Valvulería Barcelona: control valves

Valves are one of the main control instruments we have in the industrial sector. Because of their design and the materials with which they are manufactured, the valves control the passage of liquids and gases, whatever their nature. In the market there are a great variety of designs and sizes that adapt to the needs and requirements of each client. We must bear in mind that, for example, in the machinery destined to pack food or medicines, a total tightness is required in all its conduits, since the accumulation of food or medicines can give rise to the contamination of the whole product. In other cases, possible leaks are not of major importance.

The control valves for general normal are the last element in a control loop installed in the production line. It is formed by two differentiated parts: the actuator (driving part) and the body. The actuator or motor can be pneumatic, electric or hydraulic, although approximately 90% of the control valves that exist in the industry, are driven by a pneumatic motor. And the body is provided with a plug or plug and other parts that serve to connect the valve with the pipes. This joint can be carried out by welded or threaded flanges.
