The 3582 Series pneumatic valve positioners, shown in figure 1, and the Type 3582i electro-pneumatic valve positioners, shown in figure 2, are used with diaphragm-actuated, sliding-stem control valve assemblies. The pneumatic valve positioners receive a pneumatic input signal from a control device and modulate the supply pressure to the control valve actuator, providing an accurate valve stem position that is proportional to the pneumatic input signal.
Type 3582NS positioners meet typical requirements of the nuclear power industry. The Type 3582NS construction includes materials that provide superior performance at elevated temperature and radiation levels. The O-rings are EPDM (ethylene propylene) and the diaphragms are EPDM/Nomex. EPDM(1) demonstrates superior temperature capability and shelf life over nitrile. The Nomex diaphragm fabric demonstrates improved strength retention at elevated temperature and radiation conditions.
