Throttling valves are used to regulate the amount of fluid that passes through the valve. Like an on/off valve, a throttling valve can be fully open to allow maximum flow or fully closed to stop flow. But a throttling valve can also be partially open to let some of the fluid pass through. Throttling valves can be used to control downstream conditions including the flow rate, pressure, or temperature.
