Emerson’s valve/actuator system improves temperature control
New system can accurately control the temperature of water, oils, steam, and other industrial fluids.
Emerson Process Management has released the Fisher GX 3-way control valve and actuator system. The new system can accurately control the temperature of water, oils, steam, and other industrial fluids. Applications include heat exchangers and lubricating skids. The flow cavity of the GX 3-Way valve body can provide stable flow and reduce process variability and is suitable for temperature and pH control applications. The valve is multi-faceted in its ability to cover flow mixing and flow splitting applications with no extra parts. It features side-port and bottom-port common trim. The robust way valve package addresses space limitations of the OEM industry. It meets requirements of EN and ASME standards and comes with a complete accessory package, including the FIELDVUE DVC2000 integrated digital valve controller.
