Val-Matic’s newly acquired QuadroSphere® Ball Valve line is made for applications where typical trunnion ball valves experience problems. The unique contoured ball features four recessed surfaces creating additional flow paths allowing the flow and particulates to move freely above, below and around the sides of the ball when moving from closed to open position. Seat ring contact to the ball has minimal contact area, which reduces wear and operating torques, due to less friction.

Victaulic introduces the Series 725 Diverter Valve, the industry’s first grooved-end valve designed specifically for paste backfill lines. The valve improves the efficiency of backfill operations while providing durable, reliable service.
The Series 725 Diverter Valve eliminates the need to reposition fill lines, reducing handling and resulting in more efficient operations. Providing 180-degree service, the valve reduces the need for crews to manually redeploy backfill piping systems to other areas of the mine, saving time.
The Series 725 is available in a 6-inch (150 millimeter) size and withstands pressures of up to 1,000 psi (6,900 kPa). Designed with a standard ISO 5211 mounting flange, the valve can be provided with a gear operator or electric actuator for remote actuation.

UniTorq Actuators & Controls is pleased to announce the introduction of the New UT-ZM Declutchable Gear Override. Available in torque outputs ranging from 1,770 to 61,995 in lbs., the UT-ZM provides a safe, cost-effective solution for manual control of the valve whenever air supply or power to a pneumatic actuator is lost.
The UT-ZM is available with options that make it one of the safest to operate overrides on the market. The Isolation Safety Option provides internal porting that automatically blocks and releases air from the actuator, making operation of the gear safer and easier. The internal porting also eliminates the need to assemble extra tubing, tees, valves and fittings, making installation easier and safer.
All overrides feature a corrosion resistant housing that conforms to IP67 protection standards, sturdy die cast aluminum hand wheels, stainless steel declutch bars, and spring-loaded pins that help to lock the unit into position. For additional safety, a Padlock kit can be added to prevent unintended operation.

Colfax Fluid Handling introduced an Active Valve Control option to its Smart Technology CM-1000 Series intelligent sea water cooling system controller. The CM-1000 Series with optional Active Valve Control may be applied to both new-build and retrofit operations. The CM-1000 Series is designed to enhance shipboard sea water cooling system pumping efficiency while lowering operating and maintenance costs and maximizing uptime for greener, sustainable operation. The CM-1000 Series with Active Valve Control offers potential energy savings of up to 85 percent, thus reducing a vessel’s carbon footprint. It also reduces maintenance by up to 50 percent and provides safer operation, return-on-investment and long term savings for total ownership. The CM-1000 Series with Active Valve Control utilizes sensors to monitor real-time operating conditions such as temperatures in the freshwater cooling loop, as well as the pumps’ suction and discharge pressure. The sensor signals enable the CM-1000 Series controller to regulate the flow of sea water to the coolers according to varying heat loads from the main engine and generators.

Flowserve Corporation announced the introduction of two new products, the Valtek GS globe control valve and Logix® 420 digital positioner. These products provide a fully integrated valve package for general service continuous process control throughout the plant.
The Valtek GS is an environmentally-friendly, control valve that complies with the latest standards for controlling fugitive emissions requirements (ISO 15848). The GS is based upon simple, yet proven Valtek design philosophies of building an instrumented control valve package by providing automated calibration and some of the highest flow rates in a general service globe valve package – over 55 Cv in a 2-inch valve and nearly 150 Cv in the 3-inch model.

The portfolio of Neles® ceramic E-series control valves, recognized for being extremely erosion resistant, has now been expanded to NPS 08" (DN 200) in pressure Class 300 (PN40).
The E-series valve is the most erosion resistant control valve available. It works as an ideal solution in many energy and hydrocarbon processes, as well as in mining and minerals processing processes, where metallic materials and coatings fail due to high erosion. Catalyst handling can be a challenging application. With the E-series control valve, plant runtime can be extended and life-cycle costs minimized.
Pulp mills with capacities of up to 1.5 million tons have been able to utilize this new valve size as part of their latest process investments to meet the demand for severe control applications and to reach larger dimensions.
The Neles ceramic control valve series E2/E6 uses a field-proven design with solid ceramic trim components to cover the whole wetted flow passage.

The Camseal zero leakage, metal seated forged ball valve from Conval features a cartridge-style, top entry design that saves significant time and money on installation, maintenance, replacement and downtime. With top entry access, maintenance and replacement of the cartridge internals are very convenient, with no effect on existing piping and welds.
The Camseal body/bonnet joint is not subject to pipeline stresses. There is no in-line body bolting to loosen or fatigue, so the body remains leak-free. All valves are capable of meeting zero bubbles for four minutes at 50 psi and 1,000 psi nitrogen. Modular internals isolate critical seal surfaces from thermal effects. Conval's exclusive Integral Gland Wrench concentrically loads the stem packing without tools, eliminating stem leaks and extending packing life. Reliable, accurate ball alignment is achieved due to the robust engagement between the one-piece stem and the ball. Superior bearing support of the blowout-proof stem ensures proper axial alignment. The custom-engineered flame spray chrome carbide coating has superior bond strength and coating density to provide long-life, leak-free performance even in high temperature and high pressure drop applications. In-line servicing can be accomplished in 30 minutes, restoring zero leakage performance in the event of process application abuse.
Camseal ball valves are available in ½" through 4" top entry sizes, with socket weld, butt weld, FNPT and a variety of other ends. Pressure ratings range from ASME Class 900 to 4500. Standard materials include carbon steel SA-105, stainless steel SA-182-F316/F316L, Alloy SA-182-F22 CI.3, SA-182-F91. Standard accessories include ISO-5211 integral mounting pad and electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic actuators. All valves are manufactured under a sophisticated Quality Management System.

Emerson Process Management has released the new Fisher Type N863 Snappy Joe Emergency Shutoff Railcar Valve with up to twice the flow rate of the previous N562, offering a significant reduction in propane railcar loading/unloading time.
The Fisher railcar valve was originally developed more than 30 years ago and is the first and only Emergency Shutoff Valve (ESV) specifically designed for railcars in the propane industry. It can be used with most compressed gases such as propane, anhydrous ammonia, natural gas liquids, aerosols, etc.
The new N863 design greatly increases flow capacity, up to 413 GPM versus 200 GPM for the N562, depending on system piping and flow capabilities. The N863 valve seals are available in Nitrile, Neoprene, Kalrez™ (FFKM), Teflon™ (PTFE), Viton™ (FKM) and EPDM to provide broad application versatility. UL Listing for the N863 is expected in 2014.

The new compact Group 75 rotary actuator incorporates a synchronous, permanent-magnet motor and an efficient spur gear drive train insuring years of reliable service, extremely low power requirements, and excellent positioning performance. Additionally, the motor will never overheat and cannot burn-out.
The new design is not only smaller and lighter, but it also incorporates technologies that make an optional high temperature (250˚F / 120˚C) version possible, exceeding Beck’s standard 185˚F / 85˚C rating. These features make it easy to install the Group 75 in space-restricted and difficult service environments, and it is particularly well-suited for all types of rotary valve applications.
