Use of forgings and the independent spring or bellows loaded floating seats which are always in contact with the ball make these valves the preferred solution for various critical applications like cryogenic, high temperature, low emission, Emergency Shutdown (ESD) or High Integrity Pressure Protectors (HIPPS) systems and sub-sea.
Valves can be equipped with bellow seals, steam flushing ports and protected bearings, to cope with medium/ high amounts of solids like tar sands
Approved by major end users and contractors and are designed to
meet SIL3 requirements according to
Double or triple stem seal design (with lip seals or o-rings or optionally with leak off chambers for predictive maintenance) allows us to meet and exceed the most stringent low fugitive emissions norms (ISO 15848) making our valves suitable to handle toxic or lethal fluid services.
The design will meet all requirements of critical service applications.
Seatsare always in contact with the ball to provide an effective tight seal even at low differential pressures.
