Product Announcement from Conant Controls, Inc.
Just some of the features that have made Conant Controls Valves among the most reliable in the industry:
Self-Lubricating Not just a coating, but solid Teflon®, used in the sleeve or rotor of the valve has natural, self lubricating properties and a low coefficient of friction. Therefore, there is no need for oil or grease. Teflon® has lower friction than any other solid material including graphite and molybdenum disulfide, and its lubricity results in smoother movement and operation of the valve.
Chemical Resistance Valves are completely resistant to nearly all chemicals, gases, and solvents, such as strong caustics, sulfuric and hydrofluoric acids, aqua regia, and solvents, such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, esters, ketones, and ethers up to their boiling points.
Temperature and Pressure Ranges: -60°F to +400°F Teflon® offers this wide temperature range, and with the use of Teflon® we are able to produce a valve that has exceptional thermal stability while maintaining a low coefficient of friction. Therefore, the valve is suitable for continuous service at either high or low temperatures. The pressure range for maximum continuous service is from 0-1000 PSI (stainless steel).
Wear Resistance In operation, thin films of Teflon® are transferred from the rotor to the mating surface (or vice versa) in the body of the valve until it is coated with Teflon®. Thus, the condition becomes one of Teflon® sliding against Teflon®. After the initial break-in period, this produces a surface with extremely low wear and eliminates fretting and galling. 2-way valve animation 3-way valve animation 4-way valve animation 5-way valve animation
