With this in mind, global automation leader, SMC Corporation Australia and New Zealand recently introduced its JSB Series angle seat valve, with Rod Ryan, head of field sales SA & strategic projects for SMC ANZ, noting that “angling a valve can offer big benefits”.

“One of the key benefits to customers is the fact that the angle seat structure reduces pressure loss. This is particularly important in a time where every saving counts in boosting company’s bottom line and reducing energy loss,” Ryan continued.

Offering a long service life and large flow rate, the JSB Series is a great choice for steam, air and water applications in a wide range of industries such as water management, diary, food and beverage, and other process controls.

Intelligent design for optimised performance

The JSB Series is an air operated valve, featuring an angle seat structure to minimise pressure loss. It delivers up to three million cycles for steam applications, and up to 10 million cycles in air and water applications.

“Thanks to the JSB’s optimised flow channel shape, a larger flow rate is possible, with a valve flow coefficient of approximately 2.5,” said Ryan.

“The addition of a new scraper function to the squeeze seal inside the valve enables more effective shut off of fluid leakage.

“The guide bushing prevents misalignment of the valve components during operation, and lengthens the life of the squeeze valve.”

The JSB Series is an all-in-one valve with all stainless-steel construction, available with port sizes in 3/8” to 2”. It’s robust and can handle fluids with high temperatures (up to 183°C for steam and 99°C for air and water).

With its compact design (measuring just 166mm in height), a built-in visual indicator and low maintenance requirements, this valve is easy to install and to use.

“The modular design ensures each part of the valve – from the head assembly and body nut, down to the valve element assembly – can be replaced as needed, further simplifying maintenance of the valve,” explained Ryan.

The JSB Series is available in seven size variations, to suit different application requirements, with optical fittings available for pilot and breathing ports.
