Hilton Fixed Cone Valve for Continuous Flow Control in Free Discharge Applications

Hilton Fixed Cone Valves are designed for continuous flow control with free discharge. They are commonly used on reservoirs for water level control and turbine by-pass. The valve’s features and robust construction are designed to provide years of trouble-free service. The unique rib design reduces vibration. Hilton Fixed Cone Valves operates smoothly from zero to 100% capacity without cavitation. Flow discharge coefficient is between 0.80-0.85.

Hilton Fixed Cone Valves are available with a baffled hood design that provides ~ 90% energy reduction compared to 20%-40% reduction for an un-baffled hood design (based on testing performed at the Utah State University Water Research Laboratory).

The Fixed Cone Valve is another example of the extensive engineering and fabrication capabilities of the Hilton brand. Hilton works closely with customers to deliver valves designed for specific applications and fabricated from any weldable alloy.
