Severe Service Valves

Valves operating at high temperatures and pressures are classified as severe service valves. Applications that have entrained solids in the fluid also require severe service valves.  Standard valves in these applications have a very short lifetime.

Selection of Severe Service Valves

Severe service valves are highly engineered to withstand the conditions of challenging applications.

Valve types include:

  • Power Plant Valves
    • Metal-Seated Ball Valves: Metal-to-metal seals between the seats and ball allow these valves to perform with abrasives, corrosives and high-pressure fluids.
    • Steam Conditioning: Control steam temperature and pressure with a single unit.
    • Process Bypass: Pressure bypass valves divert a portion of the flow from the main line to adjust the pressure in a system.
    • Heater Bypass: With a heater bypass valve, flow can be redirected away from heaters to reduce corrosion and keep fluid cool.
    • Stop-Check: These valves combine the designs of a lift check valve and a globe valve. The globe valve can regulate flow, and the stem head prevents reverse flow.
  • Slurry and solids applications
    • Diaphragm: A diaphragm or membrane valve has an elastomeric diaphragm that rests on a seat when it’s closed. The flexible membrane can obstruct flow and adjust the fluid flow rate by moving vertically.
