The energy associated with large pressure reduction through process piping system valving results in vibration and noise.
It may also be accompanied by a temporary or permanent phase change of the whole process steam, or just a fraction within, from liquid to gas. Understanding the fluid dynamics happening with the pressure reduction is key to ensuring that the pressure can be reduced in a stable, controlled manner.
Spartan Controls’ High Pressure Letdown technologies provide the means to throttle the process effectively. Our local experts will aid in the selection of properly sized control valves with the needed trim and seal capability for this service to promote valve durability and with consideration for corrosion, erosion, capacity, and leakage concerns.
