postheadericon Anti-Cavitation Valve

Liquid control valves designed to resist cavitation by reducing flow over objects and angles that create low pressure zones.

Example like Bermad's Wide Body (“Y” or Angle Pattern) valve which is Hydro-dynamically designed for efficient flow with minimal pressure loss. With a full bore valve port area clear of obstructions; no ribs or stem guides. Bermad's design increases capacity by 25% over standard globe valves.

For Mining application, the Bermad hYflow ‘Y’ Valve Body is a polypropylene constructed valve that meets rough service conditions with high chemical and resists causing cavitation. Having an end-to-end “look-through” design and full bore seat with unobstructed flow path. This anti-cavitation valve is free of any in-line ribs, supporting cage, or shafts, enables ultra-high flow capacity with minimal pressure loss.

Comparator of valve types:
Normal Throttled Isolation Valve/Orifice Plate valve type
- Very high maintenance due to cavitation and seat leakage
BERMAD Pressure Reducing Valve
+ Very low maintenance, since they are built for regulation (anti-cavitation)

Benefits or Applications:
* Protection against damage caused by cavitation
* Reducing “Noise” caused by the violent action of cavitation in valve and pipe
* Help protect against valve or pipe “Bursting”
* System maintenance savings
