For example, at 50 per cent open the flow is 50 per cent of the maximum. This characteristic would suit a plant whose gain was independent of the operating point. With an equal percentage control valve the gain increases exponentially for equal percentage lifts between 10 and 100 per cent. This inherent characteristic is clearly best used for a process whose gain decreases as the load increases. There are, however, rules of thumb for selecting control valves and matching inherent valve characteristics to common process control loops or processes where the valve pressure drop is fairly constant.

We will also explain the characterisation of system responses and provide an introduction to modelling various processes.

The resultant movement is indicated on a dial. A hairspring is also included (not shown) to take up any backlash that exists between quadrant and pinion; this has no effect on calibration. 5 per cent of full range for commercial models. Generally, the normal working pressure will be specified as 60 per cent of the full scale. Other types of these gauges include the twist tube, spiral tube, and helical tube. Diaphragm and bellows gauges are two other types of pressure sensor that were developed later.
