The Series 7100 ball valves feature a one piece cast body with a threaded insert. This design minimizes the number of leak paths while providing the maximum structural strength. The body design is built to the ASME/ANSI B16.34 with materials meeting NACE MR0175 and with flanges designed to ASME B16.5 Class 150 and 300. Optional API 607 4th Edition Fire Safe Design available.
The mounting plate is designed to the ISO 5211 standard for the direct mounting of actuators, most gear operators and accessories.
The stem is designed with an anti-static ball device that maintains constant metal contact with body and ball/stem assembly. This constant contact illuminates the possibility of static spark, if the body and pipe are properly grounded.
The seats can be serviced in the field and are replaceable. When servicing the seats, a seat rebuild kit and a end cap removal tool will be necessary.
The packing offers proper alignment for the stem in the valve body and reduces the torque of the valve. The V-cup packing design offers great sealing properties with the stem and body. Different materials are offered for the packing rings.
The Series 7100 ball valves are qualified for bi-directional use in ANSI Class 150 and 300 service.
