A throttling valve restricts flow to regulate flow, pressure or temperature. A control valve is a throttling valve equipped with an actuator that acts within a control loop. In the case of a system providing process air to aeration tanks, the control valve opens and closes to adjust the flow into part of an aeration tank to control the dissolved oxygen concentration or the level of mixing energy.
