ARCA cooling water control valves used during uninterrupted operation of the mould for continuous casting must manage huge volumes of water to ensure optimum temperature distribution. The chilling plates and chilling pipes are cooled using ARCA cooling water control valves, where the coolant flows through the moulds via integrated channels.
Very large overflow valves for heavy-duty applications in steel mills are designed to reduce noise and cavitation. The cv values previously calculated cannot be not be reduced. Carefully designed internal plug and seat assemblies also help to divert these large quantities of water under high differential pressure between casting operations.
Valve & Automation factory trained specialists with extensive plant experience will be able to assist in sizing and selecting the correct control valve for your application. Talk to one of our Technical Specialists today!
