Control Valves are elements used in process control loops to adjust variables such as flow, liquid levels, pressure, etc… These devices can modulate the flow varying degrees between minimal flow and full capacity in response to a signal from an external control device.

Control valves essentially consist of a valve and an actuator to achieve the desired controlling effect, essentially by throttling the flow. To modulate the flow, a valve plug moves in relation to the seat located within the valve body. The valve plug is attached to a stem connected to the actuator, which can be pneumatically, electrically or hydraulically operated.

Selection of a control valve is primarily dependent on the service conditions and necessary load characteristics of the application and FCA engineering team must select the valve according to this principle. The technical department of FCA offers control valve engineering for optimum valve sizing according to the working conditions, providing a wide range of designs able to efficiently meet customer specifications. Our product range consists of globe type valve, segmented, axial and butterfly valve designs which are capable to provide an extended range of Cv values, for valve sizes up to 48” and pressures up to class 2500#. Different trims designs can be selected in order to achieve the desired conditions in all cases.
