Double Block and Bleed Valves from Besseges (VTF)

As the preference from industry for double block and bleed valves becomes ever more important, the need to consider how this is best achieved should be discussed. There are many options available for hot systems and chemical installations and the valve manufacturing industry seems to have come to the conclusion that their customers want a single valve to achieve this and these are being produced in great numbers in many materials. But is this the answer that will suit everyone’s requirements, in our opinion here at Besseges we think not, if you would like more information on our solutions to your double block and bleed valves requirements, please contact us or click the read more icon for more information.

Double Block and Bleed Valves for Process Steam

For process steam installations we can offer double block and bleed valves in threaded or flanged versions, the normal double block and bleed valves arrangement would be two off bellows sealed stop valves and one or two off high temperature ball valves to complete the arrangement. We can also offer pressure gauges with these valve arrangements which offer a visible indication of whether there is pressure within the valve arrangement. These arrangements that make up double block & bleed valves installations for process steam can also be supplied with steam rated hoses and a flow indicating sight glass to ensure safe opening of the bleed valves if steam is present in the valve arrangement. The advantage of this three or four valve arrangement over an integrated valve set up is if a single valve fails it can easily be replaced at minimal cost, if an integrated valve set up fails it has been replaced and at great cost. In the short term this is unlikely to happen depending on the quality of valve you buy but in the medium and long term when warranties have long past this could be a very painful issue. Please contact us to discuss the best solution for your business for double block and bleed valves and any other process steam requirement.
