evolution History  The first mass-produced shaft collars were used primarily on line shafting in early manufacturing mills. Early set screw collars were solid ring types that employed square-head screws that protruded from the collar. Protruding screws proved to be a problem because of their tendency to catch on worker’s clothing, pulling them into the machinery. Shaft collars saw few improvements until the early 1900’s when Howard T. Hallowell created the first recessed head socket set screw collar. Hallowell received a patent on his safety set collar, which was soon copied by others and became the industry standard. Since the screw impinges into the shaft when using set screw collars, using them is destructive to the shaft. As a result, the clamp-style shaft collar was invented to achieve greater compressive forces and holding power without damaging the shaft. It is uncertain who invented clamp-style collars, but they have been used since WWII where they were used in bombsights and guiding systems. At the time, clamp-style shaft collars were considered high-tech precision components, and they are still used in advanced systems with difficult requirements today. Shaft collars are one of the simplest components in machine design but are also one of the most indispensable. Shaft collars can be found in virtually any type of machinery and are frequently

Looking to learn a little more about the carburization of steel? Learn more! This guide has everything you need to know. What is Carburization for Steel Parts. Carburization is a process which involves taking a low carbon steel and transforming it into a high carbon steel. This is done by exposing it to an atmosphere which is dense in carbon. Generally, items are carburized in furnaces, vats, and other enclosed entities. By heating a steel item in a carbon-dense atmosphere, said item will allow carbon atoms to attach to its surface on a molecular level. After these carbon atoms have attached to its surface, it will gain both hardness and strength. One of the most popular forms of case hardening, carburization can provide steel items with varying levels of hardness. Generally, the higher the heat, and the longer the duration of the carburization process, the harder the carburized item will be. Carburizing Steel

What are the functions and purposes of sight glass?

What are the functions and purposes of sight glass? The purpose of a sight glass is to allow factory managers and engineers to look inside of their systems without disrupting the environment within. Often referred to as viewing glasses, they offer you a way to see the levels of liquids or gases that are traveling through a critical point of your design, monitor pressure changes, and virtually anything else that sight glass windows could allow you to do. With their widespread use, sight glasses have become critical to operations such as steam pipelines, chemical processing, pharmaceutical processing, and food processing. Often simple in design, rudimentary sight glasses of the past consisted of a glass tube that was linked to an important part of your system, like a tank or a gas inlet. Modern industrial sight glasses are made from a glass disk that’s securely held by bolts and gaskets between two metal frames, with the goal of maintaining the standards of sanitary fittings. The glass that’s used is typically soda lime glass or borosilicate glass, while stainless steel is the go-to choice for the metal due to its superior strength and abrasion resistance, even with 304 steel. It’s necessary for a sight glass to be able to withstand whatever materials and fluids it will come into contact with so that the glass does not tarnish or degrade, impairing your ability to use it for

Understanding The Types, Properties and Installtion of Balancing Valve

The Type of Balancing Valve During commissioning of heating  and cooling systems, hydraulic balance is often achieved using balancing valves. Two types of these valves exist: static and dynamic balancing valves. Static balancing valves serve as a permanent resistance, built into the system.The settings for these valves must therefore be calculated and adjusted accurately, as changing just one of them in the system could change the flow through all other valves. Dynamic balancing valves work as flow limiters. They are set to a desired flow rate and ensure that a larger flow rate does not take place. If the pressure in front of the valve increases, it will close some more, so the pressure loss across the valve becomes correspondingly higher. This maintains the desired flow rate in the specific path.The inlet pressure for a dynamic balancing valve needs to be higher than a certain limit for it to operate properly. This means that the resistance at the most distant valve cannot be close to zero, as is the case with static valves. Balancing valves are available from numerous manufacturers. Some of these provide electronic measurement equipment that allows measuring the flow through their valves. This is done by measuring the pressure loss across the valve and calculating the flow according to the kv-value of the present position of the valve.

Characteristics And Methods Of Heat Treatment Process

What Is Heat Treatment? Heat treatment is the process of heating and cooling metals, using specific predetermined methods to obtain desired properties. Both ferrous as well as non-ferrous metals undergo heat treatment before putting them to use. The Benefits There are various reasons for carrying out heat treating. Some procedures make the metal soft, while others increase hardness. They may also affect the electrical and heat conductivity of these materials. Some heat treatment methods relieve stresses induced in earlier cold working processes. Others develop desirable chemical properties to metals. Choosing the perfect method really comes down to the type of metal and the required properties. In some cases, a metal part may go through several heat treatment procedures. For instance, some super alloys used in the aircraft manufacturing industry may undergo up to six different heat treating steps to optimise it for the application. Heat Treatment Process Steps In simple terms, heat treatment is the process of heating the metal, holding it at that temperature, and then cooling it back. During the process, the metal part will undergo changes in its mechanical properties. This is because the high temperature alters the microstructure of the metal. And microstructure plays an important role in the mechanical properties of a material. The final outcome depends on many different factors. These include the time of heating, time of keeping the metal part at a certain

How to Purchase Shaft Collars for your applications

What is the most important When Selecting Shaft Collars for Equipments and Machines? There are a variety of factors that determine which collar is ideal for an application. It is important to carefully identify all the relevant requirements, parameters, and limitations of your system before selecting a shaft collar. All things being equal, the holding power of each style of shaft collar increases from left to right: quick clamping, set screw, thin line, standard clamp types, double wide, heavy duty, threaded/bearing locknut.   In many applications, holding power is the key performance factor designers are looking for. It is affected by a variety of collar specifications and affects the collar’s maximum axial load. A set screw collars  holding power is dependent on how much the screw can impinge into the shaft, which is a function of the relationship between the screw and shaft materials. Bore size and concentricity influence the holding power of Clamp style shaft collars , however the importance of fastening hardware cannot be understated. The size and quality of hardware, namely thread quality, tensile strength, and size tolerances, affect how much torque the screw can transmit to the collar. Forged screws are generally superior to broached screws as they are more consistent and are less likely to ream out. Likewise, the collar itself must be manufactured from a material strong enough to withstand the recommended screw torque or else it may

What is shaft collar The shaft collars are a straightforward, yet essential, machine element found in several power transmission applications, most notably electric motors as well as transmissions. The collars are utilized as mechanical stoppers, situating components, and bearing fronts. The easy style lends itself to easy setup. In general, shaft collar type fall into one of two broad categories. How to select a proper shaft collar? Clamp Style Shaft Collars(Click for more) These were developed to fix the problems connected with the set-screw collar. They are available in one and also two-piece designs. Rather than protruding right into the shaft, the screws act to compress the shaft collars as well as lock it into its location. The simplicity of use is preserved with this design and there is no shaft damages. Although clamp-type collars work extremely well under fairly consistent pressure, certain types of loads can cause the collar to change its placement on the shaft. This is because of the high pressures that can be created by a relatively small mass influence, compared with a statically or progressively applied weight.    Set Screw Collars(Click for more)  The initial shaft collars were set screw collars, found mostly in very early factories and manufacturing plants. Set screw collars are best made use of when the material of the shaft is softer than the established screw.
