Description

Weir Power and Industrial offers the innovative X-Stream trim, a technically advanced severe service control valve designed for controlling cavitation, high pressure, and high noise levels in extreme process conditions.

The X-Stream trim has been specially designed to eliminate cavitation, erosion, and noise for severe and problematic services.

It features a unique flow path design utilizing a multitude of staggered cylinders, and is the first of its type to provide complete 3D-flow control.

This revolutionary and innovative design uses a combination of flow visualisation techniques, along with proven computational fluid dynamics (CFD) on localized areas of excessive turbulence and velocity, which are often the main source of noise and erosion problems, and effectively eliminates them. It also successfully elimates areas of recirculating flow, which is a significant cause of cavitation.
