Key Components in the Industrial Sector – The Past and Present of Valves

Origins Of Valves:

  • The origin of valves can be traced back to ancient civilizations, where people used simple gates (similar to valves) to control water flow,
  • In the Middle Ages, in order to achieve more advanced water and energy control, devices such as windmills and water turbines were used.
  • With the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and the development of steam engines and other industrial machinery, the design of valves became more complex.
  • In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the introduction of automation technology made valve operation more precise and controllable.
  • In modern times, electronic technology has enabled valves to achieve high automation and remote control. Electric and hydraulic valve systems are widely used in various industrial and manufacturing processes, improving efficiency and safety. Nowadays, valve technology has further developed towards digitalization and intelligence, enabling real-time adjustment to meet complex industrial needs.

5. Question-Solving:


Customer Challenge:

Our engineering team once faced a severe fluid control problem from a client. In the industrial processes of customers, complex fluid control and high precision requirements are involved. Traditional valves cannot meet their special needs, resulting in low production efficiency, energy waste, and system instability.

Our approach:

  • Customer demand research: Our team has a deep understanding of customer needs, including special requirements for fluid control accuracy, special conditions in industrial environments, and bottleneck issues in existing systems.
  • Customized solution design: Based on the special needs of customers, we have designed a set of customized fluid control solutions. This not only includes the manufacturing of valves made of special materials, but also involves the integration of advanced automation control systems.
  • Development of high-precision valves: In response to the high requirements of customers for fluid control accuracy, we have developed a brand new high-precision valve. By adopting advanced fluid dynamics and material technology, the valve is ensured to operate stably under various working conditions.

Technical Explanation:

In valve technology, flow coefficient and flow characteristics are the key to our success. The flow coefficient determines the fluid flow capacity of the valve, while the flow characteristics ensure that our valve can provide stable performance under various operating conditions.

1. Flow coefficient (Cv value):

Definition: The flow coefficient (Cv value) is a key parameter that measures the fluid flow capacity of a valve. It is the water flow rate allowed by the valve under specific operating conditions, measured through standardized testing methods. Usually, the higher the Cv value, the greater the fluid flow capacity of the valve.

Performance evaluation: Cv value is an important indicator for evaluating valve performance. Valves with high Cv values are usually more effective in controlling fluid flow, making them suitable for applications that require high flow rates.

Matching selection: In system design, understanding the Cv value of valves helps to select valves of appropriate size and performance, ensuring the stability and efficiency of system operation.

2. Flow characteristics:

Definition: The flow characteristic describes the relationship between the fluid flow rate of a valve at different opening angles and the valve opening angle. Different types of valves (linear, equal percentage, quick opening, etc.) have different flow characteristics.

Main types:

  • Linear flow characteristic: The opening of the valve is linearly related to the flow rate, that is, for every increase in the same percentage of opening, the flow rate also increases by the same percentage.
  • Equal percentage flow characteristic: The flow rate of a valve is proportional to the percentage of valve opening, and is usually used in applications that require precise flow control.
  • Quick opening/closing flow characteristics:In the early stage of opening or closing, the flow rate changes rapidly, but gradually slows down in the later stage.

Flow control accuracy: Different flow characteristics are suitable for different fluid control needs. Understanding the flow characteristics of valves helps ensure that the system can provide stable and accurate fluid flow under different operating conditions.
