True double block & purge performance within one valve body by means of two independent, separate shut-off discs (independent closure elements). Proven under critical/severe service conditions
Active, controlled and constant mechanical seating force when closed due to the central split-wedge-ball device
safe and reliable tight shut-off
Flat or round body valve design
Mounting options: flanges or welding ends
With reduced or full-bore passage
Long-lasting metal-to-metal seats, corrosion and wear resistant
Smooth tubular passage ln the open position (valve body free of solid particles)
Can be installed in any orientation
Designed to customer specifications and German or International standards
Positive tight shut-off due to active & controlled mechanical sealing force when shut
Excellent performance, no risk of jamming due to internal split-wedge-ball arrangement
True Double Block & Purge within one valve body
Low wearing due to hardsurfaced seats
No build up of coke particles in the body due to guide plates and continuous steam purge
Suitable for media with extremely high solid-particle content
Materials selected to suit operating conditions
Specially developed technique for crackfree hard-surfacing of the seats of ensures long-term maintenance-free service
No jamming due to forces and moments resulting from the piping system
Force release of the discs prior to opening the valve (minimized wear)
Central sealing force due to ball-wedge mechanism
Seats continuously covered in the end position, thus preventing deposit build-up on the seat surfaces
3 years maintenance free
