LIVE-LOADED STEM PACKING

The standard stem packing is a 5-ring packing set with either graphite or PTFE and can be modified to include a live load system. The packing system can also include dual sets with leak detection and emergency sealant injection.

HIGH TEMPERATURE TRIM

Trims can be supplied for a wide range of high temperature service. Non-metal seated trims are available in non-steam applications to 600 deg F. Metal seated designs for temperatures to 800 deg F are available.

FULL & REDUCED PORT

All valves NPS 2” and larger are available in full or reduced port. Special configurations and trim sizes are available for additional reduction or limiting Cv.

DOUBLE BLOCK & BLEED

Double Block and Bleed is available on any size and pressure class. A simple change to the core, adding a seal on both ends, will isolate the body cavity. The body can then be vented and checked for pressure buildup verifying the double block. In the event that a valve has trapped body pressure the self-relieving feature will equalize with the upstream side of the valve. An important differentiation between the Chromatic DBB and a standard ball valve is how it relieves this pressure. The standard double block and bleed valve is designed with self-relieving seats to the downstream side. If a standard ball valve has a leaking upstream seat, then upstream pressure can continually pass downstream. The HCV maintains its Reliable Mechanical Wedge Seal on the downstream side providing a more effective seat.
