Control Valve

A Control valve is valve, typically a globe valve mounted with an actuator. Globe valves are ideal for flow control, as they allow a consistent and precise opening and closing of the flow-path. Any valve, however, mounted with an actuator can be defined as a "control valve" since this is a description of their function, rather than their configuration. Though not suited for this function, ball valves too can be used as control valves.
