Bonomi North America Introduces New API 608 Flanged Ball Valves For Severe Service Applications

Valpres flanged full-port floating ball valves from Bonomi are built for applications such as oil, gas, petrochemical processing and water treatment. The new valves conform to the design requirements of API 608.

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) - Bonomi North America has introduced a new line of Valpres flanged full-port floating ball valves for severe service applications such as oil, gas, petrochemical processing and water treatment. Standard body materials include carbon (A352 LCB) and stainless steel (A351 CF8M) in sizes ½-inch through 6 inches. Other materials are available on a made-to-order basis.

The new two-piece bolted-body valves conform to the design requirements of API 608 with temperature and pressure range meeting ASME B16.34 specifications. Connections and face-to-face dimensions are designed to ASME B16.10 and B16.5. They are fire safe to API 607/ISO 10497/API 6FA. They are also ISO-15848 fugitive emissions compliant.

Valpres API 608 floating ball valves offer an operating temperature range of -196°C to 420°C (-320˚F to 788˚F), suitable for use in standard, high-temperature and cryogenic applications. They are rated to ANSI Classes 150 and 300 throughout the size range and to Class 600 in sizes ½-inch through 4 inches, depending on the application.

Standard seat material is RPTFE. Optional materials include PEEK, PCTFE, VESPEL® and metal to metal (TCC or CCC). FKM seals are standard, with HNBR, EPDM, FFKM, (P)VMQ and graphite available as options. Other standard features include an anti-blowout stem and anti-static device. Other options include extended stem for insulation, extended bonnet for high temperatures and extended bonnet for low temperatures.

The new valves are available with manual or automatic operators. As with all Valpres valves, the new valves are perfectly matched to the company’s Valbia brand electric and pneumatic actuators. As a package, Bonomi valves and actuators offer the most reliable automation performance in the industry.
