Series 3800 Modulating Pilot Valve
Reduce product loss and fugitive emissions with the PCM non-flowing modulating pilot control from Farris Engineering.
The PCM Modulating Control offers a variety of features and benefits. It opens in proportion to the overpressure to minimize fugitive emissions and product loss as well as to reduce noise. The PCM also reduces the shock loads to vessels and piping systems due to valve actuation. Its set pressure is not affected by constant or variable backpressure. In addition, the PCM Modulating Control can be directly interchanged with our PCF5 snap acting controls in the field for both cost and time savings.

Full bore designs available with 1″ through 12″ inlets and orifice areas from 0.719 to 109 square inches giving maximum capacity for a given inlet and modulating size. All stainless, non-flowing pilot controls minimizes product loss and provides maximum resistance to corrosion. Available in Snap Acting or Modulating designs. Standard “O” ring elastomer seat main valve and pilot control minimizes fugitive emissions and allows operation within 95% of set pressure. Materials include Viton®, Buna N, ethylene propylene, silicone and Teflon. Optional materials of construction include complete 316 stainless steel. Applications: Air, gas, vapor, liquid and steam services where maximum seat tightness, operating pressures and precise adjustment are required. Excellent for natural gas pipeline and compressor service.
