SKU: 4050 Categories: , Tags: ,


The Shearstream HP Segmented Ball Valve is a segmented, ball control valve that provides exceptional control and rangeability for the process industries.

Industry Sectors:

  • Pulp & paper
  • Basic (organic & inorganic)
  • Water
  • Midstream Transportation
  • Conventional Steam

Design Range:

Size Range: NPS 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16

Pressure Class Range: ASME class 150, 300, 600

Seating Material: Metal or soft seat

Shearstream HP Features:

  • Segmented ball controls very low flow rates and can open up to large flow rates, resulting in a 300:1 turndown
  • Segmented ball provides shearing action as it moves through the seat to cut through debris and provide reliable shutoff
  • Metal, soft, and heavy duty seat options provide reliable tight shutoff for a variety of applications and process conditions

One-piece body

  • High performance ensured regardless of flange torque loads
  • Seal tightness not altered by piping forces, as in two-piece bodies
  • One leak path eliminated

Segmented V-notch ball

  • Clogging reduced
  • “V” shaped orifice exceeds 300:1 rangeability
  • Excellent shearing action in fibrous fluid mediums

Tight shut-off seats

  • Metal seal provides greater than ANSI Class IV shutoff
  • Soft seals achieve ANSI Class VI shutoff

Self-centering ball

  • Seal installation improved and simplified
  • Shutoff further improved

No-shim seal

  • Servicing and installation problems reduced

Thick-walled retainer

  • Valve’s normal service life extended in erosive environments

Flangeless design standard

  • Reduced cost

Separable flange option

  • Bolt length reduced, avoiding bolt stretch and leakage in event of fire
  • Flange bolting aligns easier
  • Reduced cost with alloys

Integral flange option

  • Bolt length reduced, avoiding bolt stretch and leakage in event of fire
