Starline has a special line of Metal seated ball valves for abrasive and high temperature applications as well as a full range of Cryogenic valves.
TRUNNION MOUNTED Firesafe BALL VALVES
The Starline ULTRASTAR range are trunnion mounted design.
- Size Range :
- From ½” to 24″ (15NB to 600NB)
- Pressure Ratings :
- 150 – 2500 lbs and API 2000 to 10,000 psi
Starline also manufacture trunnion mounted ball valves for critical applications, such as low temperature (down to -196°C), abrasive service and very high temperature (up to +700°C) applications. All welded body type is also available for buried service &sub sea applications. Starline also manufacture floating and trunnion twin ball double block ball valves.
Starline trunnion mounted ball valves use F51 Duplex for ball and stem in class 200NB (8”) 600 class and above, as well as 900/1500 class 150NB (6”) and above. Others use 316 or worse CF8M even in much larger sizes. F51 is stronger than 316 and is required to handle extra torque, especially if particulates become entrapped in the seat area or if the ball is left in one position for a long period of time, the high quality Italian made Rotork Gear boxes will still open the valve without risking damage to the stem and without the need to grease the seats (which can then attract more debris to the seat, risking seal damage). With the trend towards hard PEEK seat inserts due to PEEK’s hard wearing (and high temperature) capabilities, the torque of the valve is substantially increased. However, the other advantage of F51 is it is 50% harder than 316 and is therefore more scratch resistant. Where you would throw away another valve, Starline valves are built for life. The same applies to F6 (410 series) stainless ball and stem. Like F51 it is 50% harder than 316 and much stronger.
Since a ball (especially in higher 600 to 1500 class) is highly polished there is no corrosion disadvantage compared to 316 in the service types encountered by an LF2 or A105 valve. F6 is also lower in cost and is increasingly being specified in lieu of 316, provided it is from a reputable brand forging manufacturer and is not substituted by an equivalent casting. Partnering F51 or F6 with PEEK provides a strong hardwearing valve. Also with Starline, if you order stainless trim, the lower trunnion is also full stainless. Other manufacturers rarely do this as smaller sizes up to 250NB (10”) (depending on the class) have an external lower flange which is integral with the lower trunnion so supplying the entire assembly in full stainless steel would be cost prohibitive.
