Hilton Fixed Cone Valves are designed for continuous flow control with free discharge. They are commonly used in reservoirs for reservoir 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 (based on testing performed at the Utah State University Water Research Laboratory).
