Klinger Piston Valves

The Kinger Piston Valves are designed for automation using electro-mechanic or pneumatic actuators. They are reliable, leak-tight shut off and align in line and to the atmosphere. And because of its unique robust construction principle, it has excellent regulation of flow which make it durable and hence optimized life cycle costs. Most importantly, it is maintenance free due to its slightest emissions (TA-Luft, EPA) which lead to increase plant efficiency and reduce loss of operating media.

There are 3 main types of Kinger Piston Valves and they are KVN, KVMN and KVSN. The Kinger Piston Valves are widely used in many operating media, for example in the following areas:

  • Steam and superheated water
  • Miscellaneous types of gases which include Oxygen,
    Hydrogen, Nitrogen and etc.
  • Heat transfer oils
  • Chemicals

Fields of Application:
  • District heating
  • Energy producing
  • Refinery
  • Steel production
  • Petrochemical
  • Chemistry
  • Production of tobacco
  • Food and beverage
  • Pulp and paper

Important Note Regarding Operating Limits:
Please note that the maximum operating temperature of each KLINGER piston valve depends on the respective operating pressure as well as on the materials of body or sealing. The pressure and temperature limits are shown in the P-/T-diagrams.
