Seat Sealing Feature

a) Upstream seat: The seats can be moved slightly along the valve axis, upstream line pressure acting on the seat area (A1) does not equalize against on the seat area (A2).The differential force in the area (D1) pushes the seat tightly against the ball surface resulting in a tight effective seal. (Fig.1)
b) Downstream seat: When the body cavity pressure is lower than the downstream pressure, the net pressure difference acting over area (D2) pushes the downstream seat tightly against the ball surface creating a positive seal. (Fig.1)

Self Relieving Seat

Self Relieving Seat

When the body cavity pressure exceeds the downstream seat spring preloaded force, the differential force in the area (D2) pushes the down stream seat away from the ball, the body cavity pressure will automatically relieve. And then the seat returns to the ball under spring action. (Fig.1)

Double Block and Bleed

Double Block and Bleed

When the ball is in the closed position, each seat of the ball valve can cut off the medium independently on the upstream and downstream side to realize double-block functions. The body cavity are isolated from each side of the valve, the body cavity pressure could be released through the vent valve. (Fig.2)

Blow-out Proof Stem

The stem with integral T-type shoulder, supported by gland, can be guaranteed not to be blow-out by the medium even if at abnormal risen pressure in the cavity. (Fig.3)

Blow-out Proof Stem

Anti-Static Device

During turning of the stem to opening and closing the valve, static electricity is easily caused by sparks generated by friction. Antistatic devices, assembled by a spring & a grounding plunger, assure the electrical continuity, between ball and stem, stem and body, to prevent the possible risk of fire or explosion.(Fig.3)

Emergency Sealant Injection System

Emergency Sealant Injection System

For 6 inch and larger trunnion mounted ball valves, or small valves on request, special sealants may be injected through a sealant injection fittings that are located on the adapter and the gland to obtain emergency sealing, in case of seat or stem O-ring are damaged and leakage occur by fire or other accidental. Fittings also internally installed a second check valve t o provide backup sealing. (Fig.4)

Fire safe Design

a) Internal leakage prevention
When seat insert, O-ring and spacer are damaged in a fire, the line pressure and the seat preloaded spring push the seat metal lip into the ball surface to cut off the line fluid and prevent the internal leakage to reach fire-safe purpose. Besides, the seat graphite packing can prevent fluid leakage from between the valve body and the seat. (Fig.5)

b) External leakage prevention
A combination of O-ring and graphite gasket o n body / adapter connection, body / gland connection, and stem / gland joint, can prevent the external leakage. When O-rings are damaged after a fire, body gasket, gland gasket, and stem packing, can reach sealing function and prevents external fluid leakage. (Fig.6)
