Third generation smart control valve
Flowserve has developed StarPac 3, a new version of its Valtek StarPac smart control valve.
According to the company, the StarPac 3 is the only fully integrated smart control valve on the market providing full proportional integral derivative (PID) control. The StarPac 3 smart control valve features built-in process sensors, microprocessor-based control, and a high-accuracy digital positioner.
Improvements to the new smart control valve include an explosion-proof housing, USB and infrared interface, updated electronics, stainless-steel options and enhanced positioner functions.
