  • Higher capacity and T/D compared to sieve trays
  • Good efficiency over a wide operating range
  • Strong mechanical construction
  • Very suitable for fouling applications, no moving parts
  • Variable valve size and opening

Moving valve trays


  • Higher T/D compared to sieve trays
  • Broader operating range in combination with light and heavy valves
  • Robust and approved design
  • High efficiency over a wide operating range through optimum vapor-liquid contact
