SIO manufactures Double Block and Bleed Valves in an extensive range of designs, materials, sizes, pressure classes and end connections that are designed in accordance to ASME B16.34 and where applicable API 6D or BS EN ISO 17292. The valves are fire-safe designed and include design features to ensure electrical continuity between ball, stem and body. Cryogenic and high temperature metal seated configurations are also available. All designs are forged for improved mechanical properties, pressure retention, and quality.
Fire-Safe Test approved
SIO Double Block & Bleed valves are designed in accrdance with API 607 & API SPEC 6FA.
Double body Gasket
All SIO Double Block & Bleed valves are equipped with two body gasket.The first body gasket is in soft material and the second in graphite(if not otherwise required), this com-bination assures the best seal characteristic in whatever corrosive service as well as giving a fire safe design.
In order to prevent static electricity which may light the fluid, static-conduction spring is set between the stem and the ball.
Anti Blow-out Proof Stem
The stem is designed with integral T-Type shoulder to provide blow-out proof effectively.The design assures that the stem can not be blown out of the valve in the case of the pack-ing being removed while the valve is under pressure.
Controlled Stem & Stuffing box Finish
Stem and stuffing box finish machining is a key point of control. The stem is made by cold rolling and stem surface finish is controlled by Ra=0.4, which can reduce friction of stem movement and ensure the seal. The stuffing box surface is controlled within Ra=1.6 for bet-ter sealing performance.
The solid ball used by SIO provides straight-through flow and real full-port performance characteristics. Hollow ball or cored cavity ball are not used for SIO products.
Longevity Of life
Special consideration was devoted to the at-tainment of enhanced life and operation of our valve throughout design, development, testing and manufacturing stages.Valve designs combined with the selection of advanced materials are such that long periods of inactivity should not affect the operations of efficiency.
Low Torque output
Seat designs, stem-bearing system and stem seal arrangements ensure consistent minimal torque values.
Valve design allows for high flow capacity in liquid or gas services regardless of whetherthe media is clean or dirty. Full port valves allow for pigging and ensure maximum flow capacity.
Simple user friendly design allows for quickand easy part replacement requiring minimal”Down Time”.
ISO FLANG EINTEGRATED
ISO 5211 mounting always integrated in thevalve as standard design.
Locking device is supplied as standard in orderto prevent unauthorized opening/closing. SIO locking device can lock the valve in eitherthe open or closed position and cannot bebreached by removing the lever.
INSPECTION AND TESTING
Every valve is subjected on routine basis todifferent non-destructive testing, like dye pen-etrant test on butt weld ends and on all hardfaced and cladding areas.
Non-destructive test are also carried out onthe critical areas as defined by ASME B16.34.
Optional examinations like:
Helium leak test
Personal performing NDT are trained and qual-ified to EN 473/ASNT-SNT-TC-1A.
Every valve is subject to a pressure test inaccordance with the standard API 598 or BS6755 Part-1. The rated pressure for the applicable pressureclass is in accordance with ASME B16.34 /EN 12516-1/2.
MARKING AND IDENTIFICATION
Each valve is identified on proper name plateand on valve body as required by MSS-SP25, ASME B16.34 Name plate carries allinformation on rating, size, valve body andtrim material, customer tags.On body, marking includes material designations (per ASTM) and heat code andof course the trade mark.
