  • 3. CONTROL VALVES  Control valves are valves used to control conditions such as flow, pressure, temperature, and liquid level by fully or partially opening or closing in response to signals received from controllers that compare a "setpoint" to a "process variable" whose value is provided by sensors that monitor changes in such conditions.
  • 4. CONTROL VALVE SIZING  The control valve shall be of globe body design with single port. The valve trim, shall be suitable for quick removal without any cutting or welding.  Sizing shall be accordance with ANSI/ISA 75.01,01.  Valve outlet velocity does not excesed 8 m/sec for liquid service and 150 m/sec for steam services.
  • 5. CONTROL VALVE SIZING  The valve sizing shall be suitable for obtaining maximum flow conditions with valve opening at approx 80% of total valve stem travel and minimum flow conditions with valve stem travel not less than 10% of total valve stem travel.  All valves shall capable of handling at least 120% of required maximum flow.  Valve body rating shall meet the pressure and temperature requirement as per ANSI B 16.34.
  • 6. VALVE CONSTRUCTION  Conform to requirement of ANSI for dimensions, material thickness and material specification for their respective pressure class.  All valves shall be globe body design and straightway pattern with single or double port or angle body design.  All valves connected to vacuum on down stream side shall be provided with packing suitable for vacuum application (e.g double vee type chevon packing).  Extension bonnets shall be provided when the maximum temperature of flowing fluid is greater than 275 deg c.  If the downstream is subjected to vacuum, flow direction of the fluid shall be to close.
  • 7. TOP GUIDED CONTROL VALVE Top-guided, single-ported valves may be used for tight shutoff applications; however, because these valves are unbalanced, they can require more force from the actuator to achieve shutoff if the flow is under the plug.
  • 8. CAGE GUIDED VALVES  Cage-guided valves have a cylindrical plug guided through a guide.  The increased guiding area is desirable for high pressure drop, high noise, and anticavitation applications  Unbalanced types can provide a tight shutoff if sufficient  For balanced styles, the plug is vented and the process pressure interacts with the top and bottom side of the plug.
  • 9. DOUBLE SEATED CONTROL VALVE  Double-seated control valves are used to a lot of industrial applications due to advantages of reduction in actuator force, a great flow capacity and a deal of slurry fluids.  Double-seated valves cannot provide the same shutoff capability as the single-ported types.
  • 10. Characterized Cages/Trim for Globe valve QUICK OPENING EQUAL PERCENTAGE LINEAR
  • 11. GLAND PACKING  PTFE if fluid temperature is less than 180 deg C.  Graphite if fluid temperature is more than 180 deg C.  All valves connected to vacuum on down stream side shall be provided with packing suitable for vacuum application (e.g double vee type chevon packing). GLAND PACKING
  • 12. TURNDOWN RATIO  The valve-sizing coefficient for globe valves should be selected to limit turndown to a ratio of about 30:1.  This limits the valve opening to approximately 10% of maximum for globe valves with equal percentage trim.
  • 13. CAVITATION  Cavitation is a two stage phenomena with liquid flow.  The first stage is the formation of vapor bubbles in the liquid as the fluid passes through the trim and the pressure is reduced below the fluid's vapor pressure.  The second stage is the collapse of the vapor bubbles as the fluid passes the vena contracta and the pressure recovers and increases above the vapor pressure.  The collapsing bubbles are very destructive when they contact metal parts and the bubble collapse may produce high noise levels.
  • 14. Cavitation  Cavitation in control valves can have four negative effects; • Restricts fluid flow • Causes severe vibrations • Erodes metal surfaces • Generates high noise levels.
  • 15. ANTI CAVITY TRIM  The anti cavity trim of control valve shall be multi stage ,multi path type.  ISA- RP75.23 – 1995, “Considerations for Evaluating Control Valve Cavitation”, Recommended Practice, June 1995  The High FL Factor ( pressure recovery factor) shall be 0.98 or better.
