Flowserve Corporation, a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, has announced the release of the Worcester® 51/52 Series Reduced Port Flanged Ball Valves.
These quarter-turn, floating ball valves have been reengineered for global availability by standardising design, materials, construction and product certifications. Target applications for the valves include controlling the flow of liquids or gases in the following industries: chemical processing, petrochemicals, energy, defence, food and beverage, industrial gases, pharmaceuticals and water.
The bubble-tight shutoff design and robust, live-loading packing in these valves minimise fugitive emissions, enhance safety, and maximise regulatory and standards compliance. Featuring a redesigned end plug, the valves ensure positive retention and greatly reduce blowout risk.
“These products offer superior reliability and exceptional leakage resistance due to improved live-loaded stem sealing,” said Daniel Dillon, Global Product Leader, Flowserve. “They are certified to the market’s latest fire-safe, fugitive emissions standards.”
In addition to improving safety for workers, process fluids and equipment, customers will benefit from lower total cost of ownership thanks to the interchangeability of widely available parts. Flowserve’s technical services are also available through the company’s global network of Quick Response Centers.
