Safety In High-Pressure Applications

Safety In High-Pressure Applications
21 Sep 2022  |
Whether in the process industry, machine building, or automation, the new model HPBV ball valve from WIKA, for high-pressure applications up to 20,000 psi (1,379 bar), is designed for a wide variety of applications.

The model HPBV is available with various bores and enables bidirectional flow. Its robust design, with floating ball, blow-out proof valve spindle, and high-quality PTFE sealing packing, offers maximum safety and long service life for the instrument. A valve seat made of PEEK withstands chemicals, heat, and wear.

Two connection types are available for the new valve: NPT and cone/thread (for nominal pressure of 20,000 psi/1,379 bar). Operation is smooth, even under high loads – the ball valve can be closed and opened with just a quarter turn. In addition to the standard version, there is an optional oil- and grease-free variant for oxygen applications in accordance with ASTM G93 Level C.

For the model HPBV, WIKA offers an application-specific assembly with a high-pressure gauge. Such an instrument hook-up is delivered ready to install and leak tested.
