The control valve can be furnished as an integral part of a mass flow controllers, a pressure controller, or as a separate component. It is a proportional, electro magnetic control valve with extremely fast and smooth flow control characteristics. With reference to the specific fields of application there are different series of unique Bronkhorst High-Tech control valves.
For liquid flow applications with higher flow rates and pressure rating up to 100 bar, Bronkhorst designed the control valve model C5I, however the control valve may also be used for gas flow appplications. The C5I control valve is directly operated by a magnetic coil with IP65 (weatherproof) housing and is closed when de-energized (Normally Closed). Depending on flow rate and fluid the C5I valve allows a pressure drop of max. 5 to 40 bar (d). Together with Bronkhorst mass flow meters it offers possibilities to constitute a compact flow or pressure control loop.
