Precise airflow control with Iris Valves – Upper Blackstone
Economical and precise regulation of aeration air at Upper Blackstone Waste Water Treatment Plant
Iris® diaphragm control valves enable the stable and repeatable regulation of media over the entire valve stroke. For gases and aeration air, the Iris® valves are designed so that the quantity to be regulated can be operated within a high control-accuracy range without hysteresis. Its unique design with six centrally opening segments which can be retracted completely into the casing results in an equal-percentage valve characteristic for the Iris® valve. This leads to a virtually linear operating characteristic curve with a large control range, enabling the operation of economical control loops. The differences in the operation of control valves and Iris® diaphragm control valves can be briefly explained using the example of the Upper Blackstone wastewater treatment plant in the Federal State of Massachusetts (USA).
