VREL® - High Pressure Sample Flow Control Valve

Catalog excerpts

SENTRY VREL CONTROL VALVE Pressure Conditioning Solid & Powder Steam & Water Chemical analysis of water and steam samples in modern power generation plants requires precise control of flow and pressure. However, high-pressure reduction needs can present sampling problems. The patented Sentry® VREL® is a valve specifically designed to solve unique high-pressure sampling issues. The Sentry VREL consists of two stainless steel tubes joined to a large tube or barrel. A tapered rod assembly is inserted into precision holes in the barrel. The high pressure fluid enters, flows past one rod, turns and flows past the other rod, and then out. Pressure drop is a function of the length of the rods inserted into the barrel. The pressure is reduced smoothly under laminar flow conditions, minimizing dissociation of any components through discontinuous pressure drops. The rod position is controlled externally by turning the knob, and can be adjusted while sample is flowing. If blockage occurs, the rods can be retracted so system pressure can blow the solid matter through. The Sentry VREL is the industry standard for samples greater than 500 psig (34.5 barg) according to the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, ASTM Designation D3370. MODEL VREL BENEFITS The Sentry VREL adjustable rod-in-tube design allows for variable pressure drop and flow control. Plus, unlike other valves, the VREL is cleanable in place without shutdown of the sample line. Since corrosion products, scale and other foreign matter often find their way into sample lines, plugging of the pressure reduction valve is common, and the sample line must be shut down while the valve is removed for cleaning or replacement. However, if the Sentry VREL plugs with solids, the rods can be fully retracted and the obstruction blown free without disconnecting any lines. The analyzer can be returned to service in minutes. Both of these design advantages provide consistent sample conditioning. And, when source pressures change, such as at startup and shutdown, the Sentry VREL can be easily adjusted to allow continuous monitoring under all pressure conditions. FEATURES Ergonomic speed handle substantially reduces turning effort No valve/regulator erosion or wire drawing Fine flow control Fully retractable rods assure easy online purging Manufactured under one or more U. S. patents: RE37,153 Extended-body design eliminates possibility of bent tubes Flows from 150 milliliters per minute up to 4 liters per minute at pressure drops up to 5000 psig (345 barg) standard, and 7803 psig (538 bar) for supercritical p
