Valves for Oil and Gas
Monday, 17 June2013
Forged Floating Ball Valves are used mainly in Oil,Gas Transmission and Distribution Pipeline,Petroleum ,Chemistry, ChemicalFiber, Metallurgy, Paper Pulp etc. The forging material can ensuresufficientrigidity and strength under maximum rated operation pressure without inherentflaw of cast.The Forged Steel Body assures uniform fine grain structure andtoughness free from inevitablecasting defects such as porosity, abscess,crackle, gas hole. Enough wall thickness of separateBody and Adapters and highstrength tie bolts are convenient for valve maintenance and sufficient tobearthe stress of pipe.
Design and manufacture -API 6D / BS5351Pressure-temperature rating-ASME B16.34Faceto face dimensions -ASME B16.10Flangetype and dimensions –ASME B16.5Butt-welded end –ASMEB16.25Inspection and test –API598, ASME B16.34Sizerange –NPS ½”up toNPS8”Pressure rating –150lbto 300lb
.ForgedSteel Floating Ball Valves fire safe is designed in compliance with API607-4
, API 6FA and BS 6755 Part 2. Each possible leakage partsbetween body and ball, middle flange,body and stem is designed asmetal-to-metal contact, when non-metal resilient seats are damagedin a fire orunusual temperature increasing, the upstream medium pressure push the ball intothedownstream metal seat lip to cut off the line fluid and prevent the internalleakage due to asecondary metal-to-metal seals.
Blow-out Proof StemDesign.T
he stem is designed with integral T-type shoulder toprovide blow-out proof effectively. The lower end of stem is terraced andinstalled from the lower internal part of stem. It is internally inserted as theback seat function to assure stem sealing safety at allpressures.
Locking Devices (on request).
To prevent wrong operations of valve switch andimproper actionsby unpredictable, vibration of the line, the valve is equippedwith locking hole at the full open and fullclose position of the valve, and thevalve can be locked with a pad lock. Especially this lockingdevice is uniquelyadvantageous when the valve is installed outdoors or on the production line of flammable petroleum or chemicals.
