Process valve and actuator specialist Bonomi has introduced a V-notch called ‘Vball’ to its ball valve range.
According to the company, the new addition will enable users to achieve greater stability and accuracy in terms of flow control.
A selection of Bonomi’s valves are available with a Vball, including the Inox-val, Radiamont, Wafer, Split-Body and Wafer Split.
The Vball is available from ½” in all new sizes, and can be used with liquids and gases. This allows it to have a flow control range up to 500:1.
In its announcement, Bonomi states that each valve’s design has been validated using FEA (finite element analysis) Software, CFD (computational fluid dynamics) software and flow loop testing. CV and KV curves are also available.
Using specialist VALPSIZE configuration software, valves can be sized (ISA 75.02, IEC 60534-2-1) checking fluid velocity, valve openings, noise and other critical issues. Valpres control valves are available with a manual calibrated lever with opening and flow direction indication and can be configured with Valbia pneumatic or electric actuators to fit individual users’ flow control needs.
The Vball range has undergone testing at Bonomi’s Rubinetterie Bresciane laboratory and other third party test facilities. Endurance testing has been conducted beyond CV/KW, noise and valve parameter measurement (FL, Xt). The valves are offered with graphite filled PTFE seats.
