New sliding gate control valve type 8621, designed in accordance with ASME standards
With the new type 8621, Schubert & Salzer combines ASME standards for the first time with sliding gate technology. It is the first sliding gate control valve not to be built in wafer design, but instead on the basis of ASME B16.34, including a flange connection according to ASME B16.5. Sliding gate valves can now be selected with a standardized overall length according to ANSI ISA 75.08.01; plant operators can quickly and simply replace traditional globe valves by much more efficient valves with sliding gate technology.
In comparison with globe valves, users of sliding gate valves benefit from critical advantages, such as minimal consumption of energy due to small actuation forces and fast response due to small strokes. Other features are the controllability of high differential pressures with small actuators, low-noise, and cavitation-insensitive operation as well as high variable Kvs values.
The new sliding gate control valve type 8621 is the first Schubert & Salzer valve to be produced not only in Germany, but also in the USA at our location in Concord, North Carolina.>> More about type 8621
