The Italian valve manufacturer Omal has launched a new stainless steel flanged ball valve series, thought for the chemical industry: the Pro-Chemie 60, which can achieve 60,000 cycles with no fugitive emissions.
The Pro-Chemie 60 comes as either a manual or an automated option (using OMAL scotch-yoke actuators) and is also available with SIL3/ATEX certificates. It is available from DN15 – DN150 in short (F4 Face To Face) or long pattern (F1 Face to Face) in pressure ranging PN16-40 (EN 1092-1) with double acting or spring return.
Soft PTFE/glass seats are available as standard configuration, with TFM1600, PTFE + graphite or PEEK options.
An interesting feature of the Pro-Chemie 60 is that the seals are completely independent from the shaft rotation, to protect it from radial wear and ensure long durability maintaining its sealing performance during the valve’s life, with no O-ring needed.
