TRUNNION BALL VALVEDESCRIPTIONPRODUCT FEATURESThe trunnion ball valve is a form of quarter-turn valvewhich uses a hollow, perforated and fixed/supportedball to control flow through it.A trunnion mounted valve means that the ball is constrained by bearings and is only allowed to rotate, themajority of the hydraulic load is supported by the System constraints, resulting in low bearing pressure andno shaft fatigue. The line pressure drives the upstreamseat against the stationary ball so that the line pressureforces the upstream seat onto the ball causing it to seal.The mechanical anchoring of the ball absorbs the thrustfrom the line pressure, preventing excess friction between the ball and seats, so even at full rated working pressure operating torque remains low. This is particularlyadvantageous when the ball valve is actuated becauseit reduces the size of the actuator and hence the overallcosts of the valve actuation package.Advantages of trunnion ball design is the lower operating torque, ease of operation, minimized seat wear(Stem/ball isolation prevents side loading and wear ofdownstream seats improving performance and servicelife), superior sealing performance at both high and lowpressure (a separate spring mechanism and upstreamline pressure is used as the sealing against the stationaryball for low pressure and high pressure applications).The trunnion is available for all sizes and for all pressureclasses but they are not suitable for throttling purposes.PAGE SUBSECTION B INDEXSIDE ENTRYB-1 TRUNNIONBALL VALVESSIDE ENTRYB-2 TRUNNIONBALL VALVESSIDE ENTRYB-3 TRUNNIONBALL VALVESSIDE ENTRYB-4 TRUNNIONBALL VALVESStandard double block sealing performance.2.

CONFIDENCE IN STEEL FORGINGWHY FORGINGS?Forging offers uniformity of composition and structure. Forging results in metallurgicalrecrystalisation and grain refinement as a result of the thermal cycle and deformation process.This strengthens the resulting steel product particularly in terms of impact and shear strength.Forged steel is generally stronger and more reliable than castings and plate steel due to the factthat the grain flows of the steel are altered, conforming to the shape of the part.WHAT YOU GAIN WHEN YOU SELECT OUR FORGINGS Dimensional uniformity and close dimensional tolerances. The nature of forging excludes the occurence of porosity,shrinkage, cavities and cold pour issues. High Strength. The tight grain structure of forgings making it mechanically Tougher than alternatives.strong. Better response to heat treatment than alternatives. The tight grain structure offers great wear resistance. Will handle impact better than alternatives.IN-HOUSE FORGING PRODUCTIONThanks to constant search of efficient solutions the plant has the most modern forgingproduction built on basis of semi-automatic and continuous forging line.High quality of forging is provided by the modern production accessories of theplant and usage of software for modeling the process of forging.HIGHEST POSSIBLE MATERIAL QUALITYBFE uses only high-quality materials inspected & tested toInternational Standards and utilizes advanced manufacturingtechnology with special emphasis on safety, quality, andlong service life of our products, to ensure that our clientsreceive the “best in class” products available from us at acompetitive price and delivered on time.CHALLENGING MATERIALSFOR THE MOST CRITICALAPPLICATIONSForging material has increased strengthunder maximum rated operationpressure compared with cast.
