Ind. Tank Bottom Steam Valves
FD Series 5, 1/2” – 6”
Two-Way Tank Bottom valves are suited for general purpose tank, vessel, and reactor applications. Angle Stem Tank Bottom Valves provide actuator clearance on jacketed or insulated vessels.
- Unique Adjust-O-Seal® feature allows in-line valve adjustment to compensate for normal wear on valve seats. Note: FD Series Tank Bottom Steam valves have o-rings.
- Pad radius facilitates efficient drainage and reduces the pocket area above the ball.
- Upstream and downstream bubble-tight sealing capability allows valve body cleaning, purging, and draining.
- Stem assembly accommodates IMI PBM Direct Mount Actuation for accurate alignment and increased cycling life.
- Available in Angle Stem versions for applications where automation may interfere with tank head or jacket.
- Valves are rated for full vacuum.
- Standard bottom-entry stem provides protection from inadvertent stem removal. Engagement between the slot and ball is specially designed for high torque applications.
