Model. No. VS4 – VS5 – VS6

Valves suitable for Gas (LNG, LPG, Condensate and other marketable fractions) processing, dehydration, refrigeration, liquefaction, storage, transportation and distribution, also suitable for chemical and petrochemical refining.

 

 

GENERAL CONSTRUCTION
 

Trunnion ball valves have the obturator bounded by trunnions which do not allow axial displacements of the ball itself in the flow direction; line pressure compresses the seat onto the ball, the contact between surfaces generates the valve sealing; trunnion standard construction ensure automatic cavity relief in case of overpressure in body cavity; these valves can be selected for a wide range of applications with no specific limits to sizes and pressures.

 

MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION
  • Stainless steel
  • Nickel alloys
  • Titanium
