ITT Engineered Valves has launched the Cam-Tite Ball Valve GV Series – an innovative valve solution designed as a direct dimensional and upgraded replacement for severe service applications.
The GV Series utilises advanced sealing technology to isolate and contain highly hazardous liquids and gases to protect the safety of operators and prevent fugitive emissions.
The GV Series offers an easy-to-operate and easy-to-maintain valve solution for processing ammonia, hydrofluoric acid, chlorine, ethylene oxide, phosgene, radiated media, oxygen, steam, and numerous other applications, and is available in all the same pressure classes and valve materials as the brand’s current Cam-Tite portfolio.
In addition to providing superior valve solutions, as verified through third-party safety and performance testing, the new product line offers global customers many benefits.
While most globe valve designs feature stem seals that are reliable for up to 10,000 cycles, the GV Series maintained zero detectable leakages for up to 100,000 cycles in tests for fugitive emissions.
The GV Series flow design offers three times higher flow capacity than the average globe valve, thereby significantly improving process throughput and reducing common bottlenecks.
“When managing harsh applications, a proven, effective valve is critical to avoid costly and dangerous disruptions. That’s why our GV Series utilises advanced technology that not only complies with industry performance standards, but exceeds them,” said Nang Chau, ITT Engineered Valves global product manager. “Enhancements made to the GV Series seal and flow designs outperform average globe valves in preventing emissions of harsh chemicals, highlighting our continued commitment to protecting the safety of machine operators and the environment.”
