RT 395 Maintenance of Valves and Fittings and Actuators Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  Various types of valves and fittings are used in industry. They are suitable for gaseous and liquid media.

  A distinction is made between valves, plug valves, gates and butterfly valves. Plug valves isolate a pipeline quickly, acting transverse to the flow. A quarter revolution is sufficient for full actuation. Valves adjust the flow rate and require several turns of the spindle for full opening or closing. Gates are not intended to seal off the pipeline completely, but serve to restrict the flow. When one of these valves and fittings is combined with a driving mechanism, the resulting control device is known as an actuator.


  RT 395 presents three various types of valves and fittings. The trainer investigates the operating response of a segmented ball valve, a butterfly valve, a pneumatic control valve and a pressure reducing valve. The control panel allows the necessary electrical and pneumatic parameters to be set to test and calibrate the valves and fittings. Instruments indicate pneumatic pressures, voltage and current. There is a vice on the workbench for maintenance and assembly work. The workbench also incorporates the necessary tools, and small parts such as seals, for the carrying out of testing procedures.


  The well-structured instructional material sets out the fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.
