  • Control valve [r]: A valve used within an industrial plant or elsewhere to control operating conditions such as pressure, temperature, liquid level and flow rate by fully or partially opening or closing in response to signals received from controllers that compare a "setpoint" to a "process variable" whose value is provided by independent sensors that monitor changes in such conditions. [e]
  • Closed loop control [r]: A control system in which the controller has access to signals containing information about the current state of the plant (the object or system to be controlled) during the time that the controller is in operation. [e]
  • Relief valve [r]: Type of valve used to protect pressure vessels and other equipment from being subjected to pressures that exceed their design limits. [e]
