Leslie Announces K-Max Rotary Control Valve

Leslie Controls, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of the K-Max Rotary Control Valve, suitable for liquids, gases, steam and slurries. They have greater than 100:1 rangeability and stable, bi-directional flow. The durable steel-case diaphragm actuator gives high thrust, low friction, accurate control and is more fire-resistant than aluminum actuators. K-Max valves have enclosed actuator linkage with gasketed steel covers for safety and corrosion protection.

K-Max valves are available in sizes 1" through 8" with ANSI 150-300-600 ratings in Carbon Steel, 316 Stainless, Alloy 20, Hastelloy C and Titanium. Full size trim and three reductions are available in all valve sizes. Leslie supports the K-Max marketed previously through Kieley & Mueller, DeZurik and IVC with parts and service. K-Max valves are available for quick delivery from Leslie's QD program in 1-6" wafer, CS or SS bodies.

 To obtain more information on the K-Max Rotary Control Valve or for more information on Leslie Controls, Inc. products or services, contact Leslie Sales at (800) 439-4485 or sales@lesliecontrols.com.
