What is a Valve?
Valves can be used in a wide range of industrial applications. Valves switching and blocking process, diverse flow, bleed or vent process, regulate a flow by adjustment of the seat-stem orifice or can stop a flow or process flowing in the wrong direction. The actuation of the valves can be done manually, pneumatically, hydraulic or electronically.
Types of Valves
Pressure control valves/regulators can be found in Product Gauge in a separate product category "Pressure control instruments".
Many types of systems contain valves with different functions. A valve is a small part of the design of an application/ system. In process units common applications are pressure, temperature or flow measurement, steam systems, mechanical seal systems for the supply of seal gas for rotating equipment, shut off valves in safety systems to shut off flow in case of an emergency, purge panels for pneumatic actuation of multiple actuated process valves, valve control panels for the offshore industrie in platforms or subsea applications, multi stream sample selection valves and many more.
