Uni-Directional (Bi-Directional available within the same framework and can be converted after the valve is installed if required)
From -20F to +1500F
Top entry design eliminates the need to cut a valve out of service when maintenance is required, unlike unibody designs.
Ball is lapped 360 degrees eliminating coating transition peaks that create extreme friction and higher torques when cycled.
Articulating gland flange (live loaded) prevents asymmetric tightening of packing that causes side loading and packing leaks as with static glands.
Bonnet gasket is not susceptible to pipe stresses and memory, eliminating a potential leak path and re-alignment challenges. Inherent with 3 pc valve designs
Simple maintenance via top entry eliminates the challenges of realignment as is the case with 3pc designs. No risk of a body leak with the single bonnet design (redundant?)
Modular trim kit allows for simple, deliberate repair of a factory vacuum tested trim-set that is certified leak free vs. a cartridge assembly, and the associated risk of body damage during repair that may cause a leak path behind the cartridge damaging the welded valve and requiring removal.
JP500 HVOF Coating procedure applies our proprietary coating under compression vs. tension keeping the coating inherently on the ball and seats.
Scalable design for use in larger applications such as main steam, BFW and all other applications in a power plant that can benefit from a smaller envelope, and quarter turn ease of automation
Rotary operation extends life of packing vs. Y-Globe type pulling the stem through the packing gland.
Quick, quarter turn operation of valve prevents high velocities across seating surfaces as is the case with slow opening linear valves.
Socket wall thickness designed such that Post Weld Heat Treatment is not required.
Can be custom ordered with weld pups factory installed to eliminate field welding of dissimilar metals in transition areas ( ex. F91 to F22)
