An innovative manual pinch valve designed to meet the needs of industry, is one developed for the output of finely granulated materials, in particular dry lime mud. This specific material contains a dry matter content level of 65 to 90%. A manual operated sleeve valve is composed of an elasticized inner tube within a pressure chamber and can be used as an outlet from the pressurizing process. The material processing is by use of a control pinch valve and a sluice feed which is used to ensure a pressure lock. The sluice feed provides a designated minimum height of material within the valve. The establishment of a tightly packed line of finely granulated material in the valve provides a significant drop in pressure which acts as a pressure lock.
The fourth one is the disk valve which is also known as swing check valve. It operates in the same manner as ball and cone valves, but the plug that settles over the opening is a disk. Disk and cone valves tend to wear down more because they have more moving parts and because they get bumped around on top of the flow of water when it is turned on.
As the efficiency and effectiveness of a manual sleeve valve depends on the quality and ability of the sleeve to meet the required material processing application, users must be familiar with the types of sleeves available. Whether their processing material application is related to chemical manufacturing or engineering, will determine which type of sleeve will best meet their specific needs.
The third one is similar to ball check valves, but the plug that seals the valve is shaped like a cone. It also can be called a lift check valve in which the disc, sometimes called a lift, can be lifted up off its seat by higher pressure of inlet or upstream fluid to allow flow to the outlet or downstream side. The cone is held on a bar, allowing it to lift out of the way when the water is flowing and drop back into place when the water is off. If water backflows through the pipe, it pushes up against the cone, creating a seal that keeps it from going any further.
So valved instruments are set up so that each valve, individually is in tune. Problems occur when performers must use valve combinations to adjust the pitch by more than three half steps. As you can see from the previous calculations, each time you add another half step, the working length must increase by more than the previous increase. Using the example of a 100" instrument, the third valve increases the length to 121.36" to produce an in-tune note three half steps below the original pitch. To lower the pitch a half step past this note, 8.09" of tubing is required. However, because the 2nd valve's length is only 6.67" this combination will be slightly sharp. This problem only compounds itself and in the 1-3 and 1-2-3 combinations, the deficit between the actual length and the "in-tune" length is 2.94" and 5.04" respectively. As you can tell, this creates a big problem, in fact, the 1-2-3 combination is about a fourth-step sharp!
The last one is the valve type and sizing. Over-sizing of valves sometimes occurs when trying to optimize process performance through a reduction of process variability. Over-sizing the valve may hurt process variability in two ways. First, the oversized valve puts too much gain in the valve, leaving less flexibility in adjusting the controller. Best performance results when most loop gain comes from the controller. The second way oversized valves hurt process variability is that an oversized valve is likely to operate more frequently at lower valve openings where seal friction can be greater, particularly in rotary valves.
