Valve and Ejector Applications in the Automotive Industry

Control valves and water ejectors find use in a wide range of standard and specialized automotive industry applications, such as:

  • Paint pretreatment washing operations. Before an automobile can be painted, it must be washed to remove any surface contaminants or residues that can affect the quality of the paint job. The equipment used in these operations—typically heated spray washers—require valves and ejectors to control the flow of the pressurized and heated water streams.  
  • Painting operations. Automobile painting operations utilize various thermal equipment, such as electrostatic paint baths and thermal fluid heated ovens. Valves and ejectors help regulate the flow of thermal fluid through these systems, allowing manufacturers to achieve and maintain the proper thermal conditions.    
  • Tire manufacturing operations. One of the stages of the tire manufacturing process is curing. It utilizes heat and/or pressure to give tires the desired properties (e.g., shape, hardness, and tread pattern). Valves and ejectors help ensure the right temperature and pressure conditions are achieved.
  • Steam/liquid mixing operations. There are many steam/liquid mixing operations involved in the automobile manufacturing process. Due to the nature of these operations, it can be dangerous if the wrong type of equipment is used. Our specialized flanged water ejectors ensure operations proceed efficiently and safely as they eliminate the need for pumps in explosion-prone applications.
