Flashing Solution

EroSolve Flashing solution maximises valve performance

Flashing is the boiling of a fluid caused by the pressure being lower than its vapor pressure when passing through a valve

Reduce valve erosion

If left unchecked, flashing will reduce the operational performance and lifespan of the valve which is why IMI Critical Engineering has created a new solution, EroSolve Flashing, to cope with flashing conditions. This solution can replace the whole valve or just the trim as needed. EroSolve Flashing solutions will reduce valve erosion and operational costs, resulting in better performance, less maintenance, and a longer valve lifespan.

Our custom designed EroSolve Flashing solutions can reduce the total cost of ownership by up to 40%, delivering improved flow control, and facilitating easier maintenance.

What is flashing?

Flashing is a destructive phenomenon that occurs in many industries that use steam processes. Flashing occurs when the pressure of a fluid passing through a valve is lower than the same substance’s vapour pressure. This causes the fluid to boil – otherwise known as ‘flashing’. Flashing can both ‘choke’ the valve, reducing flow capacity through it, and can damage the valve itself through severe erosion.

EroSolve Flashing solutions means lower ownership cost, improved flow control, easier maintenance.
