Seating Material: Soft or Metal
These ball valves provide greater efficiency, safety and control enabled by pressure-absorbing bearings, seatsealing action and anti-static design. Plant and personnel are protected by an anti-blowout design that ensures the stem is retained by the stem cover. The environmental compliance is assured by zero-emisssion design. It also features reduced actuation costs. It is able to provide this since the seat design minimizes the torque required to operate the valve without losing the sealing power.
Other features include:
- Forged or cast components-bolted body design
- Soft seated or metal seated
- Double block bleed
- Self relieving or double piston effect seats
- Antistatic device
- Anti blow out stem
