Badger Meter has released a new Research Control Valve selection guide to help engineers and others involved in specifying, purchasing, servicing or distributing industrial control valves to navigate the extensive range of accessories used in building custom-engineered valve solutions.

Because the custom-fit accessories can be combined in millions of ways to meet specialized and stringent parameters in demanding liquid, gas, steam or multiphase applications, the guide enables customers to match their specific application requirements to several available choices.

The guide outlines valve solutions used to control the flow of liquids, gas and steam in chemical, petrochemical, bio-tech and other applications. Valves range in sizes from ΒΌ to 2 inches and with pressures from full vacuum to 60,000 psi.

The guide illustrates options for critical applications where pressure, temperature, exotic alloys, flow characteristics and system customization are focal points. It also features a step-by-step selection process to help the reader explore many custom-fit accessories including valve alloys, end connections, bonnet selections, guiding options and operating temperature and pressure parameters.
