View Tameson's range of valves. These valves form a great solution for fluid control applications. More information on each valve type is given below. If you need help with choosing a valve, please contact us .
Solenoid valves are electromechanical controlled valves. A solenoid controls the valve’s plunger that closes off a small orifice. Different kind of solenoid operation types exist. For a complete overview please read our article about solenoid valve types.
A ball valve is a shut-off valve but it can also be used for flow modulation. It controls the liquid or gas flow using a rotary ball with a bore. Through rotation of the ball the flow is let through or blocked. The valve does not require a pressure difference to function. ISO top ball valves can be fitted with either a manual handle or an electric/pneumatic actuator.
Butterfly valves are quarter-turn valves. It consists out of a “butterfly” disk that is connected to a rod. The flow is controlled by rotating the rod. Butterfly valves can act as a shut-off valve or a control valve. ISO top butterfly valves can be fitted with either a manual handle or an electric/pneumatic actuator.
Directional control valves are used in pneumatic systems. They control the compressed air flow to their appliances. They are can for example be used to control a pneumatic cylinder. Directional valves can have 2 or more ports. They are also able to fulfil various circuit functions.
Check valves, also known as non-return valves allow flow in only one direction. Their main purpose is to prevent backflow.
Gate valves exist out of a gate that is lifted out or into the flow. The valve is operated using a handwheel. The distinct feature of a gate valve is the straight-through unobstructed passage way, which induces minimal pressure loss over the valve.
Needle valves are used for accurate flow rate control. They can be suitable for clean gasses or fluids. They can also be used as a shut-off valve. They are mainly used for low flow rates. Needle valves have a relatively large pressure drop over the valve.
Angle seat valves have a spindle that is placed under an angle to close the orifice. They can either be manually or pneumatically controlled. The are suitable for high flow rates and have a relatively high Kv value. They are characterized by their long lifespan of millions of cycles. There is a risk of water hammer, this can be resolved by versions that close against the flow direction.
Tameson also offers quarter turn valve actuators. These actuators can be mounted on ball-, butterfly- or other valves that have an ISO 5211 flange. Tameson offers electrically or pneumatically operated versions. For more precise control of the flow an electric actuator is recommended.
