The Garlock family of companies has reintroduced the Garlock butterfly valve line, a group of flow control products specifically built to handle a wide range of extreme, sterile and chemical transportation and storage conditions, with three new offerings within the Garlock butterfly valve line: the STERILE-SEAL, the SAFETY-SEAL and the MOBILE-SEAL.
GAR-SEAL butterfly valves provide critical shut-off duties and manage the flow of acidic, caustic, abrasive or toxic media that could severely damage or be too challenging for other valve systems. STERILE-SEAL butterfly valves are designed for applications where completely sterility is required, such as in the pharmaceutical and food & beverage production industries. The STERILE-SEAL is only available with a PTFE liner, and offers a unique external sterilization option: ‘dead’ areas of the valve, along with the disc, body liner and inner seals, can be thoroughly sterilized with steam and allow no possibility of contact with internal media. The SAFETY-SEAL is specifically designed to negate charge build up and dissipate static. Finally, the MOBILE-SEAL butterfly valve is intended for tanker vehicles, railway wagons, fluid storage silos and other containers where dangerous media are contained.
The Garlock butterfly valve line is offered with a wide range of accessories, including standard handles, locking handles, gear operators and air actuators.

AUMA has developed new actuation solutions for a range of specialized oil and gas applications, including an innovative approach for lift plug valves. These shut-off valves are widely adopted in high temperature, high pressure applications and for the conduction of media containing solids.
Within the lift plug valve, different movements have to be coordinated during operation from one end position to the other: the closing element must first be lifted from its seat, then rotated by 90° from CLOSE to OPEN or vice versa, and finally lowered back into the valve seat.

Characterized by simplicity of design, low energy usage and the innovative Wedgetorque® operator, Pacific Wedgeplug valves from Crane are specifically engineered to address the challenges in severe service applications. Now available in ½” to 36” sizes, the range has been expanded to increase the breadth of solutions for customers in the refining, petrochemical and power generation industries. The valve’s unique design offers users a number of benefits, including:
- Increased Return on Investment: When not actuating, Pacific Wedgeplug consumes no steam, resulting in industry-leading low steam usage and DCU operational savings of more than $150,000 per year.
- Easy TAR Servicing: With inline decoking and service, the valve body stays in the piping system to deliver a shorter TAR schedule and lower trade costs.
- Enhanced Safety: A single valve offers double block-and-bleed capability, reducing upstream and downstream concerns and enabling users to purge and gauge the valve body for safety permissives.
Pacific Wedgeplug valves are designed to ASME B16.34, API Standard 599 and API Standard 600, latest edition, where applicable. Testing is to API Standard 598, latest edition. Special hydrostatic testing and non-destructive examinations are available.
