This is not a control issue -- the control performance is the same with the valve on the jacket inlet or on the jacket outlet. Process considerations usually favor installing the valve on the jacket outlet. The pressure within the jacket is higher, and a cooler fluid is subjected to the pressure decrease across the control valve. There could be some special process considerations in your application that favor installing the valve on the jacket inlet. Probably not, but if so, then do it.
