ValvTechnologies adds new feature to valve product line
HOUSTON -- ValvTechnologies has added bidirectional flow capabilities to its existing V1 valve product line, announced President Kevin Hunt. This is the first backpressure-resistant, metal-seated ball valve on the market.
The new V1 valve line feature prevents the load spring from collapsing, providing tight shutoff or zero leakage in the preferred direction after a reverse flow condition. Most power plant ball valves are unidirectional which makes the valves vulnerable to failure when they are exposed to back pressure. The bidirectional flow capabilities protect against damage to the internal components and load spring when the valve is exposed to back pressure.
