Richter introduces PFA lined control ball-valve

13 September 2017

Richter Chemie-Technik GmbH is introducing a new size control ball for its KNR and KNAR control ball valve series.

Increasing production quantities increasingly require larger diameters of pipelines and thus also larger valves. Richter anticipated to these changing requirements with the launch of the PFA-lined control ball for the KNR/F DN200 and KNAR/F 8” valves. The optimization of flow behavior supported by CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics ) has allowed the company to ensure a stable maximal flow with minimal pressure losses. The geometric shape ensures low turbulence throughout the flow range. The control characteristics and true equal percentage curve is valid at various flow rates up to a kv value of 1000 m3/h.

Richter’s gastight KNR/F 200 has universal chemical resistant PFA lining ≥ 6 mm thickness, permeation and vacuum resistant construction, and higher efficiency due to better control behavior.
