Aircraft Fire Trainer with co-ax valves

Flow Factor and  co-ax® valves application

 HERE!

Aircraft Fire Trainer

Aircraft Fire Trainer are designed to recreate a series of different emergency scenarios, including interior and exterior incident fires and large-scale fuel spill fires on airplanes, all managed by an adjacent control tower and PC control station. Inside, a series of fires can be accessed by a series of doors on multiple levels, helping to develop realistic rescue scenarios.
Aircraft Fire Trainers are fully programmable, and automatically respond to the application of extinguishing media, for a realistic fire response.
Fire simulations utilize clean burning propane. Alternately, "dual-fueled" fire simulations are available that burn either kerosene for maximum realism or propane for environmental compliance.






Summary
co-ax® valves are used to release propane or liquid fuel to the plane mock-up shown in the picture. The fuel is ignited and the fire is extinguished by fire fighting trainees. They use water to extinguish the flames. Water also keeps the mock-up from distorting. The co-ax® valves are submerged under the gravel and water in the bottom of the pool.

Why are co-ax® valves the preferred choice?

  • Positive shut-off.
  • Fast open/closing speed  < 100 milliseconds required.
  • Compact size.
  • Valves (externally controlled) can be buried in a pit.

Typical co-ax® valves being used in this application

  • VMK 20 NC
  • VFK 25 NC
  • MK 10 NC 1E

co-ax® valves for polyol applications

co-ax® valves for polyol applications


co-ax® valves being used in this application

  • PCS-1 10, PCS-1 15, PCS-2 10, PCS-2 15, PCS-3 15, PCB-1 10, PCD-1 10 - cartridge valves, externally controlled KB 15 direct acting valves
  • VMK-H 15, VMK-H 15 DR, VMK-H 20, VMK-H 25, VSV-M 50


co-ax® valves are used to inject polyol, which then blends together with isocyanates to create a chemical compound called polyurethanes.
The mixture of the chemicals form molds for many different applications, which are used to create mattresses, foam insulation for refrigerators and freezers, home and automotive seats, elastomeric shoe soles, fibers (e.g. Spandex), and adhesives.
Isocyanates, when exposed to air, tend to form crystals that generate premature wear in valves, especially those containing abrasive fillers and they are equally destructive to the seals and seat.
Multiple co-ax® valves have been designed and sold for polyol applications. The fast actuation speeds of the co-ax® valve combined with high cycle life and virtually no maintenance are key advantages for this application.











Why are co-ax® valves the preferred choice?

  • Fast actuation
  • Engineered for long life (high cycle life)
  • Pressure balanced design

co-ax valves for blow molding applications

Flow Factor and co-ax valves can solve many industrial applications with the co-ax coaxial valve line.  Robust and works.


co-ax® valves offer accuracy, repeatability and fast actuation for blow molding applications


co-ax valves for blow molding and industrial processes


VMK 10 DR NC









Blow molding is a manufacturing process where hollow plastic items are formed - in this case, plastic bottles. This specific blow molding machine uses an externally controlled (air operated) co-ax valve to operate. The air (500 psi) flows from port B to port A to form the bottle; once the plastic bottle is formed, the valve closes and the air is exhausted from port A to port C through a muffler.
Blow molding of plastic bottles requires air pressure control that is exact, repeatable and fast acting. Downtime can be devastating and have a costly impact to all manufacturers. Most conventional valves struggle to offer accuracy, repeatability and fast actuation for the toughest applications. As a result, premature failures and operational problems can occur. These can easily be prevented by using a co-ax valve.
The externally controlled (air operated) co-ax® valve is pressure balanced with operating conditions that can be customized with suitable seat and seal materials for virtually any applications. They are designed to be low maintenance and durable for a wide variety of applications, making them the best choice for systems that require high performance and reliable valves with predictable opening and closing speeds.

Why are co-ax® valves the preferred choice?

  • Reduce downtime and maintenance cost
  • Engineered for long life (high cycle life)
  • Pressure balanced design
  • Adjustable opening and closing speeds

Submersible co-ax® valves

Flow Factor Sells

Submersible co-ax® valves


Valve failure is a persistent threat to valve manufacturers and their customers when it comes to submerging a valve in water, particularly in seawater. The consequences are much worse compared to standard installations that can be more easily reached. Given the challenges that sub-marine environments present such as difficult access, valve corrosion and frequent maintenance, the submersible co-ax® valves are engineered for high cycle and fast actuation plus long, reliable and leak-free performance in aggressive environments.
Submersible co-ax® valves meet performance, safety and reliability expectations in deep water and harsh environments and are designed for depths of 50 feet and deeper upon request. co-ax® valves inc. has been the leader in valve technology for almost 60 years and continues to develop ways to innovative and handle the most specific and difficult applications. Companies throughout the industry have used co-ax® valves in harsh marine environments and continue to trust our dependability in the most demanding valve applications.
