FLORHAM PARK, N.J., July 22, 2015 — Help for engineers with selecting the right valve types to help improve process cooling throughout a range of industries is available in a new whitepaper that uses winemaking to illustrate the suggested tradeoffs and advantages involved in optimum valve selection.
The new paper, “Great Wine Coolers: Selecting valves to improve process cooling in winemaking and other industries,” explains that while the cooling process in industrial winemaking is fairly straightforward, it can highlight how valves can function as surprisingly important ingredients in improving a wide variety of process cooling applications.
Key takeaways from the whitepaper include:
- The multiple choices in selecting valve types for any type of industrial cooling application
- Diaphragm valves are popular and affordable; may encounter plugging problems
- Ball valves avoid plugging; are relatively expensive and maintenance-intensive
- Angle-body piston valves are slightly more expensive than diaphragm valves; offer exceptionally long life
- An exclusive direct-acting temperature control valve, though initially expensive, provides ultimate economy and most advanced control
