Swagelok has announced the release of the full-bore, bidirectional flow–capable GB series ball valve. The valve is engineered to provide flow rates at a working pressure of 6000 psig while simplifying installation, the company says, minimizing rework requirements, and delivering the reliable shutoff performance needed to keep workers safe and systems operating efficiently in a variety of demanding applications.
The ball valve can be widely deployed as a general-purpose ball valve.
Examples of applications include:
- hydraulic, injection and fire suppression systems in the oil and gas industry;
- isolation for compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle infrastructure; and,
- isolation in highly corrosive alkylation operations in the chemical and petrochemical industry.
The series ball valve is available in a variety of alloy materials such as 6-Moly, Alloy 2507, and Alloy C-276, as well as materials selected in accordance with NACE MR0175 for sour gas applications.
The valve also complies with ASME B31.1 and B31.3 standards for power and process piping systems.
