Control Valves

Cross Company Control Valves

Control valves do a lot of heavy lifting in process applications. They facilitate precise control over fluid flow, pressure, temperature, and other variables necessary for smooth operation and production. Optimal control valves are essential for achieving optimal process efficiency while also ensuring safety.

At Cross Company Process Solutions, we understand both the significance and importance of control valves in industrial process applications. That’s why we offer a wide range of solutions to meet the diverse application needs of a variety of industries.

Contact us today to learn more about the importance of the right control valve or to get control valves for your process application.

The Role of Control Valves in Process Control

Control valves regulate the flow of material, either liquids, gases or slurries, through a pipe. They adapt to the changing conditions of a process to keep it as close as possible to the optimum set point.

Control valves consist of three main parts, the actuator, the positioner and the body of the valve. To control the material, the valves can either open and close fully, called an on/off valve or slightly, which is called throttling.

Cross Company offers many different types of linear and rotary styles of valves to suit the particular application including

Ball valves

Butterfly valves

Rotary plug valves

Globe valves

Angle valves

How To Choose the Right Control Valve

Control valve requirements vary greatly in the parameters that need to be considered when specifying a valve and unfortunately, no one valve can handle every application. Considerations include type of material flowing through the pipe, pressure, temperature, cavitation, flashing, noise and emissions.

Our experts can choose from a variety of manufacturers that we represent, including Neles (formerly Jamesbury), Flo-tite, Adams Valves, Apollo, KOSO Hammel Dahl, Max-Seal, Parker, Steriflow, Low Flow and Jordan Valve.
