A V-Flow customer needed to control and monitor the flow of seawater from a remote location. There were very specific details of how the valve should integrate with existing pipework. V-Flow provided advice regarding a suitable actuated valve, flow meter and digital receiver.
All pipework was fabricated from stainless steel. The ball valve is operated by a Comparato Compact Pro electric actuator that features an IP67 enclosure, anti-condensation heater, manual override and position confirmation switches for feedback to the remote PLC. A Flow X3 paddlewheel flow meter/transmitter provides a 4mA–20mA signal to the Flow X3 digital receiver. Flow rate and batch flow can be read from the LCD display and fully integrated with the existing PLC.
