Application

Cryogenic ball valve is isolating valve designed to fully open or close the service fluid flow. It is not designed to be used for throttling or regulating purposes. For temperatures from −196 °C to +70 °C.

For liquids and gases of temperature lower than −60 °C, the ball of valve is equipped with upstream vent hole which ensures balancing of overpressure from valve cavity into upstream pipeline. In such case the valve is unidirectional and is equipped with label showing the fluid flow on the body.

Suitable for both corrosive and non-corrosive liquids and gases without mechanical impurities.

Approved for fluids in groups 1 (hazardous) and 2 according to 2014/68/EU.
