Needle valves


Needle valves

Needle valves, sometimes referred to as plunger valves, are regulating valves and enable engineers to finely control and regulate water flow and pressure. The precision is achieved through the fine movement of the shaft, which enables the gearbox to move the piston tube in sliding motion towards opening or closing position, depending on the requirements from the control system.

Needle valves can be used in many different applications with a need for flow or pressure regulation. In water treatment and distribution, dams, reservoirs, power plants and industry needle valves are e.g. used for:

• Flow control
• Pressure regulation
• Pump start
• Turbine by-pass
• Discharge
• Reservoir inlets
• Air regulation

When to use needle valves?

Needle valve, in comparison with diaphragm control valves, can be used with higher differential pressure, and our needle valve standard range covers a pressure range up to PN100. Our standard size range covers DN80 to DN2000. The needle valves can be manually actuated or can be controlled by electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic actuation.
