Free online tool improves sizing and selection process for globe and rotary control valves

Warren Controls creates ValveWorks program to improve the sizing and selection process for globe and rotary control valves based on the ISA 75.01 international standard

Warren Controls’ ValveWorks is an easy-to-use online system that safely maps out users’ solutions based on application requirements and process conditions. Control valves are sized accurately for optimum control, providing minimal energy loss and maximum life expectancy, without excessive maintenance.

Through step-by-step instructions, ValveWorks users navigate through more than 100,000 combinations of construction attributes, factoring in requirements like flow rate, inlet pressure and temperature, pressure drop, vapour and critical pressure, predicted noise and more.

The program also allows customers to further customise valves, selecting carbon steel or stainless steel for the body, threaded of flanged ends, pressure rating, trim material and accessories. 

The process repeats on the actuator side, so that when users are finished, they have a detailed Sizing Report and optional Flow Curve Report. This comprehensive report illustrates how well specific choices will perform in a specific application and documents sound selections, which are necessary during a project’s specification and procurement stages. Performance of the valve over the full range of control is graphically shown and all sizing and proposals can be printed to keep on record. 

Users that are also registered as sales channel partners have additional access to pricing options, allowing further evaluation of their selections before creating a formal quote with ValveWorks or making a purchase.

“ValveWorks is a tool that helps you get your project specifications right the first time, in such a way that a layperson could learn the program,” says Vice President of Sales & Marketing Al Gunnarson. “This is what’s unique about our program versus our competitors – you don’t need to have a detailed background in valve and actuator sizing to know how to use ValveWorks.”
