ROSS CONTROLS® Introduces Dale Series LF & LX High-Flow Inline-Mounted Valves

POSTED 11/13/2009

(TROY, MI) – ROSS CONTROLS is pleased to announce the release of its Dale Series LF and LX high-flow poppet valves to the market. Meeting many needs in one product, these cost effective valves offer customers a lightweight, full flow product in a small package.

The Series LF and LX 2-way valves are inline-mounted and available in normally-open, normallyclosed and pressure-controlled configurations. Available in pipe sizes ranging from 3/8 to 2-½”, the valves have a Cv range of 3.6 to 64.7. The Series LF and LX valves do not restrict airflow at inlet or outlet, so they are suitable for applications where full flow is required.

The valve’s dirt-tolerant poppet design and continuous-duty rating ensure long service life in a broad array of applications, such as:

  • Pulp and Paper
  • Steel Mills- Pickling
  • Packaging- Food and Chemical
  • Power Generation
  • Industrial Mineral
  • Vacuum
  • Leak Test (Series LX)
  • Thermoforming
  • Transportation
  • Fiberglass
  • Rubber Mixing
  • Pressure Pilot Valves

The Series LF and LX valves are a value-added solution and a superior alternative to highmaintenance diaphragm valves and costly ball-actuated valves. If hammering is an issue in your application, the Series LF and LX valves can eliminate this problem. The valves have built-in speed control, which allows for fast shifting or controlled shifting in either direction, thus preventing the damage and downtime that might otherwise occur.

For applications where weight is a consideration, the LF and LX valves are a great solution because of their lightweight anodized aluminum alloy construction. Due to their leak tight design, the Series LX models are a perfect solution for leak testing applications. Whatever the application, though, customers can look forward to time savings and ease-of-maintenance because the valves provide nonlube service and are easily repairable.
