Safe and Reliable

K Controls designs and manufactures products that provide precise, safe and reliable networking, monitoring or control of actuated valves used in the process industries. Many applications are in hazardous or hostile environments. The company operates a quality system that meets the requirements of BS EN ISO9001: 2008. All our products conform to standards that will ensure compliance during your plant safety audits.We can also supply your positioner requirements. Specialised advice, design excellence and an ability to exactly customise products to match your requirements all help minimise the time and money spent on product sourcing, specification, installation, commissioning and maintenance. K Controls has also developed two valves for specialised applications: The K44 “Checktite” three piece swing check valve has been designed to complement three piece ball valves and is used on chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical process lines as well as gas, oil and water applications. It is used wherever unwanted flow reversal has to be prevented.Available in 316 stainless steel or carbon steel with stainless internals, in sizes from 0.25’’ (8mm) to 2’’ (50 mm); the K44 “Checktite” employs a three piece body and end design, secured by four bolts (as widely used with ball valves). This design facilitates quick and simple installation and enables the valve body to be swung away from the line for easy inspection, cleaning or maintenance. Both the cracking pressure and pressure drop of the K44 are significantly lower than those of most other check valves. K Controls has also developed a Z Series stainless steel butterfly valve for high temperature automotive exhaust gas applications. The Z Series valve is frequently used to regulate the back pressure of exhaust gases during engine testing.

The 40R is A high performance actuator which combines reliability and long life and is based on the opposed double rack and pinion principle utilising piston support rods to minimise friction and wear between pistons and body bore.

There are twelve sizes of Norbro double acting or fail safe spring return pneumatic actuators providing a torque range of 11 to 4617 Nm (at an operating pressure of 5.5 bar). This enables efficient and therefore economical torque matching.

A wide range of ancillary equipment can be fitted to meet the most exacting customer requirements. This is an area where Flow Control Solutions Ltd and Worcester has considerable experience and we would be pleased to discuss any process problems. Since the mid-Sixties the Norbro name has been recognised as the leading quarter turn actuator for industry. As proof of this, Norbro pneumatic actuators can be found in a range of applications as diverse as the petrochemical industry, food and beverage, steel production, pharmaceuticals and plastics manufacturing
