We have well qualified engineers who are specially trained in the design of ball valves. The department is equipped with the latest AutoCAD design software for 2-D drafting and 3-D modeling. Structural calculations, finite element analysis (FEA), dynamic analysis, and product validation are also done with advanced software when appropriate.
Floating ball valves are normally seat supported and the seats are not self relieving. Special designs are available for self-relieving seats.
Standard features of trunnion mounted ball valves include double block and bleed, cavity self-relief, trunnion supported ball, and double sealing at body joints.
Special valves are developed to suit customer requirements which include but are not limited to:
High operating frequency ball valves for gasoline stations
Low fugitive emissions
High temperature conditions up to 650 °C (1202 °F)
Y-type bellows sealed globe valves for sodium service up to 560 °C (1040 °F)
Globe valves for chlorine service to Eurochlor standards.
Valve designs are routinely updated to the latest international standards.
Our well stocked library includes Microfinish product standards and other technical reference books.
