Valves control, regulate, or direct the flow of fluids, such as water, gas, and other substances. They work by opening, closing, or obstructing passageways using flaps or other movable parts. There are three main types of valves: manual, actuated, and automated. Manual valves are operated by hand using handwheels, levers, chains, or gear wheels. Actuated valves are controlled remotely and are often used in large-scale or high-precision operations. Automatic valves are triggered automatically when a certain flow is reached. There are many types of valves available, including ball valves, butterfly valves, check valves, gate valves, knife gate valves, globe valves, needle valves, pinch valves, and plug and pressure relief valves. Centro offers a wide range of valves and can provide expert guidance to help you make the right choice for your needs.
Actuation refers to the process of causing something to move or operate. This can be achieved by using an actuator, a device that converts a source of energy into motion. There are two types of actuators: linear actuators, which move in a straight line, and rotary actuators, which produce rotary motion. Actuators are commonly used in various industries, including manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and robotics.
Engineered products are designed and manufactured to meet specific technical and performance requirements. They are typically custom-made or tailored to fit a particular application or need. Some examples of engineered products include actuators, heat exchangers, loading systems, and filtration systems.
Steam traps are automatic valves that filter out condensate and non-condensable gases such as air without allowing steam to escape. In the industry, steam is utilized regularly for heating or as driving energy for mechanical power. Steam traps prevent condensation from being wasted. There are three types of steam traps thermostatic, mechanical, and thermodynamic. Thermostatic steam traps act in response to the surrounding steam temperature. There are three types of thermostatic steam traps liquid expansion traps, bimetallic and balanced pressure thermostatic traps. Each operates differently and is suited to specific kinds of applications. Mechanical steam traps depend on the difference in density between steam and condensate. They can constantly pass large volumes of condensate and are fit for a wide range of process applications. Mechanical steam trap types include ball float and inverted bucket steam traps.
