GEMÜ introduces stainless steel globe valve for controlling small volumes
GEMÜ has expanded its range of control valves with the innovative Type GEMÜ 566 globe valve.
The stainless steel globe valve has a valve body in which the control mechanism is already integrated. In addition to a pneumatic actuator, there is also a manually operated version and a motorized version.
By integrating the control mechanism into the valve body, it is possible to subsequently switch from a manual actuation type to an automated actuation type at any time. The particular advantage of this is that the components involved are located outside the medium-wetted area. This means that from the start, the plant operator enjoys a high degree of flexibility with regard to potential changes to their operational processes. The medium-wetted part is separated from the control mechanism by an additional separating diaphragm. The diaphragm is available in EPDM or FPM materials. The investment casting, stainless steel valve body has a threaded socket and is available in the nominal sizes DN 8 to DN 15.
The GEMÜ 566 valve was developed especially for controlling small volumes and provides a flow rate from 63 up to 2500 l/h. For all three actuation types, there are options for optical and electronic position feedback. The motorized version can also be equipped with a positioner. The same applies to the pneumatic actuator, for which a process controller is also available as an optional extra.
