Automated On/Off and Modulating Control Valves.
Automated valves can be operated with electric, pneumatic, electro-pneumatic, and electro-hydraulic powered actuators. Actuators allow valves to be operated automatically by a control system or manually from a remote location. Valve automation brings significant advantages to a plant in the areas of process quality, efficiency, safety, and productivity. Click on the desired valve type to continue with your selection.

Select Angle Valves
Angle-Seat Valves are operated with a piston actuator. These compact pneumatic valves are ideal for on-off valve applications and an excellent alternative to more expensive automated valves. High flow rates are obtained with the streamlined flow path. These reliable, low maintenance valves can be fitted with a comprehensive range of accessories for positioning, indication, and manual override.

Select Ball Valves
Ball valves are reliable and simple to use as a shutoff valve or flow metering valve. Just a quarter turn of the handle opens or closes the valve. Handle position lets you "see" the valve's position.

Select Control Valves
Control valves modulate the flow of fluids in flow, pressure, level, and temperature control systems. They consist of three main parts: a valve body, actuator, and positioner. The positioner, through the actuator, drives the valve in proportion to a control signal. Various types of valve and actuator combinations are available to suit most process control applications.

Select Diaphragm Valves
Diaphragm valves have excellent shut-off and flow control characteristics. A flexible molded diaphragm regulates flow, provides tight shutoff, and isolates the fluid from the environment. The valve consists of the body, diaphragm, and handwheel assembly. Their simple design and wide choice of materials make them ideal for corrosive, abrasive, and sanitary services.

Select Solenoid Valves
Solenoid Valves are simple electrically operated devices. The valve plug is held in place by a spring. When electric power is applied to the solenoid (Energized), the current draw through the coil generates an electromagnetic force which opposes the spring, causing the plug to change position. When power is taken away (De-energized), the spring returns the plug to the normal position.
