Posted by Baelz North America on Apr 1, 2017 12:34:00 PM

Regulating the flow of a fluid by varying the size of the opening through which the chilled fluid passes, chilled water control valves are key components in fluid pipelines. In general, control valves consist of an electronic controller, which houses the modulating elements; a positioner, which determines the degree to which the valve opens; and an actuator, which initiates the mechanical movement of the controlling element. As a critical part of any fluid pipeline, the control valve helps regulate the fluid flow between the minimum requirement and the maximum installed capacity of the pipeline. These valves are often referred to as final control elements.
