Maximum rangeability. Minimal noise and vibration.

Maximum rangeability. Minimal noise and vibration.

Engineered by the world leader in critical service control valves, the dBX Shield valve brings the greatest rangeability of any valve in its class. It can withstand extreme pressure differentials and control excessive fluid velocities, for the highest flow control available.

Pipeline noise can reach up to 115 dBA at its source—nearly as intense as a jet engine. As population growth brings people closer to pipelines, it also brings new challenges for noise attenuation. The dBX Shield valve can reduce pipeline noise down to just 60–85 dBA, the equivalent of conversation, delivering unmatched protection to personnel and nearby populations.

Operations and budget-friendly.

With the dBX Shield valve, you save money from day one. Its patented DRAG™ velocity-control technology significantly reduces noise and vibration—eliminating the need to bury the valve deep underground or enclose it inside an unsightly structure. The dBX Shield valve is always easy to get to—making visual inspections and maintenance easier than ever.

High performance. Low maintenance.

Valve damage from erosion, abrasion, and vibration are all a result of excessive velocity. Outfitted with IMI CCI’s state-of-the-art DRAG™ technology, the dBX Shield valve addresses valve damage at the source—by controlling fluid velocity. The result: less vibration, less maintenance, and longer operating life.

Adding value with additive manufacturing.

Our transformative additive manufacturing process makes the impossible possible. It simplifies fabrication while enabling us to engineer complex geometries. With additive manufacturing, we can design each valve for maximum performance—with the precise number of passages and stages required to meet your unique operating conditions.
