N e w Class DBOY-2 Valve Line N o w Available From Leslie Controls, Ltd.

A new line of Class DBOY-2 cage throttling balanced control valves, featuring a cast iron actuator and new packing and gasket materials, is available from Leslie Controls, Inc., Tampa, Fla.

The DBOY-2 valve line is designed especially for use in steam, water, gas and vapor service where high pressure drops are required.

They provide excellent throttling action for accurate process control, plus maximum flow through specially designed ports that assure resistance to cavitation, increased stability and reduced internal friction.

The cast iron actuators provide high thrust and stability at all air loading pressures up to 60 psig for normally open or normally closed valve action. The actuators are interchangeable on many valve sizes, enabling rapid field installation and increased flexibility. A large selection of springs is available to handle a wide range of applications and pressure drops. Seat tightness is precision engineered to provide the same low leakage characteristics as single seated, unbalanced valve designs.

The bonnet gasket is spiral wound 316 stainless steel with asbestos filler for a tight seal between body and bonnet. Minimal leakage between seat and body minimizes the possibility of erosion and prolongs service life. The stainless steel seat ring is type 410 hardened for normal service, with optional stellited surface available for more severe conditions.

Founded in 1900 as The Leslie Company, Leslie Controls has its corporate offices and plant in Tampa.

The company has a network of sales representatives throughout the U.S. and the world, handling a complete line of control valves, pressure reducing and small flow reducing valves, regulators, steam water heaters, instrumentation and viscosity control systems.
