Hand Valves - Hand Regulating (Expansion Valves)

Hand Reg. BW R/A & S/T


RFF hand-regulating valves can be supplied with a material certificate for body and bonnet which guarantees the impact strength at -50°C.
RFF hand-regulating valves are constructed  of low temperature carbon steel with stainless steel spindles and sealed by two O-rings with a special oil filled groove which provides a complete gas tight seal.

The O-rings can be replaced when the spindle is back-seated fully. Maintenance of the O-rings can be carried out without shutting down the plant.
RFF have redesigned the hand regulating valve Seat. The regulation of liquid flow is carried out by restricting the orifice size by the conical (cone) underneath the Seat. The new model has a new PTFE Seat which can be used to close the Regulating valve completely.  
Hand regulating valves can be identified by a series of two grooves machined into the vertical bonnet surface. They are painted mauve in colour.
Hand-regulating valves have a normal maximum flow-rate which depends on their nominal diameters, but they can be fitted with special cones to give a higher-than-standard flow-rate.  
The new Hand Regulating Valves can be  described as straight through. Angle versions are possible for sizes DN  15, 25 and 40mm only. The angle valve dimensions are identical to the angle shut off valve sizes.
By using valves fitted with caps on installations using odourless refrigerant extra security is ensured. Gas refrigerant is contained under the cap which is manufactured with small hole drilled under  the gasket. When the cap is unscrewed, any build-up of refrigerant gas inside the cap will escape through this hole and can be heard as a whistling noise. This is an indication that the O-rings in the gland nut have been damaged or are in poor condition. All hand-regulating valves can be fitted with handwheels or caps.

Cone Sizing
Cones can be identified by holes on the under side of the seat.
