Patented Spherical-Disc

Diffuser-Plate Design

This is NOT just a modified butterfly valve; it is uniquely patented design that overcomes some of the limitations of classic control valves. Compared to the industry standard Globe Valve, this design has improved control at lower flow rates, better range-ability, higher flow capacity, reduced noise and vibration, and all at a lower cost.

Design Advantages 

  • Unparalleled Range-Ability w/ Equal Percentage Flow
    Controllable Range 5°-85° (Rangeability up to ~600:1)
    Optimal Control Range 10°-70° (Rangeability up to ~100:1) 
  • Fine-Tuned Low Flow Control and High Flow Capacity 
  • Reduced Noise & Vibration 

Two Control Phases

The superiority of this patented design is in the Two Control Phases.

  • Spherical-disc diffuser-plate design allows for two phases of control seamlessly integrated into Equal Percentage Flow Characteristics
  • Two optimized phases increase controllability in each phase and overall range-ability
  • Low flow phase forces all flow through the diffuser plate Diffuser plate provides low-noise, stable control for very low flow rates Allows for backpressure with very low noise
  • High flow phase allows flow to bypass around the disc

    Maximum flow capacity comparable to a fully open butterfly valve

    Flow remains parallel for minimal pressure drop, reduced noise

Scope:

Diffuser is defined as “A device for reducing the velocity and increasing the static pressure of a fluid passing through a system”.  Delta T’s unique diffuser plate butterfly valve does that by incorporating a spherical edged disc with the diffuser plate to direct and diffuse the flowstream.  This optimizes the ability to control flow and minimizes noise, cavitation and damaging high velocity jets of fluid.  In the first 30° of rotation, when pressure drop is the highest, the spherical edged disc constrains the flow, directing it through the diffuser to minimize the potential for damaging flow conditions.
