Return temperature control valves are excellent for regulating large heating systems. They ensure a  uniform distribution of hot water throughout the system and prevent insufficient heating or overheating of heat exchangers exposed to the danger of short-circuiting.

The BW’s are directly controlled return temperature control valves which are installed in the return line. They maintain constant return temperatures within their proportional line.

Features and benefits

  • Direct acting proportional controller for maintaining constant return
  • Used for regulating large heating systems and tracing systems
  • The valve prevents short-circuiting and automatically balances large systems

The cooling-water control valves type CW are direct-acting proportional controllers for installation in cooling water or brine return lines. They ensure that the cooling-water outlet temperature is maintained at a preset value, calculated for the process requirements.

When using cooling-water control valves, higher temperatures are possible than with an uncontrolled process. As a result of the larger heat absorption by the cooling water or brine, cooling agent and energy consumption are reduced.

In particular, in new plants where the installation of cooling-water control valves has been planned right from the beginning, capital costs are reduced.

Features and benefits

  • Direct acting proportional controller
  • Ensure cooling water is maintained at a preset level
  • Reduced capital costs due to higher discharge temperatures
  • Continuous bleed flow guarantees a sensitive response
  • Size DN 10 to DN 100
  • Size DN 10 to DN 100

Steam Traps

We offer the complete line of steam trap products from Gestra. To be able to operate a plant over a long period with an optimum efficiency the choice of the correct valves is of vital importance. Amongst these valves are steam traps which have an important role to play. Steam must be trapped within heating equipment until it has surrendered all heat energy, at which point the condensate thereby formed must be immediately discharged.
