Ball valves for steam applications


Steam systems which perform well have been designed with care using products of the highest quality
Spirax Sarco has 80 years of experience and knowledge of steam systems and the equipment associated with them. Occasionally it is essential to isolate sections of pipeline or plant, either by hand or remote control. Spirax Sarco ball valves do this safely, predictably, and reliably because they are designed and manufactured specically for steam. The severity of steam does not allow compromise, it requires the best in design. All Spirax Sarco ball valves meet these requirements, resulting from many years of dedicated research and development, manufacturing investment and crucial applications experience.

Features of good design


Stem packing system
PTFE, R-PTFE, PDR 0.8, graphite or PEEK 'O' ring seals plus a belleville washer provide hermetic closure and reduce leeks to atmosphere.

Ease of use
Ergonomically designed.

Blow out proof stem


Available in all Spirax Sarco ball valves.

Integrated seat and body gasket


Less components and easier maintenance. (Only available for M10V and M10S ranges).

Antistatic device
Antistatic device, conforming to BS 5351, to discharge static electricity build-up on the ball.

Floating ball concept


Our oating ball design combined with soft seat offers tight shut-off according to ANSI Class VI.

User benets
All Spirax Sarco products comply with the European Pressure Equipment Directive 97 / 23/EC. No leaks from the valve - single seat/seal arrangement. High capacity, low pressure drop, low energy loss. No sticking or erratic movement even at high pressures - low operating torque. Automatic recovery of seal wear - Belleville washers. Easily automated - ISO mountings as standard on certain models. Seat and seal materials to suit the conditions; PTFE, R-PTFE, PEEK, PDR 0.8. ISO 9001/2000 - traceability of materials and relevant certication. Spirax Sarco's guarantee of worldwide knowledge, service and technical support.
Note: Du-pont, PEEK and PDR 0.8 are registered tradenames.

Seat types and materials


A exible seat provides tight shut-off at high and low pressures, and reduces wear and valve torque. Single seat/body gasket arrangement is available for certain models. Cavity ller seats are also available. The complete valve is specially designed for steam applications. PTFE is the material of choice where low friction, high durability, excellent thermal resistance or chemical inertness are required. Recommended for saturated steam up to 145 psig (10 barg). The steam seat for excellence. Specially developed by Du-pont for Spirax Sarco it allows elevated temperatures (500F / 260C); and a low coefcient of friction. Recommended for saturated steam up to 250 psig (17.5 barg). Polyetheretherketone is a tough, high temperature, thermoplastic with high tensile and shear strength, excellent creep, fatigue and chemical resistance. Recommended for saturated steam up to 565 psig (39 barg). The superior compression and heat resistance of glass lled PTFE (25% of glass ller) reduces wear at high loads. Specially recommended for clean steam applications.
