Parker Sporlan Releases New Modulating 3-Way Valves (MTW-9 & -17)

Orlando, FLJanuary 25, 2016– Sporlan Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has released a new-to-market three way valve, referred to as the Modulating 3-Way Valve (MTW), for use with conventional direct expansion air conditioning and refrigeration systems.


The Modulating 3-Way Valve is designed to modulate flow of refrigerant at two ports and divert flow between two separate outlets. The product line features two sizes, the MTW-9 and MTW-17, which cover R-410A flow capacities up to 40 tons (131 kW). These valves are approved for suction, liquid and discharge line uses; including dehumidification, reheat and heat reclaim applications.


The Modulating 3-Way Valve provides improved performance through modulation eliminating refrigerant pulsations (liquid hammer). The high resolution stepper motor provides precise modulation and tight seating when single outlet flow is required. “When compared to other modulating options, the Modulating 3-Way Valve requires fewer valves, reducing piping and wiring complexity and cost and reduced installation time,” said Dustin Searcy, Sporlan Electric Valve Product Manager.


He added, “The Sporlan Pressure Control and Temperature Control can be paired with the valve to provide precise stand-alone control of fluid temperature and pressure as required.”
