Crane ChemPharma launches three new products for fluid handling applications
Crane ChemPharma & Energy, a provider of highly-engineered solutions for fluid handling applications worldwide, recently launched three new products during the 2014 Valve World Conference & Expo in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Xomox XLC fully-lined ball check valves offer economical solutions for the vast majority of chemical applications with a unique flexible seat that enables Class A and API-598 sealing. Critical equipment is protected from cross contamination and the effects of backflow, even in the horizontal position where the XLC's angled ribs guide the ball tightly into the seat. With metal-to-metal contact at the joint seal and wide conical plastic connection, the risk of dangerous external leaks is reduced.
Engineered to address the inherent dangers of volatile chemical applications, the Xomox FK adheres to the industry's most stringent standards and combats the harmful effects of temperature and pressure fluctuation. Three independent stem seals offer superior fugitive emissions control, and are certified to EPA Method-21, ISO-15848 and TA-Luft according to VDI 2440. Self-relieving seats relieve excess pressure to protect the integrity of the valve while maintaining bi-directional operation. The patented SX ball stem design provides maximum stem torque capability and built-in side load resistance, which extends valve life under severe conditions including thermal cycling.
Designed to exceed industry fugitive emissions standards with outputs as low as 20ppm, new Pacific CSV cast steel gate, globe and check valves offer optimum performance to the oil and gas, power and refining industries worldwide.
The CSV gate valve's fully-guided wedge ensures smooth operation in both horizontal and vertical orientations to deliver improved resistance to sticking, while the globe valve features a uniquely-designed line contact between disc and seat for lower seating torque and faster set up. The CSV swing check disc fastener is restrained by the bonnet to eliminate the risk of a displaced disc and prevent damage to downstream equipment.
