Schlumberger has released the GROVE IST integrated seat technology ball valve. New ball valve technology features a patented seat-on-ball design that significantly improves performance over conventional metal-seated ball valves in addition to offering considerable size and weight benefits.
Conventional ball valves tend to become larger in size and weight as oil and gas companies explore harsher environments. The GROVE IST ball valve overcomes these conditions with its game changing seat design that provides advanced sealing performance and increased valve life span while minimizing size and weight, enabling customers to reduce total cost of ownership.
