Valtek Linear Globe/Angle Control Valves
The Valtek Mark One globe control valve offers superior performance in liquid and gaseous services, while also permitting easy, fast and inexpensive maintenance. The spring-cylinder actuated Mark One valve provides stiffness and maintains high positioning accuracy, repeatability, controlled high speed, and faithful response.
The Mark One-X offers a cost-effective means of installing a small valve in a much larger line without line reducers or expanders. It is identical to a standard Mark One except for its body, which has expanded outlets.
Mark One™ Three-Way
A three-way version of the Mark One, this valve is used for combining or diverting service. Like the Mark One, it offers superior performance in liquid and gaseous services in simple, rugged design.
The Valtek GS (General Service) is a fully integrated valve-actuator-instrumentation package for a continuous process, non-critical flow loop controlled throughout the plant. Engineered from the ground up, the Valtek GS has achieved optimum performance at minimum total cost. It does this by pursuing the simple design philosophy of building an instrumented control valve package that is “everything it needs to be” by providing the breadth and depth of engineered control under the Valtek trusted name.
The Valtek Mark 100 is a large control valve designed to meet the needs of large applications. The Flowserve Mark 100 globe control offers the highest flow capacity, as well as fast, easy maintenance in both gas and liquid control. The Mark 100 also has longer stroke lengths, providing finer control and resulting in superior process control in smaller valve sizes.
The Mark 200 is one of the most dynamic Flowserve control valve offerings. Designed to accommodate a broad spectrum of trim options, the Mark 200 provides increased control and protection while significantly reducing noise and cavitation
The Mark Eight features a unique Y-style globe body that provides higher flow capacities and less process turbulence than conventional globe valves.
Fabricated from bar stock, the Mark Two is an extremely versatile automatic control valve. It is available in many different configurations with short lead times, even in high-pressure classes or special alloys.
The FlowTop control valve is a high-performance, general application valve coupled with the high-thrust FlowAct pneumatic diaphragm actuator. The modular design allows you to use the same body with different types of bonnets, trims and actuators. This leads to the reduction of spare parts and offers an interchangeable valve for a broad range of industries and applications.

Noise Reduction Control Valves
MegaStream control valve trim reduces control valve noise and vibration in a wide range of gas applications. MegaStream works to reduce noise by up to 30 dBa through staging, frequency shifting, attenuation and velocity control.
Stealth control valve trim reduces control valve noise and vibration in the most demanding gas applications. Stealth combines new advances in noise control with previously proven technologies to create the most effective device capable of eliminating noise in the most demanding services.
TigerTooth control valve trim creates multi-staged pressure drops that are effective in reducing noise and vibration in gas services and in eliminating cavitation in liquid services. TigerTooth effectively reduces noise and vibration in gas services by up to 35 dBa through staging, attenuation and velocity control. TigerTooth uses multi-stage pressure drops to eliminate cavitation in liquid services.
Cavitation Solution Control Valves
ChannelStream trim prevents cavitation from forming and minimizes hydrodynamic noise even in the most challenging liquid applications. Staged pressure drops eliminate cavitation by maintaining pressure above the vapor pressure—never allowing cavitation to form.
CavControl valve trim lowers cavitation damage by controlling the location and concentration of cavitation vapor bubble implosions in an area away from metal parts. CavControl trim utilizes a number of small, diametrically opposed flow holes through the walls of a special seat retainer.
