This newly patented body-to-bonnet metal-to-metal seal valve is announced to increase the pressure range of the model without compromising the flow. It also helps maintain bonnet threads integrity by segregating them from the process media.
The valve’s body seal incorporates a dovetail undercut below the seal. This improves metal-to-metal contact forces as pressure increases, as well as a dual outlet orifice to maximize fluid flow. Design features increase valve limits to 10,000 psi, declared “significantly higher than similar-sized miniature needle valves.”
The newly patented valve design is incorporated into its manufacturer’s hard seat mini valves, bleed valves, two-valve static pressure manifolds including block and bleed designs, three-valve differential pressure mini valves, and five-valve natural gas manifolds.
