Kates - Flow Control Valves

Custom Valve Concepts has been manufacturing flow rate controllers for every type of application from simple blending to high-pressure hydrogen gas for Hydrocrackers.

Kates FC Valve Automatic Flow Rate Controller

 Kates FC Valve Automatic Flow Rate Controller

Successful in a variety of liquid and gas applications. The Kates FC Valve combines an adjustable orifice with an internal regulating valve, maintaining a constant pressure drop across the metering orifice.

PVC Automatic Flow Rate Controller

 PVC Automatic Flow Rate Controller

The PVC flow rate controller works under the same basic principle as the stainless steel unit. PVC construction makes the unit ideal for use with corrosive mediums where stainless steel is incompatible. The Kates PVC Flow Rate Controller is available with flow ranges from .05 GPM to 25 GPM (.19 to 94.6 LPM).

I/Q Valve

 I/Q Valve

Regardless of pressure fluctuations, the Kates I/Q valve will control the flow rate proportional to the 4 - 20 mA input. Flow output is perfectly linear to signal input. By internally controlling the differential pressure across an adjustable orifice, flow control is maintained to within 1-1/2% of setpoint.

Flo-Miser Flow Rate Controller

 Flo-Miser Flow Rate Controller

The Flo-Miser combines a characteristic needle valve with an internal differential pressure regulating valve. By controlling the pressure drop across the adjustable orifice, the flow rate will always remain constant. The control portion is immersed in the fluid and response time to pressure variations is immediate; hunting and oscillation are eliminated.

Kates Micro-Flo

 Kates Micro-Flo

The Micro-Flo combines a characterized needle valve with an internal differential pressure-regulating valve. By controlling the pressure drop across the adjustable orifice, the flow rate will always remain constant. Since the control portion is immersed in the fluid it is controlling, response time to pressure variations is immediate and hunting or oscillation is eliminated.

Mini-Flo Automatic Flow Rate Controller

 Mini-Flo Automatic Flow Rate Controller

The Kates Mini-Flow regulator maintains flow at the set rate, regardless of the variations in either supply or discharge pressure, by holding a constant pressure drop across the metering orifice.

Since the regulator always maintains the same pressure drop across the orifice, the flow rate is determined by the size of the fixed orifice and the differential pressure setting.

Did you know???

It is rather ordinary for us to come across a Kates controller in the field still functioning after 40, 50 or even 60 years.
