EMERSON: New Line Sizes for Fisher Control-Disk Valve

emerson fisher control-disk valveEmerson Process Management announces extended line sizes for the Fisher® Control-Disk™ valve, which is now available in sizes NPS 14 through 24 and ASME Class 150 & 300. The Control-Disk valve offers excellent throttling performance and is ideal for applications that involve fast processes and varying pressure drops, such as in hydrocarbon, refining, chemical, pulp and paper, and metals and mining industries.

The Control-Disk valve’s wide control range is twice that of traditional butterfly valves for better adherence to set point. This improved capability allows control closer to the target set point, regardless of process disturbances, which results in a reduction in process variability.

The Control-Disk valve is reliable and has low maintenance requirements, resulting in high plant availability. This assembly can capture and deliver diagnostic data to ValveLink™ software, providing an accurate picture of valve, actuator and digital valve controller performance. This makes is a core component of PlantWeb™ digital plant architecture.

The new valve sizes are designed for installation between ASME Class 150 or Class 300 raised-face flanges with flangeless (wafer) or single flange (lugged) body designs. Face-to-face dimensions are in compliance with API 609 and MSS SP-68 standards.
