Control Valve Range Now Includes 6- and 8-Inch Sizes

September 20, 2010

The general service control valve is used in a wide range of industries. The valves are easy to maintain and do not require any special tooling due to the ‘clamp in seat’ design, resulting in reduced downtime and cost of ownership. The control valve range has been extended to include valve sizes 6- and 8-inch. The number of options has also been extended to ensure the valve can be optimized for the specific requirements of a customer application. Pneumatic piston actuators have been added to the diaphragm and electric actuator ranges. The free float design provides the user with longer stem seal life and better valve shut-off performance. Also, the valve now features better capacities and a balanced trim option for high differential pressures.
