Evaluate Valve Components and Design to Perfect Your Flow PathIDEX Health & Science

    How Well Do You Know Your Valve?

    We’ll Get Up Close with Your Valve to Detect the Slightest Imperfections

    Physical characterization of valve components is a critical piece of understanding the performance of your flow path. Looking closely at your valve’s components, especially the sealing faces, can lead to better insight into the workings of the design and help assess performance. IDEX Health & Science utilizes sophisticated in-house equipment to get up close and personal with your valve during testing—locating the smallest scratches and imperfections.

    Technology we use to analyze valves:

    • A white-light interferometric based optical profilometer
    • Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
    • Additionally, we partner with certified outside laboratories for even more advanced analyses including Tunneling Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Focused Ion Beam Milling (FIB)

    surface analysis of valve rotor seal

    By leveraging our powerful tools, we can optimize your valve and flow path by:

    • Evaluating valve components to understand the impact of seal wear
    • Troubleshooting and understanding of valve material inconsistencies
    • Examining wear characteristics to determine the best design of flow path
    • Get insight into the workings of the design to help assess the performance

    Partner with us to offer the highest value, shortest lead-time design considering material, design, manufacturability, and reliability for your custom rotary valve project.
