Cleaning sucks.

Here are 5 ways our RunClean™ valves make it suck less -- while improving efficiency, safety, productivity and compliance.

  1. Internal coatings Our factory-applied coatings (such as tungsten) prevent imperfections and surface cavities caused by material wear. They also help to reduce contaminant build up and to improve flow of hard-to-convey materials.

  2. Sloped planes and rounded edges
    We cast slopes and round edges into the valve to ensure material flow, reduce material build-up and prevent dead zones.

  3. Stainless steel housings, cast in North America
    Polished to a No. 4 finish, our stainless steel valves are cast in North America and CNC-machined for precise tolerances. The superior quality and strength of composition and solidification of housing metallurgy prevents stress cracks where contaminants can accumulate.

  4. Glandless, Sleeve-style shaft seal
    Our Teflon shaft seal has a triple barrier design to prevent the cleanup and contamination risk that comes from bearing seal leaks. It also eliminates the need for gland packing and time-consuming pusher plate adjustments.

  5. RotorRails
    Imitated but never duplicated, our RotorRails provide fast disassembly. Using quick release handles, the rotor assembly slides out without tools or heavy lifting.
