Ring valve?s large flow areas improve performance

Article-Ring valve?s large flow areas improve performance

A new, three-piece general-purpose ring valve offers molders better performance with its all-new design. This four-fluted valve combines large flow areas with a shortened ring stroke to provide more precise shot control than is offered by many general-purpose ring valves, according to the manufacturer. The large, easy-flow patterns reduce the chance of shear. They also are beneficial to molders making short runs or frequent color/material changes as the large flow areas allow for easy cleaning and enhance its color mixing capabilities. Constructed of durable H-13 nitrided steel, the three-piece valve combats wear and offers longer ring valve life. The valves are available for immediate shipment in a wide variety of sizes for Milacron, Husky, and Van Dorn machines. The entire assembly (which includes the body, ring, and seat) for a Milacron machine ranges from $233 for a 1 5/8-inch valve up to $725 for a 4 1/2-inch valve. Valve prices are comparable for use on all three companies? machines.
