Autoclave Engineers high-pressure ball valves have been designed
to provide superior quality for maximum performance within a
variety of valve styles, sizes, and process connections. Some of the
more unique design innovations include an integral one-piece trunion
mounted style ball and stem that eliminates the shear failure
common in two piece designs, re-torqueable seat glands that result
in longer seat life, and a low friction stem seal that reduces actuation
torque and enhances cycle life.
These ball valves can also be modified to incorporate the use of
special materials, seals for high temperature applications, subsea
models, and valve actuators.
When it comes to high-pressure applications, these ball valves
with the associated high-pressure components, provide the critical
performance demanded by the high pressure market.
