CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions: XOMOX XLB Lined Ball Valve

crane chempharma xomox xlb lined ball valveCRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions XOMOX® has started shipping its new XLB Lined Ball Valve. The new design is available in 1/2 to 6 inch (15 -150 mm) sizes (as per ASME, EN, and JIS). The entire valve is sized to have little or no extension beyond the flange diameter, thus allowing the valve to be used in parallel piping systems easily without having to increase the dimensions of the system. It also features a smooth, painted surface that allows for effective wash down, limiting the potential for external corrosion.

The patented design of this new global lined ball valve (GLBV) offers multiple advantages, including:

  1. An innovative stem sealing system that provides safety and long term fugitive emission control under extreme conditions
  2. Dynamic body joint design that allows the valve to retain pressure boundary during thermal cycles
  3. Lower torque which translates into reduced actuation costs and space saving.
