The basic features of a globe valve Bolted Bonnet;
Outside Screw and Yoke; Rising stems; Metallic seating surfaces
and Bonnet Connection
The body and bonnet of Class150 - Class900 globe valves are usually with studs and nuts. And the body and bonnet of Class 1500 - Class 2500 globe valves are usually of pressure seal design.
Gasket of Cover Flange
Stainless steel + flexible graphite wounded gasket is used for Class 300 and 600 globe valves, and ring joint gasket is also optional for Class 600. Ring joint gasket is used for Class 900 globe valve. Pressurized seal design is used for Class 1500 - Class 2500 globe valve.
Hand wheel, impact hand wheel & gear box is usually used for globe valve actuation. Chain wheel and electric actuator can be also used for globe valve actuation if being requested by the customers.
Moulded flexible graphite is used for packing material. PTFE or combined packing material can be also used if being requested by the customer. The internal surface of the stuffing box, of which area is contacted with the packing, is of excellent finish (Ra 3.2µm). The stem surface, contacting with the packing, should be rolled and pressed after being precisely machined, so as to reach to the high finish and compactness (Ra 0.8µm) and ensure the reliable tightness of the stem area.
Belleville Spring Loaded Packing Impacting System If being requested by the customer, the Belleville spring loaded packing impacting can be adopted for enhancing the durability and reliability of the packing seal.
Back Seating Design
All our globe valves have the back seat design. In most cases, the carbon steel globe valve is fitted with a renewable back seat. For stainless steel globe valve, the back seat is machined directly in the bonnet or is machined after welding. When the globe valve is at fully open position, the sealing of the back seat can be very reliable. However, as per the requirement of API, it is not advisable to add or change packing by the mean of back seating when the valve is pressure containing.
For carbon steel globe valve, the seat is usually forged steel. The sealing surface of the seat is spray welded with hard alloy specified by the customer. Renewable threaded seat is used for NPS ≤ 10 globe valve and welded on seat can be also optional if being requested by the customer. Welded on seat is used for NPS ≥ 12 carbon steel globe valves. For stainless steel globe valve, integral seat is usually adopted, or to weld hard alloy directly integrally. Threaded or welded on seat is also optional for stainless steel globe valve if being requested by the customer.
The stem is of integral forged design. The minimum diameter of the stem shall be in acc. with the requirements of the applicable standard.
Usually, the stem nut is copper alloy. For large sized globe valve, rolling bearing is fitted at the two sides of stem nut in order to minimize the open and close torque of the globe valve.
Special Globe Valve
Besides the common globe valves, we also produce cryogenic globe valve，bellow sealed globe valve, Jacketed globe valve, etc.
