Leicester-based Northvale Korting has designed, developed and manufactured a range of diaphragm-operated control valves for over a quarter of a century. These control valves are generally specified for use within national and international industrial plants to handle a range of process applications, for example flow or control or cessation of flow, pressure, temperature, level or volume. This is achieved by the full or partial opening/closing of the control valve.
Northvale Korting is committed to a program of on-going review and development of its control valves’ design. This reflects customer-feedback and so, unsurprisingly, there is a drive for the integration of common components. This range of valves has a fully reversible actuator for direct or reverse operation.
The pages which follow on from here give details of the operation of the Northvale Korting range of the two and three way control valves and the unique Paragon 2 stage trim which significantly enhances the control performance of the valves with a hundred to one turndown.
Our fully computer aided design department will design and specify valves for a wide range of process applications. Supported by a fluid flow test laboratory Northvale development engineers can quickly carry out live testing on valves up to 200mm to verify performance characteristics, Kv ratings and empirical design concepts.
The Company operates a real time fully integrated computer controlled manufacturing system, ESCOPE, which maintains total control over all company activities and in particular material supply, stock control and production planning to ensure that we can supply our customers exact requirements quickly and on time.
