LowFlow Valve used to be a part of Jordan Valve – a company that sold pressure regulators, back pressure regulators, control valves, temperature regulators and a variety of accessories.
In 2008, the decision was made to put more emphasis on Jordan Valve’s fractional flow valves, hence Low Flow Valves. In March 2009, Low Flow stood on it’s own to become Richards Industries sixth product line.
LowFlow control valves are often used in a laboratory or pilot plant applications. Installations such as these frequently require valve trim changes in order to meet varying flow requirements for a given application. We understand the value in manufacturing a product designed with this flexibility in mind. That is why all LowFlow control valves offer a multitude of Cv’s and flow characteristics in every line size. In addition, every LowFlow control valve comes with our Quick Change trim design. This includes seats that thread into the valve body, as opposed to being machined into it. Plus, our free-floating plug uses a bayonet connection to the stem for simple “pop off, pop on” plug changes. Not only do our control valves require no special tools for trim changes, our bolted body design means you don’t even have to take the valve out of line for trim changes or maintenance.
At LowFlow we’ve broadened the idea of what “typical” means. While some manufacturers fill a niche with their products, we’ve proven our mettle across an incredibly diverse range of industries and applications. LowFlow has successfully operated from cryogenic to temperatures above 1000 degrees F. We control steam, gases, liquids, and even VOC’s with our bellows design. We realize application challenges are not limited to just temperature or utilities. At LowFlow Monel, Hastelloy, Alloy 20, Titanium, Kynar, and Inconel are just a few of the materials we offer to address your material compatibility challenges.
Richards Industries is the parent company of six other distinct industrial product lines: Steriflow Valve – sanitary regulators and control valves; Steriflow Food & Beverage – sanitary valves specifically for the food and beverage markets; Jordan Valve – regulators and control valves; Marwin Valve – ball valves and automated products; Hex Valve – instrument valves and manifolds; and Bestobell Steam Traps – steam traps and steam specialty equipment.
