The globe control valve was designed as a simpler, lighter and more economic alternative to the well known and modern concept of the globe valve. Many of the main attributes of the valve are also present at the valve design, such as: trim set assembly through the top of the body (top-entry), selfaligning plug-orientated seat ring, plug stem guides similar to the ones used in severe services valves, fugitive emissions control packing and the use of piston cylinder actuators. The control valve was developed to operate with fluids temperature of -20 to 500°F (-29 to 260°C) and pressure rates corresponding to ANSI 150 and 300 pressure classes or DIN PN 16 – 40.
