The MK 80 is a temperature regulator that, because of the shorter stroke length of the sliding gate seats, is able to use a sealed actuator with a stainless steel diaphragm and does not require a bellow to operate, says the company. To seal the actuator, the upper and lower casings and diaphragm are heli-arc welded around the circumference to create a solid bond. This seal eliminates the need for any type of gasket, according to the manufacturer. The temperature regulator will react to smaller temperature changes and needs less time to travel to compensate or temperature variations resulting in more accurate regulation, states the company.
