Full bore sanitary ball valves
Sanitary ball valves feature a full-bore design that enables full fluid flow with minimal pressure drop, making them ideal for handling viscous liquids or liquids containing particles in the food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
SBV is a hygienic ball valve designed for use as a product valve, in applications within food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The full bore design with zero flow restriction makes SBV the optimum choice for viscous or particulate liquids.
A precision made ball with a bore is positioned inside the valve body between two flanges and two PTFE valve seats. A 90° rotation of the valve stem is transferred to the ball and thereby opening or closing the valve. A special selected PTFE material grade secures long lifetime of the product wetted seals. Reliable valve stem sealing is achieved by the use of spring loaded and self adjusting seal rings. SBV is operated by a pneumatic actuator or manually operated by means of a handle with lockable positions. The valve is assembled with screws for easy inspection and maintenance.
The standard actuator is prepared for position indication with inductive proximity switches. The actuator is maintenance free. Two inspection holes in the bonnet connecting valve body and actuator allow for easy inspection of the stem seal tightness. Actuated valves are delivered NC (normally closed) and are easily rebuild to NO (normally open).
