Ball Valve – 2pc flange (soft seat)
Ball Valve – KHD-FSB1D
One-piece ball valves are made out of one body piece.
This means that the valve cannot be disassembled for cleaning.
However, there is a low risk of leakage because there are no body joints.
The advantage is that the valve will be low cost and robust.
A wafer-type ball valve is defined as a flangeless design.
Wafer-type ball valves feature a hinged, flap-like disk (the wafer) that is used to allow and restrict liquid flow.
Fire safe ball valves are designed to minimize fugitive emissions and downstream leakage when exposed to high temperatures during fires.
They differ from other industrial ball valves by remaining operable, or at least failing in a predictable manner, when exposed to high temperatures.
KHD-FSB1D ball valve
A direct mounting flange according to ISO 5211 is standard for these ball valves.
This feature allows an actuator to be mounted without the need for a mounting bracket and drive adapter.
This results in a significant cost reduction, a compact automated unit, and a higher level of safety for operators.
