DSS TECHNICAL MANUAL

RIZZIO Spa

1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
DSS valves satisfy IBC code par. 1.3.24 and solve the uncertainty leaking risks and all the very complex and delicate tightening procedures typical of the Line Blind valves.

2. DSS - MAIN FEATURES


Auto emptying and very sturdy body, bonnet and cover entirely bolted to protect the trim, to grant internal discs movement on specific guides and to reduce any type of maintenance. DSS can be used in any possible position. Double, independent, symmetrical, bi-directional and no floating blinded discs with a central no floating cast wedge that segregates pipelines in two independent isolate parts. The discs are realized from flat stainless steel to prevent any possible passing leakage from the parts. Capacity to segregate two different fluids at difference pressures. Tightness recovering having pipelines in pressure. Double primary metallic seat on the discs also for propylene oxide. Double secondary dynamic and energized PTFE seat for bubble tightness. Rising shaft for a distant visual indication of the valve position. Lockable hand wheel or lockable hydraulic actuator. Lateral inspection door for ambient air communication with the internal body and maintenance procedure inspections. No dismantling procedures are required to segregate the valves and so very low operating costs. One or two option draining valves will make possible the recovering of the internal mixing of cargo product on a return tank. Moreover DSS valves can be used according to the DEMO C 2002_05 rev 0 drawing and so with only one butterfly valve on condition that it is provided with the additional metal seat according to Fire Safe Design. The segregation can be identified from the group valves composed by one DSS and one 2D Butterfly. The two draining valves can be used to check the two independent chambers and to control any possible leak between them. The segregation is grant from several factors : the DSS is protected in order to avoid any big loss leakage. Also in case of damaged seat the valve will never allow the passage of big flow but only of few drops; anyway there will be 2 + 2 seats to protect. The opposite side on butterfly valve will have moreover 2 seats, which avoids the fluid contact towards the DSS valve. The chambers can be inspected in differential mode, in order to verify any possible leakage and its location. Also in case of two non-miscible fluids in pressure one against the other there will be the possibility to collect them from the two draining valves in two independent lines.
