Criteria for Selecting
Low-Temperature Valves are Outlined in New White Paper.
Selecting fluid automation devices for service in low ambient
temperatures presents designers and specifiers with numerous
difficult challenges, and cause serious operational and
maintenance problems, and cost issues, all along the line.
A new white paper,
“Cold Hard Facts: Five Key Criteria for Selecting
Low-Temperature Valves,” examines five key qualities to
examine when selecting valves, cylinders, and other fluid
automation devices for application in low ambient temperatures.
The five criteria are: reliability, testing and compliance,
selection variety, low-power capabilities, and support options.

During long, cold months, fluid automation products must perform
well under harsh, frigid conditions, often unattended — and
frequently at remote sites that render repair or replacement
more difficult than usual. Even in warmer climates, cold storage
or low temperature processing lines present special challenges
for material flexibility and seal integrity.
As the white paper warns, the stakes are higher than ever when
valve choices are considered.
