The unique properties of the Ball Segment Valves are that it can handle both liquid and dry abrasive products from fine powder to course abrasives. It has an opening where materials cannot build up, accumulate, or be captured within the valve body.
The Ball Segment Valves are used in a wide range of applications in the pharmaceutical, chemical, food and mining industries.
The valve can be supplied with an optional full fail-safe system. In this case, the valve closes whenever there is a loss of electric power or compressed air/nitrogen. When a failure occurs, a pressurized accumulator tank filled with air/nitrogen closes the valve. After the valve is closed, the inflatable seal is pressurized to close the space between the Ball Segment and the valve housing. Our standard Ball Segment Valve is equipped with an inflatable seal.
There are two main advantages of the inflatable seal
- Reduced wear and tear because the seal is inflated when the valve is fully closed and deflated before the valve is opened.
- Withstand pressure up to 10 bar and full vacuum.
