Our current lubricant valves have the following advantages over their predecessors, developed by Mr. Jerkel, some of which are still used by our competitors:
- Dead space free
- Pre-controlled opening and closing
- faster maintenance
Based on these advantages, we have also adopted the design features for all our other valves: circulation valves, pressure build-up valves, purge valves, insert valves and the new integrated spray-mixing blocks.
The design principle and the advantages of dead space free valves can best be explained in a comparison of the valves:
Plate spray heads are ideal for rapid and reproducible spraying of dies in the forging industry. The Jerko plate spray heads are designed and manufactured for each die size in close consultation with the customer. By simply changing the spray plates, the spray pattern can be individually adapted to the contours of the dies.
The swirl pots and swirl disks used by Jerko and precisely matched in terms of geometry distribute the lubricant previously injected into the air flow with extremely high dynamics under the spray plate so that an exact spray pattern is created in all areas of the spray plate.
