What is a Swagelok valve?
Ball valves can be used in a variety of applications ranging from general purpose to alternative fuel service to control system flow. Available as on-off, switching, or crossover, Swagelok ball valves can be manufactured or configured to a wide range of specifications.
What is the purpose of bleed valve?
Bleed valves are manually operated and used specifically for bleeding liquids or gases out of an instrument or system. These valves also give you slight control of the outflow direction via the vent tube.
What is double block and bleed valves?
Double block and bleed (DBB) is the practice of shutting in a section of pipe on both sides of the valve rather than just one. It means you close the ball valves to block both the upstream and downstream sides of your working area, and then bleed any pressure that remains in the piping and valve.
What is the purpose of a block valve?
Block valves permit fluids to pass through with minimum flow restriction and pressure loss when fully open and yet provide a tight seal when fully closed. On/off control is most commonly accomplished with gate valves.
What is the difference between ball valve and needle valve?
Ball valves are designed for on-off operation. Avoid extended periods of throttled operation. Needle valves offer flexible flow control options with designs allowing on-off, throttling, and fine metering operation depending on your needs.
What is the difference between ball valve and plug valve?
A ball valve has a hollow center and a spherical disc. A conical or cylindrical disc with drilled openings runs through a plug valve. In a ball valve, the disc or ball is smaller than the disc or plug in a plug valve. A plug valve can give a tighter shut-off than a ball valve because of this.
What is double block and bleed valve?
What is block and bleed arrangement?
A Block and bleed manifold is a hydraulic manifold that combines one or more block/isolate valves, usually ball valves, and one or more bleed/vent valves, usually ball or needle valves, into one component for interface with other components (pressure measurement transmitters, gauges, switches, etc.)
What is bleed valve?
A bleed valve is a valve for removing liquid from a tank or tube, or for removing gas from a liquid. The calipers of hydraulic brakes are fitted with bleed valves to allow trapped air to be removed. The manual bleed valve allows the manual release of air pressure from the tire.
What is the purpose of a bleeding valve?
How do you identify different types of valves?
Isolation Valves: Ball, butterfly, diaphragm, gate, pinch, piston, and plug valves. Regulation Valves: Ball, butterfly, diaphragm, globe, needle, pinch, and plug valves. Safety Relief Valves: Pressure release and vacuum relief valves. Non-Return Valves: Swing check and lift check valves.
Which valve has highest pressure drop?
the globe valve
Compared with a gate valve or ball valve, the globe valve has considerably higher pressure loss in the fully open position. This is because the flow of fluid changes direction as it goes through the valve. The L/D ratio for this type of valve is approximately 340. Globe valves are manufactured in sizes up to NPS 16.
Is Gate valve better than ball valve?
Ball valves are more effective at forming a tight seal and have more reliability and longevity than gate valves, but tend to be more expensive. They are often used for shutoff and control applications. Because ball valves can open and close immediately, they are more likely than gate valves to cause water hammer.
What is two valve category?
There are 2 distinct types of linear valves: rising stem (multi-turn) and axial. While both valve types rely on the linear motion of the flow obstructer, they are very different in construction and operation.
What is a block valve?
Any type of valve that is used to close off flow, such as flow through a pipeline or out of a tank. Types of valves used in such service include gate valves, ball valves, and plug valves. Typically, a block valve can be locked in either the open or closed position to prevent tampering or vandalism.
What are the two types of valves?
Common functional designations and their common design types include: Isolation Valves: Ball, butterfly, diaphragm, gate, pinch, piston, and plug valves. Regulation Valves: Ball, butterfly, diaphragm, globe, needle, pinch, and plug valves.
What are the different types of Swagelok valves available?
Swagelok process interface valves and process monoflanges can be configured to suit a variety of special applications. In addition to double block and bleed assemblies, single block and bleed, and block combinations are available. Block and bleed globe valve module options are also available.
What are block and bleed valves?
Block and bleed valves provide a margin of safety for maintenance and repairs. They give you an isolatable access point, making it easier to calibrate a device on the line or add a fluid. For instance, the valves can make it easier to add glycol to a gauge, or add nitrogen to a system.
Why Swagelok process interface valves?
Swagelok process interface valves enable a smooth transition from the process piping system to instrumentation in a single configuration, providing fewer potential leak points, lower installed weight, and a smaller space envelope.
How do I select a Swagelok product?
Your local authorized Swagelok sales and service center may have additional options. The complete catalog contents must be reviewed to ensure that the system designer and user make a safe product selection. When selecting products, the total system design must be considered to ensure safe, trouble-free performance.
