KCD manufactures replacement deaerator trays and spray valves for most past and present deaerator suppliers. The trays and spray valves are upgraded designs by Deaerator Solutions and have been designed to provide the same performance, capacity, pressure drop, and spray pattern as the original parts, with a proven 20 year design life.
KCD’s spray valves are investment cast of type 316 stainless steel, hydraulically balanced and provided with Teflon stem guides to deliver a longer life span and quiet operation. The highly durable spray valves have been designed to withstand flow fluctuations from 0% to 200% of design.

KCD trays are offered in stamped and riveted designs, recommended by HEI, and have been designed with tray locking tabs to ensure tray stability under upset conditions.
