Swagelok — a leading solutions provider of fluid system products, assemblies and related services — has announced the release of the full-bore ball valve.
The new, bidirectional flow-capable Swagelok GB series valve is engineered to provide high flow rates at a working pressure of 6,000 psig (413 bar) while simplifying installation, minimising rework requirements and delivering the reliable shut-off performance needed to keep workers safe and systems operating efficiently in a variety of demanding applications.
The Swagelok GB series ball valve can be widely deployed as a general-purpose ball valve. Examples of ideal applications for the valve include hydraulic, injection and fire suppression systems
in the oil and gas industry.
When combined with Swagelok’s broad range of tube fittings, tubing and instrument valves, the new ball valve enables customers to build a complete 6,000 psig-rated fluid system with tubing diameters up to one inch using all Swagelok components.
For engineering, procurement and construction companies and fluid system package vendors, the Swagelok GB series ball valve provides value by reducing the time and cost required to install and verify the performance of components installed in high-flow industrial applications.
