Control valve with chemical-resistant, vacuum-proof lining

DIN-EN: DN 15 – 200 / PN 10 – 40
ASME: NPS ½“ – 8“ / class 150
PT range: -30 < T < 230°C, vacuum 10-8 mbar

Design Features

Design Characteristics

  • different KVS values
  • individual control characteristics
  • free passage possible with open valve
  • equal percentage or linear characteristic line
  • cost-effective automation
  • readily reproducible control position

The construction of the RH-A control valves is based on our standard cavity-free plug valve with chemical resistant PFA/FEP-lining. A wide range of materials for housings, plugs, as well as for sleeves or linings are available for different areas of application. If required, the control valves can also be supplied with a heating jacket.


The specified values depend on the respective application (medium). Operating temperatures under -20°C only with body material 1.4408 or low-temperature steel. Hight pressure resistance / temperature resistance on request, e.g. PN 40.

Sleeve: There are different sleeve materials / compounds available.

Sealing Systems

Type CA

Chemical sealing to prevent fugitive emission of aggressive and toxic media
with PTFE packing for additional stem sealing; Tmax 230°C


Chemical sealing for fluctuating temperatures to prevent fugitive emission of aggressive and toxic media with PTFE packing for additional stem sealing; Tmax 230°C

Port Forms

As standard, there are ten plugs forms available per valve size, consisting of five linear and five equal percentage control characteristics.

Furthermore, bespoke plug forms can be calculated and designed according to customer-specific requirements that combine, for example, control properties and free passage.


Model structure
The data was determined by flow simulation and based on the VDI/VDE 2173 with a permissible deviation of +/- 10% (medium = water 20°C, pressure loss Δp = 1 bar).

Definition Kvs
The Kvs value designates the maximum possible throughput for a valve with a 100% opening

Definition Kv
The flow coefficient Kv [m3/h] is a specific volume flow for the following conditions:
– The pressure loss (Δp) via the valve is 105 Pa (1 bar)
– The medium is water with a temperature between 278 K and 315 K (5°C to 40°C)

Definition Cv
The flow coefficient Cv is a valve flow coefficient that does not correspond to S.I. units. It represents the number of U.S. gallons of water which flow through a valve with a pressure loss of 1 psi (68.95 mbar) at a temperature of 40°F to 100°F (4°C to 38°C) within a minute. Cv = Kv/0,865
