Steam Isolation Valves Bellows Sealed Globe Valves

Steam isolation valves for your main steam lines are the key to cost effective and efficient maintenance, the installation of poor quality valves can only hinder your steam system now and in the future. We offer a number of solutions but the most efficient from our perspective is the Bellows sealed globe or stop valve depending on the terminology you’re used to. For lower pressure steam systems we offer a couple of alternatives, the ART 2231 bellows sealed steam isolation valves from Genebre and the BE8H-16 bellows sealed isolation valves from TLV. Both of these Bellows sealed stop valves are available either from stock or on short delivery times and can also be offered as part of a double block and bleed assembly with the incorporation of a flanged stainless steel steam rated ball valve, please contact our sales team to discuss your requirements. For higher pressure steam systems we can offer the TLV BE8H-25 and BE8H-40 in SG iron PN25 and cast steel PN40 flanged steam isolation valves.

Steam Isolation Valves threaded alternatives

We have alternative steam isolation valves threaded BSP which include the ART 350 bronze globe valve from Albion Valves and the TLV BE3L bellows sealed stop valve in forged steel, these versatile products offer the right solutions depending on the pressure requirements on your process steam system. The ART 350 bronze globe valve is suitable for low pressure steam and condense and is widely used when we supply dirt pocket steam trap sets for many of our existing customers although more often than not we avoid where possible supplying bronze globe valves as main steam isolation valves. For main steam isolation valves we usually offer a bellows sealed stop valve whether flanged or threaded, which brings us nicely on to the BE3L bellows sealed steam isolation valve from TLV. This particular valve offers all the advantages of the previously discussed bellows sealed steam isolation valves in a BSP threaded version, a forged steel valve for process steam, hot water and heat transfer fluids. The BE3L bellows sealed globe valve is maintenance free with a bellows sealed stem, stellite hardened surfaces on the plug and valve seat ensure excellent sealing properties and the durable stainless steel bellows is tested to withstand 10,000 cycles.
