DMIC has implemented the following product improvements to standard stainless steel ball valves. These changes affect only the stainless steel models in series BVH, BVAH, and BVHS ball valves. Prices are unaffected by these changes.
Standard crank handles are now made of 300 series stainless steel instead of zinc plated carbon steel. This new handle is identified by accessory code “K” in position IV of the accessory code matrix. This call out is only necessary when accessories are added to the valve. Standard SS valves without additional accessories will include 300 series SS crank handles. Stop washers for SS valves are also converting to 300 series SS.
Locking Handle Accessories
The standard accessory lock brackets and levers are now also made of 300 series stainless steel instead of zinc plated carbon steel. The SS locking handle option is identified by accessory code “P” in position I of the accessory code matrix. The typical accessory code call out for locking handles for these valves now changes from “AZZA” to “PZZK”.
The “Accessory Codes” table has been updated to reflect these change. Get the update here: Accessory Codes Table
Ball valves are an excellent choice for shut-off control in fluid handling systems. They are durable, simple, and available with a wide assortment of installation options. For automation requirements, ball valves can be fitted with many types of valve actuators, including double-acting pneumatic, spring-return pneumatic, electric, and hydraulic types.
As experts in the design and manufacture of high pressure and exotic application ball valves, DMIC is often called upon to provide accessory actuators for these devices. With full design and manufacturing capabilities, DMIC routinely fabricates brackets and shafts to adapt just about any ball valve to many popular actuator brands. DMIC also offers self-designed, high-torque hydraulic actuators.
Various accessories are available for actuators as well, including limit switches or proximity sensors for remote indication of valve position, solenoid valves for actuation air supply control, and manual override hand-wheels.
The next time you need an automated shut-off control valve, turn to DMIC – the experts in ball valve design and automation.
DMIC Series HM hydraulic manifold blocks, also known as bar manifolds, provide industry standard mounting of four-port hydraulic directional control valves in accordance with ISO 4401 mounting hole patterns. Blocks are available in three standard sizes to accommodate up to six stations. Parallel or series circuits are supported as well as SAE and BSPP threaded ORB port connections. A choice of ductile iron or aluminum construction offers a 5000 psi or 3000 psi pressure rating, respectively.
Manifold blocks assist with hydraulic power system circuit design and operation by simplifying component layout through the elimination of connection plumbing and associated leak points. Manifolds with multiple stations support the installation of several valves to a single manifold where a common pressure and tank connection is facilitated.
Whether for stationary or mobile hydraulic power applications, the Series HM manifold blocks represent a high quality, time-saving system design component.
DMIC’s Model BVALP ball valve offers hydraulic power system designers a compact, high-quality alternative for hydraulic fluid reservoir shut-off requirements.
The low profile design is ideal for space-restricted installations, which is further supported by the innovative welded-ring interface that provides a direct connection of the valve to the hydraulic fluid reservoir tank.
Interface to external plumbing is facilitated by either an SAE Code 61 or ANSI Class 150 flange connection. The valve can also be provided with an optional tank-side female NPT threaded port to support the connection of a suction strainer.
Standard materials of construction for the valve include a lightweight, machined aluminum body, brass trim, Teflon ball seals, and Buna-N O-rings. Optional Viton, EPR, Delrin, PEEK and other materials are available to provide compatibility with a wide range of fluids as well as environmental requirements. A choice of weld ring materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum are available to match the reservoir tank for ease of welding. Typically installed on the input side of a hydraulic pump, the BVALP is suitable for suction applications as well as other requirements to 250 psi. The valve is offered in standard bore sizes up to 4 inches. Special versions are available. Popular accessories include lockable handles and limit switches to provide remote indication of whether the valve is open or closed.
Another custom hydraulic manifold heading out the door at DMIC.
Whether you need a standardized bar manifold for mounting directional control valves or a custom hydraulic manifold to suit a specific motion control requirement, DMIC has your solution. With extensive CNC machining capabilities, DMIC has the resources to supply quality manifolds to meet your needs in a timely fashion. Parallel or series geometries are supported as well as porting for BSPP, ISO6149, or SAE ORB connections; and flange interfaces for SAE J518 Code 61 and Code 62 configurations. Contact DMIC today to discuss your hydraulic manifold requirements.
