Technology for a clean enviroment

ARGUS BALL VALVES AND THEIR CONSTRUCTION

As standard ARGUS ball valves have dual spring-loaded


spindle seals, which ensure optimum resistance to leakage
under even the severest conditions. At the same time, these
ball valves are very versatile and are used in widely differing
applications.
· Valve stem with dual seals
· Spring-loaded main seals for proper seal function, even
under dynamic, mechanical and thermal loading.
· Leakage monitor connection can be provided as an option.
· Bearing and seals for the valve stem are functionally
separated.
· Dual seals on the housing joint (one seals is either
elastomer or PTFE, the other is Graphite seal), here too,
leakage monitor drilling are an option.
· An additional external non-preloaded sealing gland can be
provided.
· The sealing system can be installed on an extended valve
stem if required (e.g. for extreme temperatures, or
insulated pipework)
· Ball valve body is a steel forging or stainless steel
· Any necessary quality assurance measures can be
accommodated (QA Manual to ISO 9001, audited and
certified by DQS –the certification division of the Germany
Quality Assurance Association-).
· Valve stem seals can be replaced with the valve installed.

requirements of even an extreme interpretation of TA-Luft. Under
EPA conditions, this leakage rate corresponds to a concentration
of harmful substances less than 0.01 ppm, a value that can
hardly be measured on site.

TOUGH TEST CONDITION – IMPRESSIVE RESULTS

In cooperation with Lloyd’s Register, ARGUS tested a standard


ball valve (type FK) at different temperatures and without
maintenance. During and on completion of 178,000 operating
cycles with non-lubricating nitrogen at 55 bar, the leakage at the
spindle gland was measured using helium as test medium. The
test results at temperatures up to 200 °C are given in the table in
fig. 2. Using EPA Method 21 procedures, no emissions were
detected in any of the tests.

and after a fire. Fire in above mentioned plants or installations
would cause disastrous consequences, if there were no
possibilities of localization.
An essential prerequisite for the control of fire is the maintenance
of operability and sealing efficacy of shut-of valves under the
influence of the fire. This aspect led to the term “fire safe”, which
means that shut-off valves present reliable characteristics
regarding their function in case of fire so that the fire cannot
spread due to the following out of flammable liquids.

APPLICATION
An industrial valve is required to be tight internally as well as
externally. Due to their basic design such as quarter-turn shut-off
and pressure operation and pressure supported sealing system
ball valves guarantee the best technical prerequisites for the safe
application. At trunnion mounted ball valves internal sealing is
effected at the upstream position. Under pressure the seat ring
will be pressed against the fixed ball. In case of fire metal seats
guarantee the emergency sealing. (Fig.1). Argus fire safe test stand.

hardness of Arguloy types at high temperatures is, however, a Floating ball seat system
crucial importance. As shown in the diagram (Figure 8), a clear
decrease in hardness does not occur until above approx. 600 °C
(1100 °F). Arguloy coatings therefore maintain their very good
resistance to abrasive wear even at high temperatures.
Furthermore, the Arguloy coating have a minimum thickness of
500 microns and its grades display a marked resistance to
adhesive wear.

Due to their very high content of nickel or cobalt and elements


such as chrome and tungsten, Arguloy hard alloys are resistant to
corrosion in most environments. By choosing between nickel-

As a coating material for metallic valve seals, Arguloy is suitable


for the following cases:
§ Arguloy can be used at continuous operating
temperatures of up to 550 °C (1000 °F).
§ In conjunction with special materials for the valve body,
Arguloy is also suitable for even higher temperatures.
§ Arguloy is recommended thanks to its metallic bond
with the substrate, its impact resistance, and its hot
hardness whenever the sealing system is stressed to
its hardest, as for instance by media containing a high

Optional Executions

Stem extension

Are specified for buried service beneath


flooring or inaccessible positions..
Extended stem shaft is supported in
bearings in outer shaft to prevent side
loading of the stem.

ARGUS ball valve for granulated media (plastics


industry)

ARGUS ball valves with steam jacket.

Gearbox or lever operators


ARGUS Welded Body Design.
Depending to the valve sizes are specified to provide lever or
gear boxes (single and double speed type) in order to provide an
easy operation or increase the cycle time of valve operation to
prevent pipe line hammer.
