Soft Seated Control Valves – A Unique Modular System
Connection Types for Soft Seated Control Valves
The connection options range from an internal thread model (DIN / NPT), a flange (DIN / ANSI), a weld-on end (DIN 11850) connection, ranging through to various aseptic and hygienic clamp fittings (Tri-clamp) and threaded sockets according to DIN 32676, DIN 11851, DIN 11864 and DIN 11853.
Unlimited Application Fields
Soft seated control valves have a bespoke design with the variety of different end connections and a choice of 12 different qualities of rubber tubes, making these versatile valves provide an extremely broad field of applications which is almost unlimited.
Soft Seated Control Valve Features
A soft seated control valve has fantastic features such as their huge weight reduction compared to other valve types such as ball valves, their compact design, and straight through nominal bores for all sizes which enables new applications in various industries and sectors.
In particular for the automation of systems in the food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, the soft seated control valve is a very reliable and lucrative valve solution.
Furthermore, this particular valve type can be used in specific and verified conductive atmospheres in hazardous EX Zones 0, 1, 20, 21, 2, 22.
Why Choose a Soft Seated Control Valve?
Soft seated control valves are the way forward. However, many valve users choose a stainless steel ball valve for food applications because they have been on the market for longer and a ball valve is an old type of technology, plus the ball valve is probably all that the user knows. Soft seated control valves for hygienic and food type applications are a new innovative technology.
Soft seated control valves boast advantages such as:
- 100% clear product flow
- low resistance
- leak free
- no plugging
- extremely light construction
Another decisive benefit in the use of a soft seated control valve compared to conventional valves such as butterfly valves or ball valves, lies in the almost wear-free and absolutely tight shut-off of the product stream. Air operated soft seated control valves benefit from all of the same advantages as above.
