  • Throttle Body of Unusual Proportions

    We just finished up our big throttle body build. 4 barrels flowing over 30K CFM. A little porky at 170lbs each though...Now we are looking for a manifold with the Holly 1050000 Mega Dominator pattern.

    That's a small fortune in material alone! Great work!

        I think maybe you should register a new trademark called "Throttle Buckets" ...
        Can you disclose the use for these TB's?

            The valves flow air at 3psi into large chambers with water in them... Thats about all I can say right now until my customer gives me the all clear signal.
            Throttle bucket is kinda catchy! Plays into the application as well.

              I've seen similar set ups in plants that control the flow of steam I believe - with very fast electronically controlled actuators, neat stuff.

                Steam might be kind of painful. They are computer controlled but have Pneumatic actuators instead of electric. They are pretty fast valves so we keep our hands clear when we test them!
