Self Operated Temperature Regulating Valve for Industrial Process Control



A temperature controller that does not require a transmitter to provide an input signal, needs no electric power to operate, and requires little to no maintenance or attention while it does its job? A self operated temperature regulating valve is just that. Ideal for heating or cooling applications, the self operated valve is driven by a filled system that applies force to the valve stem, providing automatic response to changes in the process temperature.

There are numerous application scenarios for this valve type, along with superior design features that contribute to reliable operation and longevity. The video provides all the details. Share your process control challenges with specialists in product application. Combining your process expertise with their experience in applying products to meet application requirements will produce effective solutions.

Fields of endeavor often develop their own lexicon, with terms having very specific meanings as they are applied to the trade. Process measurement and control is no different in that respect.

When I find a comprehensive list of terms used in a field in which I have interest, it gets saved for inevitable future reference. One company, Absolute Process Instruments (API or Aπ), has consolidated terms used in the description of various aspects of process signal conditioners, providing a useful definition of each. It is shared below for you to use.

Reach out to application experts with your process signal conditioning requirements and challenges. The combination of your process knowledge and their product application expertise will produce effective solutions.
