Accurate control and reliable operation at all flow conditions with the CCI DRAG® disk stack The DRAG® spray valve disk stack features a modified equal percentage trim characteristic providing very fine temperature control. The disk stack uses disks with more pressure letdown stages near the seat end of the trim (up to 20 stages), and fewer stages near the full-open end of the trim. This provides critical protection of the seat ring while allowing superior temperature control throughout stroke of the valve. Independent and isolated flow paths are utilized to eliminate short circuits between the flow paths. Reliable Long Term Shutoff The DRAG® spray valve uses a hard seat, which resists trash cutting, and a very high seat loading to provide reliable and repeatable long-term shutoff for Figure 4: CCI 100DSV multi-path, multistage trim designs are characterized to provide optimal valve performance at all flow conditions.

very high pressure differentials. The actuator is sized to provide a minimum seat ring loading of 500 lbf per circumferential inch (9 kg/mm). The DRAG® velocity control trim design protects the seat ring and plug surfaces from cutting or pitting due to erosion.

Benefits 1

DRAG® Velocity Control Protects Valve Trim. Up to 20 stages used to limit trim exit velocity to 100 fps or less. Eliminates erosion and cavitation damages.


Improve Heat Rate Efficiencies. The CCI spray valve minimizes lost energy through leakage and lost production which results in significant cost savings.


Reliable and Repeatable Long Term Shutoff Eliminates Leakage. Actuator is sized to provide 500 PLI or more.

CCI DRAG® 100DSV for Spraywater Control Applications

Metal seat ring is used to resist trash damage. The DRAG® velocity control design protects trim from damage. Eliminating spray water leakage prevents excess cooling of main steam and conserves fuel.


Improve Temperature Control. Equal-percentage trim characteristics custom-engineered to meet your plant specifications combined with a long stroke and high actuator resolution to improve control.


Reduce Maintenance Costs. Costly and frequent maintenance procedures are eliminated by DRAG® velocity control, actuator sizing and seat ring design. Erosion is eliminated.


Easy to Service Design. Top entry design minimizes service time, and no welding or inline machining required.
