How to install your Amot temperature control valve
Installation of self actuated Amot valves:
AMOT Model B thermostatic valves are available in a wide selection of sizes and settings to fill a multitude of fluid temperature control requirements. These valves may be mounted in any position and use the proven expanding wax principle to actuate the 3-way temperature element assemblies. The model B valves may be used for diverting or mixing service.
The valves provide reliable control of fluid temperatures in engine jacket water and lubrication oil cooling systems, and are suitable for process control and industrial applications where fluids must be mixed or diverted depending on their temperatures. They may also be applied to cogeneration systems to control temperatures in the heat recovery loop assuring proper engine cooling and maximizing heat recovery.
When valves are used for mixing service, Port C is the cold fluid inlet port from the cooler, Port B is the hot by-pass fluid inlet, and Port A the common outlet. Port A is the temperature sensing port and will mix the hot and cold fluids in the correct proportion so as to produce the desired outlet temperature leaving Port A.
When valves are used for diverting service, the inlet is Port A (temperature sensing port), with Port C being connected to the cooler, and Port B connected to the cooler by-pass line.
Installation of externally actuated Amot valves:
AMOT G valves are 3-way control valves consisting of a heavy duty rotary valve and either a quarter turn electric or pneumatic actuator. The valves provide a high degree of accuracy and repeatability for accurate temperature control and are equally accurate in mixing or diverting service over a wide flow range.
The heavy duty rotor design provides tight temperature control without high maintenance requirements. The system is available in three standard control configurations: electric; pneumatic; and electro-pneumatic, offering flexibility for most requirements. Designed for high vibration service, the AMOT G valves are qualified to Lloyd’s Marine Requirements for shipboard service.
Valves can be directly mounted to reciprocating machinery, such as diesel engines, without vibration isolation. The heavy duty actuators are specially reinforced to provide vibration resistance. The standard valves are suitable for a variety of fluids such as water, water/glycol, sea water, lubricating and hydraulic oils. Optional body materials are available for services involving synthetic or fire resistant oils, deionized water and ammonia or freon in oil.
Lubricating oil temperature control is normally configured in a mixing application controlling the return temperature to the heat load. The temperature is normally measured as close as possible to the sump Return.
Jacket water cooling in diverting applications regulates the outlet coolant water temperature from a diesel or gas engine. The valve either sends water to a cooler or bypass loop, accurately maintaining the temperature. The temperature is normally measured at the outlet from the heat Source.
Charge air temperature control
The intercooler is used to cool high temperature turbo charger air. In this application the G Valve regulates the flow of cooling water through an intercooler, increasing efficiency, enhancing performance and helping to meet today’s environmental requirements.
