Jordan Valve Announces the Addition of 2 New Pressure Regulating Valves

Cincinnati - Jordan Valve is proud to announce the addition of two new valves to our line - the Mark 5108 back pressure regulating/sustaining valve and the Mark 6127 pressure reducing valve. These valves are hydraulically operated, diaphragm actuated for multi-function control of non-corrosive, non-abrasive fluids. Available in globe or angle configuration, these piloted valves operate off line pressure or, if desired, from an independent power source. These specialty products add additional product breadth to our Jordan Valve offering.

The Mark 5108 Series - in many liquid piping systems, it is vital that line pressure be maintained within relatively narrow limits. The Mark 5108 is designed to do just that. The Mark 5108 can act as a back pressure /  sustaining valve, bypass pressure control valve or a surge / relief valve.

The Mark 6127 Series - the primary function of the Mark 6127 is to reduce a greater upstream pressure to a lesser, more manageable downstream pressure, operating without regard to either upstream supply or downstream demand.

To learn more about the Mark 5108 and Mark 6127, please contact your local representative or distributor.

Jordan Valve Introduces the Mark 75HW Series

Cincinnati - The Mark 75HW is a manually operated, sliding gate control valve. The wafer style body provides great value for the end user while offering all of the benefits of the sliding gate seat. The hand wheel operator allows the user to manually position the valve for optimum flow and lock in place. The valve is available in 1", 1-1/2" and 2" sizes.

The Mark 75HW offers an incredible pricing advantage in the market place due to its wafer style body. A 2" Mark 75HW valve is only 1.76" (44,7mm) face-to-face comparison to a 2" Class 150 globe style control valve with a face-to-face of 10" (254mm). What does this mean to you? You pay for less metal to make the valve. In the case above, 8.24" (209,3mm) of metal! The actual material is only part of the savings. You pay less for machining time; even shipping costs are reduced due to the lighter weight.

The Mark 75HW features a 'T' slot design connection to the disc. This connection allows for quick and easy reversing of functions. Instead of having to go into the actuator to change action, all that is needed in a Mark 75HW is to turn the seats 180°. With this simple rotation, the valve can go from reverse acting to direct acting (or vice versa).

The stroke length of the Mark 75HW is a slightly longer stroke than standard sliding gate valves. This longer stroke enables better turndown. Combined with the capacity of the Mark 75HW, the increased turndown makes for a great control valve.

To learn more about the Mark 75HW, contact your local representative or distributor.
