15BV-Single Ferrule Compression Ball Valves

Introduction

Hikelok high-pressure ball valves have been designed to provide superior quality for maximum performance within a variety of valve styles, sizes, and process connections. Some of the more unique design innovations include an integral one-piece trunnion mounted style ball and stem that eliminates the shear failure common in two piece designs, re-torqueable seat glands that result in longer seat life, and a low friction stem seal that reduces actuation torque and enhances cycle life.The 15BV use Autoclave's SpeedBite connection type.

Features

  • Maximum working pressure up to 15,000 psig (1034 bar)

  • Fluorocarbon FKM O-rings for operation from 0°F to 400°F (-17.8°C to 204°C)

  • One-piece, trunnion mounted style, stem design eliminates shear failure and reduces the effects of side loading found in two piece designs

  • PEEK seats offer excellent resistance to chemicals, heat, and wear/abrasion

  • Full-port flow path minimizes pressure drop

  • 316 cold worked stainless steel construction

  • Wide selection of tube and pipe end connections available

Advantages

  • Re-torqueable seat glands for longer seat life

  • Low friction pressure assisted graphite filled Teflon stem seal increases cycle life and reduces operating torque. Quarter turn from open to close with positive stop

  • Stem sleeve and packing gland materials have been selected to achieve extended thread cycle life and reduced handle torque

  • Viton o-rings for operation from 0°F (-17.8°C) to 400°F(204°C)

  • 100% factory tested

More Options

  • Optional 3 way

  • Optional o-rings available for high-temperature applications

  • Optional wetted materials

  • Optional Electric and pneumatic actuator
