ValvXpress® automated packages are the perfect solutions for customers who demand quick delivery of a zero-leakage automated valve solution for severe service water and steam applications. The package includes the superior quality of the V1-1 valve and ValvTechnologies’ actuator, backed with the best four-year guarantee in the industry.

ValvXpress® pre-engineered, automated packages are compact, robust and ready to ship.

The ValvXpress® actuator:
ValvXpress® automation can be used with any ValvTechnologies valve up to 4” in size with the added bonus of our innovative mounting kit with integral stop and actuator supplied as a complete package.

ValvXpress® automation:

  • The actuators utilize a rack and pinion design which provides constant torque output in a compact package. The torque output is proportional to the air supply pressure. Double acting and spring return models are the same compact design.
  • Hard anodized body with high-temperature seals
  • Maximum working pressure 142 psi / 10 bar
  • Maximum working temperature 302°F / 150°C

ValvXpress® mounting kit:

  • Prevents stem driving into ball, avoiding damage
  • Actuator cannot be installed in the wrong orientation
  • Air gap dissipates more heat, prevents overheating
  • Integral stop safeguards valve from over travel
  • Easy installation without voiding the warranty
  • Pressure classes 150 to 4500

The ValvXpress® program provides customers with three different options:

  • The Total Package
  • Build-Your-Own
  • Actuator-Only

Pre-engineered package includes:

  • Half thru 4” metal-seated V1-1 ball valve
  • Socket weld and butt weld end connections
  • A105, F22, F91 body materials
  • 2500#-4500# pressure classes
  • Valve operating conditions to 1400°F (760°C)
  • High-cycle pneumatic rack and pinion actuator
  • Hard anodized coating
  • High-temperature Viton® seals
  • High-cycle mounting hardware
  • Limit switch with position indicator – 2-SPDT, quick set cam, IP67, NEMA 4/4X

  • Integral Metal Seat – With patented ceramet and our exclusive HVOF RiTech® coating process, the integral seat in ValvTechnologies’ rotary operating valves are resistant to attack of abrasive magnetite or ferrous oxides in the steam flow.
  • Body Seal Ring – ValvTechnologies employs a field proven seal ring technology to ensure sealing under all operating conditions, up to 1400°F (760°C). The body seal ring is loaded at a pressure higher than 20,000 psi (1379 bar).
  • Patented Coating Process – The sealing surfaces are overlaid with tungsten or chromium carbide using our exclusive HVOF RiTech® coating process. These surfaces have a hardness of 68-72 Rc to allow operation in the most severe conditions.
  • Blow-out Proof Stem – ValvTechnologies’ design utilizes a one piece, hard-faced, blow-out proof stem that is inserted through the inside of the body cavity eliminating the possibility of blow-out through the gland area.
  • Live Loaded Gland Area – The V1-1 gland packing design features a four-stud, live-loaded assembly designed for heavy industrial applications. The packing material is high purity Grafoil® surrounded by carbon fiber/inconel anti-extrusion rings. The six Belleville springs (per stud) provide constant load pressure through extreme thermal shocks and prevent wear leaks in high-cycle service.

  • Quick delivery. Benefit: Improved operational performance, decreased downtime, increased profitability
  • Turnkey system. Benefit: Cost savings through inventory reduction
  • Single source solution. Benefit: Supply chain optimization
  • Four-year warranty*: The very best in the industry. Includes valve and actuator automation packages. Benefit: Lower cost of ownership, increased reliability

  • Fixed position – quarter turn: No seating torques required. Benefit: Minimized stem wear, lower cost of ownership
  • Hardened blowout proof stem: One piece, inserted through the body & shouldered. Eliminates the weak link of collared & pinned designs. Benefit: Improved safety
  • Metallic body seal ring: Increases body integrity by eliminating external leakage. Benefit: Improved reliability, zero-leakage shutoff
  • Live-loaded packing gland: Minimum four bolt configuration with shallow stuffing box. Ensures consistent torque at variable pressures and temperatures. Benefit: Increased reliability
  • Hardcoated and mate lapped seats: High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) RiTech® chrome carbide hardcoating with a Rockwell C of up to 72. Mate-lapped seats. Benefit: Wear and corrosion resistant, increased reliability, zero-leakage shutoff
  • Seat designs: Hardcoated, both ball and integral downstream seat to the end-cap to eliminate a potential leak path. Benefit: Increased reliability
  • Simplicity of design: Designed for ease of installation and maintenance. Benefit: Easily actuated, increased system reliability, increased efficiencies, ease of use, reeduced maintenance
  • Stringent testing: Every valve is tested, documented & serialized. Benefit: Increased reliability, increased safety, total traceability

Actuator

ValvXpress actuatorThe actuators utilize a rack and pinion design which provides constant torque output in a compact package.
The torque output is proportional to the air supply pressure. Twin horizontally opposed cylinders incorporate piston guides to ensure engagement between the rack and pinion. Double acting and spring return models are of comparable compact design.

  • Hard anodized body with high-temperature seals
  • Maximum working pressure 142 psi / 10 bar
