Minimum flow valve
- SCHROEDER Automatic recirculation valves (ARC) for minimum flow to protect centrifugal pumps. To ensure minimum flow through the pump during operation at low flows.
- Also called minimum flow valves, ARC valves, YARWAY valves. This is the solution recommended by top pump manufacturers: FLOWSERVE, SULZER, KSB, WEIR.
- They have 4 automatic functions: main flow check valve / minimum flow measurement / pressure reduction / bypass.
- Modulating service. Energy saving. Improves the installation’s NPSH.
- Independent mechanical operation. No associated instrumentation required. Easy installation and maintenance.
- As an alternative to automatic valves, we provide minimum flow control valves, also known as leak-off valves.
