Key Specifications / Features
The trunnion ball valve is a form of quarter-turn valve which uses a fixed/supported ball to control flow through it. The trunnion ball valve is for shutt off purpose.
Reliable Operation and Low Torque
The seat rings are floating, free to move against the ball along the valve centerline. The trunnion / trunnion support together with bearings adsorb the side load created by the pressure acting on the ball. At low pressure, the seat tight sealing is ensured by the preload of the springs acting on the seat rings. Along with the pressure increasing, the process medium pressure pushes the seat rings against the ball to provide additional load for tight sealing.
The ball and stem are independent with each other to minimize the effect of the side thrust generated by the pressure acting on the ball.
The ball is fixed by trunnion for size 4” & smaller or trunnion support for size 6” & larger.
Self Relieving Seats（Single Piston Effect Seats）
Medium pressure, both upstream and downstream, creates a resultant thrust to the seat rings against the ball to assure tight sealing; Medium pressure acting in the body cavity creates a resultant thrust to push the seat rings away from the ball.
The single piston design permits the automatic release of any over pressure in the body cavity when the valve is in the fully open or fully closed position.
Double Block and Bleed
When the ball is in the closed position, each seat seals off the process medium independently at the same time between the up/down stream and body cavity; it allows bleeding of the trapped cavity pressure (DBB) through drain or vent valve. The double block and bleed function makes it possible to flush the valve under pressure and verify that the seats are sealing properly.(Fig. 7)
Secondary Metal to Metal Seat
Standard seat design is primary soft seal, and secondary metal to metal seal. Seat insert is designed as pressed-in type which is easy for maintenance.(Fig. 1) Optional design with primary metal to metal seal and secondary soft seal seat design is also available upon request.(Fig. 2)
- a) External leakage prevention
All the possible external leakage point between stem and gland flange, gland flange and body, body and adapter are sealed with primary O-ring then secondary graphite gasket. When fire burned out the primary O-ring seal, the secondary graphite gasket seal still can prevent the process medium from external leakage.(
- b) Internal leakage prevention
When fire burned out the primary O-ring seal between the floating seat ring and adapter, also the seat insert between seat ring and ball, the secondary graphite seal between seat ring and adapter, and seat ring & ball metal to metal contact preloaded by spring will minimize the internal process medium leakage.
Emergency Sealant Injection System
Each valve of size 6” and larger (or smaller size on request), is equipped with sealant injection located at stem and seats area. The injection is integrated with check valve to provide backup sealing, also a check valve is equipped at front of seat sealant injection to avoid blowing out in case wrong operation. When the soft sealing materials (seat inserts and o-rings) are damaged and leakage happened by fire or other accident, the sealant can be injected through the injection fittings.
Spring plus graphite type anti-static device are applied between the ball, stem, gland flange and body, to keep the electrical continuity between all the metallic components, and ensure the resistance lower than the most severe service requirement.
Ball Seat Alignment
Mechanical stops are equipped on all valves to ensure the ball is never to be over rotated.
Environment Friendly Valve
Accurate machining of stem, gland and body sealing surfaces with double sealing (O-ring primary seal plus graphite gasket seal) between the body and bonet ensure the low emission which is complying with the most severe pollution-control regulations. The test certifications are available on request.
