Meters are available with built-in needle valves (CVT™ ), high precision metering valves (HRT™) with “non-rising stems”, or with no valves. The higher cost of HRT™ valves is justified whenever high sensitivity control and resolution are desirable particularly in conjunction with metering tubes of very low flowrates.
When meters with valves are ordered the valve cartridges are installed at the inlet. For vacuum service it is recommended that meters are ordered with valves at the outlet.
