REflex flexible control valve features fail-safe function and easy maintenance
RTK, a CIRCOR International brand, and an international leader in the design and manufacture of control valves and actuators, has launched the REflex Quick Change Seat Control Valve with REact 30 DC-PoP smart actuator, a flexible all-in-one solution for noise reduction and high pressure drop applications.
The REflex QCS Control Valve assembles and disassembles in four quick steps without the need for special tools, accelerating maintenance by up to 85 percent for efficiency and cost-savings. Plus, tool-free seat exchange allows for quick adaptation to changing conditions. Featuring optimized high-capacity flow paths and interchangeable trim, the two-way REflex QCS Control Valve supports a variety of media and meets NACE standards for use with abrasive liquids and gasses.
The REflex QCS Control Valve is high customizable for lower flow and higher pressure drop and available in one- or two-stages, as well as a range of sizes, pressure classes, and end connections types. All REflex valves are available either as ANSI or DIN, ensuring that direct replacement is always possible. Ideal for power, process, industrial, chemical, petrochemical, LNG, refrigeration technology, and oil and gas applications, these valves excel at control and shut-off of liquids and gases, feedwater boiler filling, superheater start-up, and as relief valves.
The REact 30 DC-PoP actuator equips the REflex QCS Control Valve with innovative smart valve technology to ensure system safety in any situation. When operating in normal conditions, the REact 30 DC-PoP's intelligent high-efficiency brushless DC motor can be adjusted to four separate speeds for energy savings and precision. These systems are also easily interconnected for remote monitoring. Then, in case of power failure, the two system-saving functions—the standard Emergency Closing Unit and a Power off Positioning module—smoothly opens or closes to a predefines safety end position. Automatic return to closed loop control is possible without any external components or wiring, ensuring that the valve resumes normal duties as soon as the plant returns to normal operations.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
