GEMÜ further expands its control valve range with the launch of Type GEMÜ 566 globe valve.
The control mechanism of the GEMÜ 566 stainless steel globe valve is integrated into the valve body. In addition to a pneumatic actuator, there is also a manually operated version and a motorised version. Integrating the control mechanism into the valve body makes it possible to switch from a manual actuation type to an automated actuation type at any time. The particular advantage of this is that the components involved are located outside the medium-wetted area. This means that from the start, the plant operator enjoys a very high degree of flexibility with regard to potential changes to their operational processes. The medium-wetted part is separated from the control mechanism by an additional separating diaphragm. The diaphragm is available in EPDM or FPM materials. The investment casting, stainless steel valve body has a threaded socket and is available in the nominal sizes DN 8 to DN 15.
The GEMÜ 566 valve was developed especially for controlling small volumes and provides a flow rate from 63 up to 2500 l/h. For all three actuation types, there are options for optical and electronic position feedback.
