While control valves are an essential part of most flow processes today, they cannot accomplish their key tasks without help from the many accessories that aid in smooth operation. Let our experienced Valve Application Engineers develop an optimum solution to meet all your valve automation needs.
Ceramic Piping & Orifice Plates
Our ceramic-lined pipe and fittings are designed to outlast linings such as glass, rubber, basalt, hard-facings, and coatings that are commonly used to extend the life of piping systems. All pipe and fittings feature extremely wear resistant ceramics that are also exceptionally corrosion-resistant.
Our designs are in accordance with ASME and ISO recommendations to ensure a maximum accuracy in flow measurement. These flow nozzels are available in flanged, weld-in, and holding-ring types using pipe-tap or throat-tap designs for line size up to 24″. Standard materials are carbon steel, chrom-moly, and stainless steel.
Flow-Lin provides numerous services for our customers including bore calculations, flow-versus-differential curves, temperature/pressure correction curves, cavitation analysis, and laboratory flow calibrations. Our engineering department welcomes the challenge presented by complicated flow problems found in liquids, steam, and gases. We also offer computer software for engineers to run bore calculations for orifice plates, flow nozzles, or venturi tubes (U.S. or S.I. units). The software uses the latest ASME and ISO references to ensure the best calculation accuracy.
Our limit switches provide absolute assurance in the most challenging applications by increasing reliability, profitability and reducing downtime. Engineered to meet tough applications while offering high reliability and installation flexibility, these rugged, dependable, and affordable models are designed to provide dependability in all environments.

One housing for pneumatic or electro-pneumatic, where I/P can be installed, removed, or converted at any time-while still mounted on the actuator. Various mounting capabilities – rotary or linear. Standard indicator can be reversed to direct or reverse acting and always show the proper scale (0-100%).
Smart Valve Positioners
Smart valve positioners are digital valve controllers, microprocessor-based, current to pneumatic instruments with internal logic capability. They are designed to convert a current signal to a pressure signal to operate a valve. The ability to embed software commands into the memory of these smart digital controllers represents the real difference between digital and analog I/P devices. The software capability allows automatic configuration and setup of the valve when equipped with a digital controller. Most importantly, it allows two-way communication for process, valve and instrument diagnostics.
Reason for the Use of Smart Positioners
In most respects, smart positioners perform the same basic function as the basic analog positioners combined with current to pneumatic converters. The key advantages for using smart positioners are
- Automatic calibration and configuration. Considerable time savings are realized over traditional zero and spanning.
- Valve diagnostics. Through the Distributed Control System (DCS), PC software tools, or handheld communicators, users can diagnose the health of a control valve while it is in the line.
- Reduced cost of loop commissioning, including installation and calibration.
- Use of diagnostics to maintain loop performance levels.
- Improved process control accuracy that reduces process variability.
