Winter Alert: Steam Tracing Control Valves

Automation of Steam Tracing Control Valves
and Heating Systems to Prevent System Shock

Process lines typically contain special oil, if the ambient temperature gets too low, the oil becomes coagulated, creating clogs, and will not flow. The clogs will cause a “system shock” by jamming the system and as a result, the maintenance costs can be extreme. The process equipment may be damaged, along with downtime and loss of production.
Ambient Sensing Valves minimize steam waste and protect process lines by automatically controlling steam flow in response to ambient temperature.


  • Direct acting
  • High repeatability-no set point drift
  • Valve opens gradually, preventing system shock
  • In-line serviceable
  • Solar shield provided for operation at 60°F
  • ½” to 2” NPT end connections
  • 100% factory tested
