Thermostatic valve Type WVTS
Thermostatic valve type WVTS is suitable for controlling the temperature of a flow of water or neutral brine.
WVTS opens on rising sensor temperature and is indirect servo operated thermostatic valve. It is suitable for controlling temperature in industrial applications by regulating the quantity of cooling water or neutral brine that
cools down the process. The valves are self-acting, i.e. they operate without the supply of auxiliary energy such as
electricity or compressed air. The required temperature is maintained constant without unnecessary use of cooling
water in cooling systems. The operating economy and-efficiency are maximized.

The valve body is made of cast iron with pressed-in bronze seat. The pilot orifice assembly (7) consists of a
housing with seat and pilot cone of stainless steel. A filter cartridge (20) is built into the valve cover. Here the equalising orifice is protected by a replaceable filter. The bellows in the bellows element (3) are of tin bronze. In designing WVTS, great emphasis was placed on producing a valve with a completely tight seat and no external
leakage. The servo piston was therefore fitted with a ring of special rubber that creates an elastic seal against the valve seat.
A specially designed rubber sleeve ensures that the servo piston moves in the cylinder with minimum friction.
External valve leakage is prevented at the pilot cone where the spindle is fitted with Teflon cup washers. Cover gaskets and pilot channel seals are rubber. The water-tight rubber seal between cover (6a) and housing (6) ensure that moisture cannot enter and freeze up the spindle. The insulating washer (10) prevents heat transmission between valve body and setting element housing.
The capacity curves show the capacity (water quantity in m³/h) of the individual valve sizes as a function of pressure drop across the valve. The capacities are given for approx. 85% valve opening and are obtained with an offset of 4 °C (temperature rise at sensor) on both upper and lower temperature ranges.
