Jordan Control Valves
Jordan Regulating and Control Valves are represented by Valvelink due to their products’ superior design technology, ability to be modified in situ and additional benefits in comparison to similar level valves.
Jordan’s unique ‘Sliding Gate’, as opposed to the traditional ‘Globe Style’ set up within, is a simple concept that offers sophisticated performance and benefits not found in traditional rising stem and rotary valves. The sliding gate is made up of two primary parts: a moveable disc and a stationary plate with multiple orifices. Together, this seat achieves levels of performance, reliability and accuracy that is difficult to find in other valve designs.
The basic concept is that the plate and gate sit perpendicular to the flow, unlike the traditional globe style design. The straight through design of the sliding gate and plate reduces turbulence and provides superior trim life. A well as providing unparalleled low flow control since the flow works with the design, not against it. It also offers a much shorter stroke length, only a fraction of the equivalent globe or rotary style valves thus reducing the droop in the regulator.
