Control Valve Service Kits
The importance of regular valve maintenance
Thermostatic temperature control valves are a rugged, reliable, and repeatable means of controlling your vital fluid temperatures. But the ability of your temperature control valve to maintain a constant temperature can change over time. Prolonged operation at extreme temperature, pressure, and flow can reduce the effectiveness of your valve, as can exposure to foreign chemicals and particulate matter. Film and scale can develop on internal mechanisms; components can wear, corrode, or fatigue; and, elastomeric O-rings can harden or swell. Degradation of components eventually can cause a degradation in valve performance. And as temperatures begin to stray from the desired set point, engine performance begins to suffer.
Common symptoms that indicate service is due include:
Longer warm up times
Slow temperature response
White smoke or excessive emissions
AMOT recommends servicing thermostatic control valves with each regularly-scheduled major equipment overhaul. Service kits contain all the components necessary, including new temperature control elements and seals, to make easy work out of valve maintenance.
