Yarway 5300 Series ARC Valve

For Centrifugal Pump Protection

The 5300 Series Automatic Recirculation Control ARC valve performs four separate functions within the pumping circuit, all within one compact body.
Features
Saves Power Costs - Eliminates the need for continuous recirculation to cool the pump. Saves System Engineering Time - Includes reverse flow prevention, low flow detection, recirculation flow control, and recirculation flow pressure reduction. - Eliminates multiple vendor complexities associated with systems combining various pneumatic, thermal and mechanical components. Saves Installation and Maintenance Costs - Needs no electrical wiring, plant or instrument air. - Eliminates other components of a conventional system. - Eliminates multiple pressure reducing orifices and capillary tubes. - Eliminates duplication created by two control valves in a series one for pressure reduction and one for tight shut-off. Reduces Downtime - Minimizes the problems of high velocity wiredrawing and cavitation erosion common to high pressure drop service.

Sizes
3" to 12" main discharge feed. 1" to 3" recirculation discharge. Flanged or Butt Welding end connections.

Pressures
Classes 600, 900, 1500, 2500.

Yarway 5300 Series ARC Valve


For Centrifugal Pump Protection

Automatic Recirculation Control Valve


During critical low load periods, centrifugal feed pumps need a reliable recirculation system to prevent pump instability and overheating. Because many such systems are constructed of a number of components, the systems can become both complex and costly, requiring substantial outlays for design, installation and maintenance. Yarways 5300 ARC valve, on the other hand, is a complete system within itself. It actually performs four separate functions within the pumping circuit all within one compact body. Essentially, the 5300 ARC valve is a check valve installed in the main line. But it also acts as the sensing and powering element which pilots the operation of a recirculation control valve. The sensing system responds to changes in flow rather than pressure. The control valve incorporates a pressure reducing device that divides recirculation flow and guides the resulting streams through successive 90 turns to dissipate the destructive energies of high pressure while controlling fluid velocity. But perhaps even more importantly, the 5300 ARC valve recirculates only that flow needed to cool a feed pump at critical times of low load rather than permitting a continuous recirculation flow. The valve therefore saves the electrical power that continuous recirculation would consume, which can cost several thousand dollars per year.

One Valve Four Functions


Flow sensing that actuates the pilot or the bypass control valve which permits passage of a limited flow of cooling liquid during low load periods. This flow is delivered to the cascade element which dissipates the energy for quiet, safe delivery to the deaerator, condenser or other low pressure sink. Check valve prevents reverse flow through the feed pump.

Yarway 5300 Series ARC Valve


For Centrifugal Pump Protection

How it Works
The ARC valve is installed in the pump discharge line in the position of the main check valve it replaces. It is adaptable to horizontal or vertical piping and to either horizontal or vertical upward flow. Flanged or welded ends are optional to suit specifications. Decreasing flow through the valve causes the spring loaded disc to move toward its seat. At a flow rate determined by the minimum flow requirement through the pump, the disc triggers the pilot valve through the lever. This vents the pressure on the head of the piston. Pressure acting on the opposite side of the piston opens the bypass valve, permitting flow through the multi-stage cascade element. The flow rate through the bypass valve is equal to the minimum flow requirement of the pump. The directional changes of the successive helical flutes, as well as the multiple orifices, provide for the absorption of pressure energy. The bypass valve will remain in an open position as long as the pilot valve is open. This corresponds with the position the disc assumes at flow rates between an established low flow and no flow through the main check valve. As the flow rate exceeds the minimum flow rate, the rising disc allows the pilot valve to close; pressure entering the chamber over the piston through the annular clearance around the pilot.

How to Specify
Centrifugal pump minimum flow protection shall be provided by a self-contained multi-function valve which requires no external source of power. The valve shall provide the functions of: 1. Spring loaded check valve to prevent pump damage from reverse flow. 2. Flow sensor that will activate bypass valve at the specified minimum flow. 3. Bypass flow control valve, sized to provide the minimum required pump flow. 4. Pressure reducing device to effectively reduce high pump discharge pressures to low receiver tank/sump pressures. Actuation of the bypass valve shall be by direct contact of the switching mechanism to the check valve disc. No levers or linkages shall be utilized. Bypass trim travel shall have a 1:1 proportional ratio with the flow sensing disc travel to provide truly optimum modulated flow control. One piece operating element shall be preferred for maximum reliability. The bypass trim shall also be capable of providing extended bypass control service. Service limitations or manual bypass lines for extended bypass service shall not be acceptable. The ARC valve shall be designed and constructed in accordance with ANSI B16.34. Pressure reduction in the bypass shall be the vendors responsibility to control flashing, cavitation and choked flow conditions both within the trim and at the valve discharge. Sealing surfaces in trim shall be located in an area where it will not be prone to erosion and/or cavitation damage. Valves shall be flow tested by the manufacturer, and certified performance curves shall be provided with the valve shipment.
