Zahroof Valves Inc. (ZVI) develops and markets a unique reciprocating compressor valve based on the Modular Reed Valve technology. The StraightFloTM Valve (SFV) is a drop-in replacement compressor valve that is unique in that the valve assembly is made up of replaceable reed valve modules that are designed such that the gas essentially flows in a straight line through the valve, with very little deviation, resulting in very low losses in the valve.
StraightFlo Valve performs more efficient than its competitors and can significantly reduce emissions and carbon footprints. The metal housing has a 10-year warranty, and valves can easily be serviced on site, without any required machining . Such technical innovations have earned the company various awards and recognitions over the years.
