Machine Concepts is a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative spray valves. We provide complete spray assembly engineering and integration using the latest technologies to improve strip flatness quality and increase mill speeds.
Both our proportional spray valves and media piloted/pulse width modulation on/off spray valves are precision machined and constructed with stainless steel and the highest quality internal components. As a result, our valves offer reliability, easy inspection and maintenance, and long-lasting durability.
The simplified design provides mill operators with easy maintenance while the many advanced features allow for precise spray patterns and superior flow performance.
Advantages of proportional valves vs. on/off valves
Our precision machined coolant or air piloted on/off valves provide continuous or pulsing spray systems in single, double or triple row assemblies for optimal spray performance.
The robust design is maintenance-friendly and features a larger pilot chamber to prevent debris buildup. Multiple size and flow rate options are available.
We also offer complete spray assembly engineering for the most demanding mill applications. System configurations include multiple zones with multiple rows of nozzles controlled independently to provide temperature control where needed throughout the roll. Assemblies include spray valves, nozzle plates, header manifolds and a wire harness designed to suit each mill application.
Machine Concepts provides repair and upgrade services for spray valves, wire plates and assemblies at an affordable cost compared to buying new. We can also retrofit our products into your existing spray systems.
Additionally, our services include repairs and upgrades for USC spray valves and wire plates and building new valves, wire plates and assemblies that are interchangeable with USC products.
