CAST STEEL VALVES

(GATE, GLOBE & CHECK)

REFERENCE STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS


PERFORMANCE FOR ANY APPLICATION

In fluid process systems, it is valves which are the controlling elements. They are responsible for stopping and starting flow, throttling or regulating flow, prevention of backflow and for regulating pressure.

KVC (UK) Ltd valves are used in a wide variety of applications the following descriptions will provide a simple guide in the selection of these types of valves.

GATE VALVES

Gate Valves serve as efficient stop valves with flow in both directions. They are used where a minimum pressure drop is important. Gate valves should not be used for Throttling since partially open gate valves display flow characteristics which will not help maintain accurate and consitent flow control. Partially open gate valves may also be damaged by the high velocity across the valve seats. They function best as ON/OFF valves either in the fully open or fully closed position.

GLOBE VALVES

Globe valves are suited for service where Throttling is required. Globe valve flow characteristics allow accurate and repeatable flow control. Caution should be taken to avoid very close throttling when the pressure drop exceeds around 20%. This close throttling can lead to excessive noise or vibration and can result in damage to the valves and other piping system components. If these conditions are expected please contact KVC (UK) Ltd for advice.

SWING CHECK VALVES

Swing Check Valves prevent backflow through pipelines. The valves can be installed in horizontal or vertical, upward flow, piping. They can serve to offer resistance to flow and are best suited to low velocity service condiditons.


MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION (SERVICE CONDITIONS)

(1) Upon prolonged exposure to temperatures above 800°F (426°C) 1 the carbide phase of carbon steel may be converted to graphite. Permissible, but not recommended for prolonged use above 800°F (426°C)

(2) Product used within the jurisdiction of Section 1 Power boilers of the ASME boiler and pressure vessel code is subject to the same temperature limitations as specificed in that document.

(3) Product used within the jurisdiction of Power piping, ASME Code for Pressure piping B31.3, is subject to the same maximum temperature limitations placed upon the material in that document.


GATE VALVES

Gate Valves are the most commonly used shut-off valve in the industry today.

CAST STEEL GATE VALVES


KVC (UK) LTD Gate valves are manufactured to API Std.600 and tested to API Std.598

Gate Valves are the most commonly used shut-off valve in the industry today. They are used where minimum pressure drop and bi-directional on-off service is required. Gate valves are not designed for throttling service. Prolonged use in the partially open position may lead to premature wear and damage to the seating surfaces.

Our standard offering has a rising stem with an outside screw and yoke.

BODY AND BONNET

  • Back-Seat Bushing
  • Gland can be Re-packed in-situ
  • Wedge Clear of Flow in Full Open Position
  • Low Pressure Drop across valve
BOY-BONNET JOINT / GASKET
Range of materials to suit Pressure Classes

WEDGE
Flexible wedge as standard (Solid Wedge available on request)
Reduces the likelihood of the wedge sticking Fully guided wedges

 

WELDED-IN SEAT RING
Seat Ring is seal welded to eliminate potential leak paths. (Renewable seat rings can be supplied on request.)

STEM

  • One piece stem, forged tee-head connection
  • Rolled or cut ACME threads subject to valve size
  • Polished on the packing contact area
  • Ensures long life & optimal tightness
  • Engineered stem break-point above packing area
  • Ensures sealing integrity to atmosphere.
GLAND
The Gland Flange & Packing Gland are manufactured in two separate pieces Adjustable gland in service Optional live loaded gland can be specified Backseated design allowing the gland packing to be replaced in situ.

STUFFING BOX
  • Packing contains corrosion inhibitor to avoid stem pitting.
  • Deep stuffing box design ensures long packing life.

TESTING
Standard Testing is in accordance with API 598. Customer specific testing by agreement.



GLOBE VALVES

Globe Valves are used where throttling and shut off are required. Close throttling can lead to altered velocities, this leads to excessive noise and vibration which can damage the valve or piping system.

CAST STEEL GATE VALVES

KVC (UK) LTD Globe valves are manufactured to BS 1873, B16.34 and tested to API Std.598
Globe Valves are used where throttling and shut off are required. They can also be used for on-off service, but due to high pressure drop, this is generally confined to applications where the valve is normally closed and pressure drop is not important when the valve is open. Close throttling can lead to altered velocities, this leads to excessive noise and vibration which can damage the valve or piping system.

BODY AND BONNET

  • Back-Seat Bushing
  • Gland can be Re-packed in-situ
  • Spherical body with large radius, allows stress and turbulence to be minimised

SWING CHECK VALVES

Swing Check valves are automatically actuated. They are used to prevent flow reversal in piping systems.

CAST STEEL SWING CHECK VALVES

KVC (UK) LTD Swing Check valves are manufactured to BS 1868, B16.34, and tested to API std.598
Swing Check valves are automatically actuated. They are used to prevent flow reversal in piping systems. They are suitable for service in the horizontal and the vertical orientation (flow up through valve). Swing check valves have low pressure drop characteristics and are best suited for moderate velocity applications. There is no tendency for the seating surfaces of swing check valves to gall or score, this is due to the fact that the disc meets the flat seat squarely and there is no rubbing upon contact.

BODY

  • Spherical body with large radius, allows stress and turbulence to be minimized
  • Strong construction assures safety, even above pressure and temperature limits.

BOY-BONNET JOINT / GASKET
Range of materials to suit Pressure Classes

DISC
Designed to close on its own weight to stop backflow.
