Industrial sites perform numerous processes, but only one thing counts: efficient, reliable and safe operation
The term ‘industry’ covers an extremely wide variety of processes in connection with the extraction and transformation of resources and the manufacture of a wide range of goods of all kinds. KSB valves support companies through all phases of their industrial processes. They meet the relevant requirements thanks to an optimum combination of all relevant components such as body, seal, stem, obturator, actuator and positioner. They also vary in many respects – with regard to metal type, polymers, diameter, operating pressure, temperature, body types, connections, energy for actuation purposes, position control, communication protocol, specific instrumentation and accessories.
Some of these combinations have become industry standards, while many are specific to certain industries and others will be developed for future projects.
Centred-disc butterfly valve, sealed by elastomer liner, with lever or manual gearbox, pneumatic, electric or hydraulic actuator. Wafer-type body (T1), semi-lug body (T2), full-lug body (T4) or U-section body with flat faces (T5). Body types T2 and T4 are suitable for downstream dismantling and dead-end service with counterflange. Connections to EN, ASME, JIS.
Double-offset butterfly valve, with plastomer seat (also in fire-safe design), metal seat or elastomer seat (FKM [VITON R] or NBR [Nitrile]). Lever or manual gearbox, pneumatic, electric or hydraulic actuator. Body made of nodular cast iron, cast steel, stainless steel, aluminium bronze or duplex stainless steel (254 SMO). Wafer-type body (T1), full-lug body (T4), T4 suitable for downstream dismantling and dead-end service with counterflange. Connections to EN, ASME, JIS. Fire-safe design tested and certified to API 607.
NORI 40 ZXLBV/ZXSBV
Bellows-type globe valve to DIN/EN with flanged ends (ZXLBV), butt weld ends or socket weld ends (ZXSBV), tapered on/off disc or throttling plug, two-piece stem, integrated position indicator, seat/disc interface made of wear and corrosion resistant chrome steel or chrome nickel steel.
STAAL 40 AKD/AKDS
Gate valve to DIN/EN with flanged ends (AKD) or butt weld ends (AKDS), with bolted bonnet, body of forged or welded construction, non-rotating stem, split wedge with flexibly mounted discs for precise alignment with the body seats. Seat/disc interface made of wear and corrosion resistant 17 % chrome steel.
Bellows-type globe valve to DIN/EN with flanged ends, with on/off disc or throttling plug, standard position indicator with colour coding for identification of valve design, replaceable valve disc; bellows protected when valve is in fully open position; seat/disc interface made of wear and corrosion resistant chrome steel or chrome nickel steel.
Diaphragm valve with butt weld ends or clamps; straight-way, Y or T pattern, or as a multi-port valve; shut-off and sealing to atmosphere by completely enclosed diaphragm. No dead volumes, suitable for sterilisation, SIP/CIP-compliant design, position indicator. All moving parts are separated from the fluid by the diaphragm. Maintenance-free.
