Wafer Ball Valves Reduce Space, Cost And Weight
Bonomi North America introduced wafer stainless steel, full-port ball valves, a flow-enhancing alternative to high-performance butterfly valves in OEM applications, skid-mounted systems or any tightly-confined area. Designed for use in ANSI Class 150 flange applications, the new Valpres 725000 Series can reduce space, cost and weight with maximum flow and minimum pressure loss.
Built with a stainless steel body, ball and stem, the new valves feature an anti-static stem design suitable for environments such as refining, chemical handling and processing. They are available in seven sizes: 1-inch, 1-1/4-inch, 1-1/2-inch, 2-inch, 2-1/2-inch, 3-inch and 4-inch. Aligning lugs on the valve body allows the 725000 to be installed securely directly between two ANSI 150 raised-face flanges. They are available in smaller sizes than offered by high-performance butterfly valves and are more cost-effective in comparable sizes.
A standard ISO 5211 mounting pad simplifies valve actuation. The 725000 Series is also available in automated valve packages with performance matched Bonomi electric and pneumatic actuators.
PTFE ball seats are standard, with optional steam service trim. Stem seals are PTFE and FKM. With lever handle, the new valves are lockable in the open or closed position. They are TUV T.A. Luft approved. They also meet NACE MR 0175/ISO 15156 and NACE MR 0103 standards.
