What is an Automatic Valve?

What is an Automatic Valve?

An automatic Valve is a device used to control the flow of a fluid medium, which plays a vital role in the field of engineering. An automatic Valve regulates, intercepts or distributes fluid through an automated control system to ensure the normal operation of a piping system and the smooth running of a process. As a professional engineer, it is crucial to understand the principle, structure and applicable scenarios of automatic Valves.

First of all, the principle of Automatic Valve is mainly based on the signal input of the control system and the role of the actuator. The control system receives signals from sensors, processes and outputs corresponding command signals through algorithms, and thus drives the actuator to realize the opening or closing of the Valve. This closed-loop control based on feedback signals enables the automatic Valve to realize precise flow regulation under different working conditions, ensuring stable operation of the system.

Secondly, the structure of the Automatic Valve includes Valve body, Valve seat, spool, actuator and other components. Valve body is the main part of the automatic Valve, play a role in connecting the pipeline and flow guide; Valve seat and spool is the key component to control the flow of fluid, through the relative positional relationship between the two to realize the Valve opening and closing; actuator is the spool drive device, can be pneumatic actuator, electric actuator or hydraulic actuator. The precision and durability of the cooperation between the components directly affects the performance and life of the automatic Valve.

Finally, Automatic Valves are suitable for a variety of engineering fields, especially for scenarios that require precise control of fluid media. For example, in the chemical process, automatic Valves can accurately proportion and control the fluid according to the requirements of the production process to ensure product quality and yield; in the oil and gas pipeline system, automatic Valves can dynamically adjust the Valve status according to the pipeline pressure and flow to ensure the safe operation of the pipeline system; in the HVAC system, automatic Valves can be adjusted according to the indoor temperature changes in the real-time heating and cooling system to Enhance energy efficiency and comfort.

2. Different types of Automatic Valves.

2.1 Automated On Off Valve

2.1.1 Role of Automated On Off Valve:

On Off Valve is a kind of automatic opening and closing Valve that does not require human power or other actions, relying on the flow of the pipeline medium itself to open or close the Valve, mainly used to prevent the pipeline medium in the reverse direction of flow control, Gu is also become a backstop Valve or back flow Valve. On Off Valve has only one flow direction, that is, only along the inlet flow can not be reversed, the media back flow Valve flap is closed. On Off Valve is generally installed in the prevention of the Valve is not closed when the media back to the place. Like common pumps will be installed at the exit of the On Off Valve to prevent high-pressure water flow back into the pump, so that the pump impeller or other components due to the impact of hydraulic loosening or damage, resulting in accidents. In short, in the pipeline or equipment to prevent backflow of media will be used on the On Off Valve.

2.1.2 The Working Principle of On Off Valve

On Off Valve principle is very simple, as shown in the figure, the medium flows in the specified direction, when the flow pressure exceeds the opening pressure of the On Off Valve, the Valve flap under the action of fluid pressure is topped open, so as to connect the pipeline medium flow. On the contrary, when the pipeline medium backward flow, in the fluid pressure, the Valve is pressed in the On Off Valve body, the Valve is closed, thus cutting off the pipeline medium circulation. And the greater the pressure of the back flow medium, the Valve flap closed the tighter, the better the sealing effect, completely eliminating the possibility of media reflux.

2.2 Modulating Valve

2.2.1 Self-operated Valve

Self-operated Valve is a kind of no external energy, relying on the measured medium itself pressure or temperature or flow rate changes, according to a pre-set value, for automatic adjustment of the control device, is a kind of energy-saving instrumentation. It is a kind of energy-saving instrument. It integrates many functions of control and execution. Since an independent instrument control system. Set transmitter, controller and actuator functions in one.

Self-operated Valve

Automatic control Valves are special Valves equipped with actuators that can be controlled by temperature or flow sensors. The Valves are controlled by electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic signals from the sensors. The Valves can be set to open, close or anything in between for precise flow control.

Automated Control Valves


These are a few common types of automatic Valves. Automatic Valves play an important role in various engineering fields, providing reliable fluid control solutions for the operation of engineering systems. As a professional manufacturer, understanding the different types of automatic Valves and their characteristics, we can better choose the right automatic Valve equipment for our customers to ensure the safe, stable and efficient operation of engineering systems.


In summary, as a professional manufacturer, it is crucial to understand the principle, structure and applicable scenarios of automatic Valves. Only through the in-depth understanding and reasonable application of automatic Valves can we better play its role in the engineering field, realize the precision and automation of fluid control, and promote the safe, stable and efficient operation of engineering systems.
