Multi-functional positioner
The ARCAPRO digital positioner is a multi-functional interface with the
controller or process control system and operates as standard with 4 to
20 mA. HART, Profibus (PA), and Foundation Fieldbus (FF) communication are used to establish a digital interface with bidirectional data exchange (including status messages). It can be parameterized on site or
via the communications system. An open mechanical interface concept
that our mother company ARCA helped elaborate complies with VDI / VDE
3845 and is used for mounting and mechanically connecting the positioner to the actuator. For more details about this see the von Rohr brochure ARCAPRO positioner.
Powerful piston actuator
Most commonly used is the pneumatic rotary actuator series DA as shown
here. It is robust, ex-proof, features low actuating times, provides a constant seating force and is cost effective. Different sizes and rotation angles
can be manufactured according to your requirements. von Rohr rotary plug
valves are optionally also available with electric actuators. For more details,
see the von Rohr brochures DA actuators or SHE actuators.
Reliable stem seal
Towards the outside, the stem is sealed by a double gland packing. The
stem surfaces, packing material, and design are finely matched so that
neither friction, high torques, corrosion, nor emission limit values will cause
you any issues. The valve design is also TA-Luft ( Clean Air Act ) compliant.
Robust, high-precision trims
The von Rohr rotary plug valves are equipped with inner parts specially designed for the prevailing flow conditions in your plant. The replaceable seat
allows an easy exchange-service of the inner parts. So, seat and plug can
be optimally adapted to changes in the operating data. The metallic or soft
sealing of the seat, along with the metallic plug, ensures a lasting internal
The rotary plug body is available in cast steel or stainless steel. The simple
design as well as the short overall length of the rotary plug valves results
in less weight and thus simplifies installation into the pipe. The rotary plug
valves are available in flanged- or sandwich version. Optionally, the body
flanges can be supplied with groove or female face.
Valve application
and design
The rotary plug valve has been designed in terms of universal use. The
good properties, each of control valves, butterfly valves and ball valves
have been united in this rotary plug valve. None of the mentioned valves
achieves the overall properties of the rotary plug valve. Particularly noteworthy is the large flow rate at maximum seat width. Furthermore there is
an option to install smaller seat widths. The high rangeability of this series
solves even the most difficult control tasks exceptionally well.
Rotary plug design
The valves are available for nominal pressure ranging from PN 16 to PN 63
and ANSI 150 to ANSI 400. Suitable casting materials allow the use of a
variety of media and temperatures from – 40° C to +250° C.
Operating principle
The robust designed plug has the shape of a spherical segment and sits
with one side on a shaft, while the other side rotates on a hardened bearing
journal. The bearing of the shaft is placed in a double eccentric position.
This eccentric bearing causes, when rotating the shaft from closed to opened
position, an immediate lifting of the plug away from the seat. Thus, friction
between seat and plug can be avoided.
