Investment in Performance.

ValvTechnologies’ investment cast version of the V1-1 severe service isolation valves pay off in low-pressure drain applications with the elimination the typical high-maintenance linear valves and allows the customer to take advantage of the benefits that come standard with the zero-leakage warranty, ensuring long service life. The V1-3 is available in both full and reduced-port models and, like all of our V series products and just as important, our HVOF RiTech® hard coatings enables the same critical mate lapped sealing surfaces – making it impervious to erosive, corrosive and abrasive services.

  1. Integral metal seat. With our proprietary HVOF RiTech® coating technology, the integral seat in ValvTechnologies’ valves is resistant to the attack of abrasive magnetite and ferrous oxides that may be seen in the steam flow.
  2. Body seal ring. ValvTechnologies employs a field proven seal ring technology to ensure sealing under all operating conditions, up to 1400°F. The body seal ring is loaded at a pressure higher than 20,000 psi. In addition, valves sized three inch and above contain a secondary Grafoil® seal to further guarantee reliability.
  3. Patented coating process. The sealing surfaces are overlaid with tungsten or chromium carbide using our exclusive HVOF RiTech® process. These surfaces have a hardness of 68 – 72 Rc to allow long periods of operation in the most severe conditions.
  4. Live-loaded gland area. The V Series’ sealing design features a four stud, live-loaded assembly designed for heavy industrial applications. The sealing material is high purity Grafoil® surrounded by stainless steel wire mesh 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.
  5. Blow-out proof stem 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.

  • Through conduit design: No tortuous flow path. When open it has the highest possible Cv’s. Minimized wear & tear. Benefit: Eliminated vibration, reduced maintenance
  • 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 & temperatures. Benefit: Increased reliability
  • Hardcoated & 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 & corrosion resistant, increased reliability, zero-leakage shutoff
  • Seat designs: Hardcoated, both ball & integral downstream seat to the end-cap to eliminate a potential leak path. Benefit: Increased reliability
  • Simplicity of design: Designed for ease of installation & maintenance. Benefit: Easily actuated, increased system reliability, increased efficiencies, ease of use, reduced maintenance
  • Stringent testing: Every valve is tested, documented & serialized. Benefit: Increased reliability, increased safety, total traceability

Case Study: Teamwork Builds Success

Location: Southeast United States
Plant type: Combined Cycle Power Plant
Industry: Power
Application: HP Steam

Background: During a scheduled weekend outage, a large combine cycle power plant discovered a valve that would not move. Upon further inspection, the customer found a damaged coupler on the valve’s mounting bracket. Assuming this damaged coupler was causing the valve to lock up, the customer decided against purchasing a new valve and instead simply replaced the damaged mounting bracket. Preparing to go back online, the customer found the valve would still not function.

Requirement: Immediate shipment of a V Series metal seated ball valve for main steam draining was required to avoid extended outage time.

Result: Receiving the emergency request on Saturday, ValvTechnologies quickly assembled a cross-functional team to provide the power plant with an immediate solution. Representatives from the Shipping, Warehouse and Service departments were called to the Houston office to solve the customer’s issue. The ValvTechnologies’ team was able to identify, assemble, test and ship a replacement zero-leakage valve by the end of day Saturday, the very same day the emergency request was received.

The customer received the valve Monday morning and immediately installed it. The new valve functioned perfectly and the customer was able to go back online, saving thousands of dollars in potential down time and revenue loss.
