Aluminum Industry Solutions - Poppet Valves

ROSS Poppet valves are the valve technology of choice for the Smelter Industry.  With proven long-life, reliability and unsurpassed performance, the ROSS Poppet has proven itself over many decades in the challenging and unforgiving smelter environment.  Overwhelming shifting force in each direction is the key to the ROSS Poppet.  Being a true poppet, its perpendicular face seal design delivers self-cleaning and self-compensating sealing to minimize leakage (~ zero) compared to any other internal valve construction on the market.  Alumina dust and other pipe debris is no match for the ROSS Poppet.

Metal poppet

ROSS poppet valves have positive sealing with no sliding action to prevent damage and wear. They are also self-cleaning and dirt tolerant thanks to the smallest flow-through area across the poppet’s seal and seat which produces a high-enough velocity to blow out all dirt and foreign matter. Plus, the valve is self-compensating for wear by automatically changing stroke length due to height changes in the valve seal from burnishing. These valves are designed for repeatability, high-temperature service, high speed, and high-shift consistency over the life of the valve.
