Flowserve Corp. has announced the launch of its new automation and control solutions at POWER-GEN International 2003, Dec. 9 -11, (booth 8337), at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The company will showcase its latest offerings in high-performance, high-reliability control and isolating valves, actuators, and repair solutions, and its advanced asset management, diagnostics, and predictive maintenance programs for both the nuclear and fossil power industry. The company will also launch its new severe service control valve, the Multi-Z-a boiler feed-pump recirculation control valve solution for entrained solids flow control. The valve solution is designed specifically to handle high-pressure drop applications where entrained solids and cavitation are a problem. It features a multistage trim design that eliminates cavitation and provides extended trim life. Its venturi outlet nozzle provides further trim and seat protection from high velocity, cavitation and flashing, and its linear multistage plug design provides greater rangeability and higher throttling resolution.
