Emerson Process Management says its Fisher Control-Disk Valve is a high-performance butterfly valve offering twice the standard control range. This technology provides an economical alternative to more expensive segmented ball valves and globe valves, especially in larger line sizes. The Fisher Control-Disk valve is reliable and has low maintenance requirements. That translates to higher availability, especially when the device is paired with a Fisher spring-and-diaphragm actuator and Fieldvue digital valve controller. This assembly can capture and deliver diagnostic data to AMS ValveLink software, providing an accurate picture of valve, actuator, and digital valve controller performance. www.Fisher.com
