ST / STE
AMBIENT TEMPERATURE SENSING CONTROL VALVE
Eliminate steam waste by automatically controlling steam flow in response to ambient temperature.
The ST valve maintains the desired temperature in a process pipe or storage tank by automatically regulating steam flow in response to changes in fluid temperature. As a result, its operation also eliminates costly steam waste and prevents damage to process fluids due to overheating.
The ST valve eliminates the use of delicate capillaries, hazardous chemically filled diaphragms or thin-walled bellows. It can also be used to replace or back-up existing electrically traced systems, with significant savings and equivalent temperature control.
Ideal for original or retrofit installations. The ST valve is mechanically attached to process pipe or tank wall by welding or banding (e.g. stainless steel worm gear pipe clamp) and thermally bonded to the wall with thermal cement, without penetrating the wall.
For those applications calling for the penetration of a tank wall, our STE valve can be supplied with an actuator extension of up to 72 inches in brass or stainless steel along with an associated thermal well in those materials.
