Frequently Asked Questions

What is a control valve?

A control valve is a device that controls the movement, flow direction, temperature and pressure of fluid in a system by opening or closing passageways of a system.

What are control valves used for?

In industrial or hydraulic systems, control valves control the pace of fluids (chemicals, gas, steam, etc) as well direction of flow, pressure and temperature. This enables the system to function efficiently, safety and accurately.

How do control valves work?

In a control valve, a stem (called the modulating element) moves, by means of a valve actuator. It pushes against the seat of the valve to close the passageway. The pushing action is provided by the fluid, or by an internal spring or solenoid. A valve positioner ensures the valve has opened optimally for the desired flow or pressure (this ensures minimal friction and wear to the valve).

What are the different types of control valves?

There are various control valve types, such as sliding stem valves, rotary valves, pinch valves and diaphragm valves. Bosch Rexroth South Africa stocks a range of different types of hydraulic valves, including throttle and double-throttle valves, as well as 2-way control valves.
