Flowserve Corporation has announced the release of the Worcester 51/52 Series Reduced Port Flanged Ball Valves.
These quarter-turn, floating ball valves have been re-engineered for global availability by standardizing design, materials, construction, and product certifications. Target applications for the valves include controlling the flow of liquids or gases in the following industries: chemical processing, petrochemicals, energy, defense, food and beverage, industrial gases, pharmaceuticals, and water.
The bubble-tight shutoff design and robust, live-loading packing in these valves minimize fugitive emissions, enhance safety, and maximize regulatory and standards compliance. Featuring a redesigned end plug, the valves ensure positive retention and greatly reduce blowout risk.
In addition to improving safety for workers, process fluids, and equipment, customers will benefit from a lower total cost of ownership thanks to the interchangeability of widely available parts. Flowserve’s technical services are also available through the company’s global network of Quick Response Centers.
