 Working Principle:
Seat valves are operated by a single-acting, double-acting pneumatic actuator or manual handle. The compressed air is applied to the actuator and the shaft is moved to place the valve in the "open" or "closed" position.
Recommended Inlet:

The seat valves are designed to close against the flow. 

Slow-closing or slow-opening minimizes the water hammer.

Flow Capacity:

The flow coefficient Cv is the volume (in US gallons) of water at 60 °F that will flow per minute through a valve with a pressure drop of 1 psi across the valve. 


VALVE SIZE (at 100% open)
1 1/2" 40
2" 84
3" 190



For other pressure drops than 1 psi the flow can be calculated with the following formula:

Q= Cv x √ ∆p


Q= Flow in GPM
Cv = Flow coefficient.
∆p = Pressure drop in psi over the valve.


 1 1/2" valve has a Cv= 40 GPM with a pressure drop of 1 psi.

For a pressure drop of 2 psi which is the flow?

Q= 40 X √2 = 56 GPM.

Note: The surfaces in contact with a seal determine what type to use. The surface can either be static or dynamic, in motion or without movement. Static seals are usually used when there is no relative motion between mating surfaces. Dynamic seals are the opposite. They are used when there is motion between surfaces or compression loads.  Seal under compression load in combination with high temperatures also affect the properties of elastomers.

Examples: Seat vales (Relief, Shutt-down, Divert and Regulating)

Seat Valves recommended temperatures:

Recommended temperature for short periods of time (15-20 min) EPDM:  260°F, VITON: 285°F
Recommended temperature for short periods of time (15-20 min) EPDM:  260°F, VITON: 285°F


Easy Conversion / Integration:

Our standard design allows an easy conversion to a pneumatic operated valve.

Easy Conversion

The 180º rotation of the pneumatic cylinder of the single-acting actuators allows to have a normally open or normally closed valve.
