Because of its nearly straight-through flow passage, the “Y” style body is less flow restrictive than a normal globe-style body. This permits less pressure to be converted into velocity as the fluid passes through the seat, resulting in a lower valve recovery factor and higher capacity.
Mark Eight’s straight-through design generates less valve and piping turbulence which significantly reduces harmful noise and vibration levels.
