Omal has launched its latest new product: the Pro-Chemie 60 – a stainless steel flanged ball valve series designed for the chemical industry. This valve can achieve 60,000 cycles with no fugitive emissions.
The Pro-Chemie 60 comes as either a manual or an automated option (using OMAL scotch-yoke actuators) and is also available with SIL3 / ATEX certificates. It is available from DN15 – DN150 in short (F4 Face To Face) or long pattern (F1 Face to Face) in pressure ranging PN16-40 (EN 1092-1) with double acting or spring return.
The new stainless steel ball valve has, as standard, an antistatic device (EN 12662-2) and are firesafe certified (ISO10497 / API607). All components are stainless steel. It is available with soft seats in PTFE + glass as standard with other options available on request such as TFM1600, PTFE + graphite or PEEK.
An important feature of the Pro-Chemie 60 is that the seals are completely independent from the shaft rotation, to protect it from radial wear and ensure long durability maintaining its sealing performance during the valve’s life. Due to its clever construction, upper cover, almost non-existent radial friction and low stress on the lower stem, there is no need for an O-Ring.
