Ask the Valve Expert: Valve for high-temperature application

March 29, 2013


I am looking for a ball valve for a high temperature fine solids pilot plant operation (~ 1" - 2" valve) that can withstand 550 C temperatures and abrasive solids. Any thoughts on a valve that can withstand this extreme service?   

Bob Donnelly:

We recommend our Flo-Tite HPF TriPro valve with a scrapper seat design for abrasive solids. These valves come with Super TEK III seats and 50/50 seats to handle the temperature. If need be we can also provide a metal seated valve with whatever ends you prefer.
