The Inbal Automatic Control Valve from HMA Flow & Industrial is a pressure-operated, sleeve-actuated valve designed from basic concepts, with a built-in actuator to function as a control valve in fire protection. The Inbal Valve utilises the unique NMMP (No Moving Mechanical Parts) design to ensure a long life of dependable operation. The small physical dimensions and the low weight enable the Inbal valve and control trim assembly to occupy much less space and significantly reduce the time and labour needed for installation.
The Inbal valve withstands pressure surges, and is entirely resistant to false tripping. Opening is quick, yet smooth, virtually eliminating water hammer.
