Baelz North America is a distributor of a broad selection of high-quality control components and systems. One of our core product offerings is control valves, which are available in two-way and three-way models with electrical and pneumatic operation.
Valves are mechanical or electromechanical devices designed to regulate and/or redirect the flow of fluids through process heating systems by partially or completely blocking flow passages. This function is critical to the success of a wide range of industrial applications. For this reason, they are available in many variations, each of which may differ in regard to design, construction, and size. In the industrial sector, one of the most commonly employed types of valves is the control valve.
Industrial control valves work by selectively opening and closing passages to control fluid flow level, direction, pressure, and temperature. As such, they help facility workers maintain consistent conditions throughout an operation, resulting in better product and process quality.
The following article provides an overview of control valves, outlining key advantages, the importance of proper maintenance and repair, typical industrial applications, and the products available at Baelz North America.
