Moving valve trays

Valve trays are standard trays using moving valves and fixed valves in the openings for the upcoming gas stream. The trays are suitable for a wide range of applications, where turndown ratio is critical.

Moving valve trays with their variable vertical movements makes this type of valve tray suitable for a wide variety of processes, depending on the leg length of the valve. With an high hydraulic turndown ratio, moving tray valves reduces the tendency to weep in low-pressure conditions by closing of the valves. By using different kind of materials for the valves and installion of the valves on the deck, turndown ratio of the moving valve trays will even increase more.

Due to our in-house engineering and production, we ensure the moving valve trays are designed and produced to achieve your optimum performance.
Together we achieve optimum mass transfer performance. How can we assist you?


  • 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
  • Cheaper construction than bubble cap trays


  • Applications where T/D is more critical compared to sieve trays
  • In case of regular process adjustments
