Flow Control Valves

Fuel Flow Control valves are designed to provide slow rates of flow at the beginning and end of a loading cycle.

The valves help minimise the effects of fuel hammer or pressure shock on loading systems, as well as ensuring the accuracy of the metering systems they are connected to. We design all our valves to operate in Zone 1 hazardous areas and additionally include automatic closure in the event of an emergency shutdown.

Flow Control Valves

We fit our Fuel Flow Control Valves onto our bulk flow meters, including on our electronic loading skids and terminal loading gantries. Olenoid valves, controlled by a batch controller, provide the control. The electro-mechanical valves come in 2in, 3in, and 4in flanged sizes with two-stage, multi-function as well as digital flow control options.

Below you will find all the key details for our Flow Control Valves. If you would like to discuss this in more detail, then please just get in touch.  Because, we are always happy to help and answer any queries you may have.


  • Electro-mechanical solenoid valves
  • Two-stage version, therefore providing increased control
  • Digital versions for use with load computers
  • 2in, 3in, as well as 4in flange sizes available
  • Slows the rate of slow at the beginning, as well as the end of a load cycle

Two-stage Multi-function Valves

These solid valves provide two flow rates, slow flow (partially open), as well as fast flow (fully open). We calibrate the slow flow rate to match site requirements. The speed of the pump system therefore dictates the fast flow rate.

Digital Flow Control Valves

Directly controlled by a load computer, these valves can provide a graduated increase and decrease in flow rate, according to site requirements. These valves are ideal for accurate batch loading of petroleum products into tankers at oil depots and petroleum terminals.

Rate of Flow and Differential Pressure Growth

We also offer a range of valves for controlling the rate of flow or differential pressure through a fuelling system. Rail refuelling depots typically utilise them. The valves require no external power and undergo factory calibration to provide the required performance on-site.
