Micro-ingredient rotary valve for test batches

ACS Valves’ 25th product has arrived!

Introducing the Micro-Ingredient Valve. It’s designed specifically for testing and measuring small batches more accurately than standard valves.

The Micro-Ingredient Valve earns its name. As you can see, it’s not much longer (or wider) than the length of a pen. In other words, it’s very small! Why did we make a micro-valve? Because the small size makes it the ideal choice for test systems and metering small amounts of an ingredient to a larger batch. Available in sizes 1.5 inches, 2 inches, 2.5 inches and 3 inches, the Micro-Ingredient Valve will work for testing pilot conveying equipment to verify and research the pertinent ingredients and processes, dosages, and properties in a multitude of applications.
